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.

Lanes 1 - 4: Merged signal (red and green). Green - ab76466 observed at 35 kDa. Red - loading control, ab8245, observed at 37 kDa.
ab76466 was shown to specifically react with Galectin 3 (KO) when Galectin 3 (KO) knockout samples were used. Wild-type and Galectin 3 (KO) knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. Ab76466 and ab8245 (Mouse anti GAPDH loading control) were incubated overnight at 4°C at 2000 dilution and 1/10000 dilution respectively. Blots were developed with Goat anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (IRDye® 800CW) preabsorbed ab216773 and Goat anti-Mouse IgG H&L (IRDye® 680RD) preabsorbed ab216776 secondary antibodies at 1/20000 dilution for 1 hour at room temperature before imaging.
Overlay histogram showing THP1 cells stained with ab76466 (red line). The cells were fixed with 80% methanol (5 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% human serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab76466, 1/100 dilution) for 30 min at 22°C. The secondary antibody used was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H&L) (ab150077) at 1/2000 dilution for 30 min at 22°C. Isotype control antibody (black line) was rabbit IgG (monoclonal) (1μg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Unlabelled sample (blue line) was also used as a control. Acquisition of >5,000 events were collected using a 20mW Argon ion laser (488nm) and 525/30 bandpass filter.
