Application Abreviews Notes
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 14 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 14 kDa).Can be blocked with Human Galectin 1 peptide (ab38327).


  • 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.
