Preparation and Storage

  • Stability and Storage

    Shipped at 4°C. Upon delivery aliquot and store at -20°C. Avoid freeze / thaw cycles.

    Preservative: None
    Endotoxin level is less than 0.1 ng per µg (1EU/µg).

    This product is an active protein and may elicit a biological response in vivo, handle with caution.

  • ReconstitutionCentrifuge the vial prior to opening. Reconstitute in water to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/ml. This solution can then be diluted into other aqueous buffers and stored at 4oC for 1 week or -20oC for future use.

  • FunctionGalactose-specific lectin which binds IgE. May mediate with the alpha-3, beta-1 integrin the stimulation by CSPG4 of endothelial cells migration. Together with DMBT1, required for terminal differentiation of columnar epithelial cells during early embryogenesis.
  • Tissue specificityA major expression is found in the colonic epithelium. It is also abundant in the activated macrophages.
  • Sequence similaritiesContains 1 galectin domain.
  • Cellular localizationNucleus. Cytoplasmic in adenomas and carcinomas. May be secreted by a non-classical secretory pathway and associate with the cell surface.
  • Information by UniProt
