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.

Immunocytochemical analysis of mouse macrophage cells, labeling Galectin 3 with ab53082. Cells were formaldehyde fixed, permeabilized with Triton X-100 and blocked in 1% BSA for 30 minutes at 37°C. Incubation with ab53082 (diluted 1/500 in PBS) was for 1 hour at 37°C. The secondary antibody used was ab150073 diluted 1/500.
