ab38328 gave a positive signal in the following Human Lysates: Heart, Skeletal Muscle, Kidney (Data not shown), Thymus (Data not shown), HeLa, A431, HL60 (Data not shown), Ramos (Data not shown) and THP1 (Data not shown).
Storage instructionsShipped at 4°C. Store at +4°C short term (1-2 weeks). Upon delivery aliquot. Store at -20°C or -80°C. Avoid freeze / thaw cycle.
FunctionMay regulate apoptosis, cell proliferation and cell differentiation. Binds beta-galactoside and a wide array of complex carbohydrates. Inhibits CD45 protein phosphatase activity and therefore the dephosphorylation of Lyn kinase.
Tissue specificityExpressed in placenta, maternal decidua and fetal membranes. Within placenta, expressed in trophoblasts, stromal cells, villous endothelium, syncytiotrophoblast apical membrane and villous stroma. Within fetal membranes, expressed in amnion, chorioamniotic mesenchyma and chorion (at protein level). Expressed in cardiac, smooth, and skeletal muscle, neurons, thymus, kidney and hematopoietic cells.
Sequence similaritiesContains 1 galectin domain.
Cellular localizationSecreted > extracellular space > extracellular matrix.
