  • Product overview

    Abcam’s Galectin 7 (GAL7) Human ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of Human Galectin 7 in serum, plasma, and cell culture supernatants.

    This assay employs an antibody specific for Human Galectin 7 coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and Galectin 7 present in a sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-Human Galectin 7 antibody is added. After washing away unbound biotinylated antibody, HRP-conjugated streptavidin is pipetted to the wells. The wells are again washed, a TMB substrate solution is added to the wells and color develops in proportion to the amount of Galectin 7 bound. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the intensity of the color is measured at 450 nm.

  • RelevanceGalectins belong to a family of related beta-galactoside-binding lectins, also referred to as S-type or S-Lac lectins. Members of this family have been implicated in a variety of functions, including growth regulation, cell adhesion, migration, neoplastic transformation, and immune responses. Galectin 7 is thought to be involved in cell-cell and/or cell-matrix interactions necessary for normal growth control. Galectin 7 has been implicated in apoptosis and is believed to upregulate MMP9 and as such be involved in the progression of tumorigenesis.
