Our knowledge of the role of proteins in cellular processes is continually evolving. Most proteins, including Galectin 3 are typically involved in one or more signaling pathways or biological processes. Professionally manufactured recombinant proteins are increasingly becoming essential and commonplace tools for elucidating new knowledge about the role of proteins in both health and disease.
Protein Type: Recombinant
Biological Significance: Lectins, of either plant or animal origin, are carbohydrate binding proteins that interact with glycoprotein and glycolipids on the surface of animal cells. The Galectins are lectins that recognize and interact with beta-galactoside moieties. Galectin-3 regulates a number of biological processes, including embryogenesis, inflammatory responses, cell progression and metastasis. Galectin-3 is normally expressed in epithelia of a variety of tissues, including colon and endometrium, and in various inflammatory cells, including macrophages. Galectin-3 can function intracellularly, in controlling cell cycle and preventing T-cell apoptosis, and also extracellularly, in activating various cells, including monocytes/macrophages, mast cells, neutrophils, and lymphocytes.
Bioactivity: Determined by its ability to chemoattract human blood monocytes. Chemotactic activity was observed at a concentration of 2.5 ug/ml with a peak response obtained at 250 ug/ml.
Endotoxin Levels: Endotoxin level is less than 0.1 ng per ug (1 EU/ug). Expression System: E Coli. LGALS3 also interacts with the following gene(s): DDOST, GEMIN4, HRAS, LGALS3BP, MMP2, NRAS, PRKCSH, PTPRC, SUFU, TNC. Blood, Bone, Brain, Heart, Kidney, Liver, Lung, Muscle, Thyroid, Vascular tissues are correlated with this protein. Adenocarcinoma, Adenoma, Breast Neoplasms, Carcinoma, Disease Models, Animal, Fibrosis, Heart Diseases, Inflammation, Lung Diseases, Neoplasm Metastasis are some of the diseases may be linked to Galectin 3 protein. The following patways have been known to be associated with this gene.
