  • Product overview

    The Human Galectin-4 Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) kit (ab213785) is designed for the quantitative measurement of Human Galectin-4 in cell culture supernatants, cell lysates, tissue homogenates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA). 

    The ELISA kit is based on standard sandwich enzyme-linked immune-sorbent assay technology. A monoclonal antibody from mouse specific for Galectin-4 has been pre-coated onto 96-well plates. Standards (Expression system for standard: E.coli; Immunogen sequence: A2-I323) and test samples are added to the wells, a biotinylated detection polyclonal antibody from goat specific for Galectin-4 is added subsequently and then followed by washing with PBS or TBS buffer. Avidin-Biotin-Peroxidase Complex is added and unbound conjugates are washed away with PBS or TBS buffer. HRP substrate TMB is used to visualize HRP enzymatic reaction. TMB is catalyzed by HRP to produce a blue color product that changed into yellow after adding acidic stop solution. The density of yellow is proportional to the Human Galectin-4 amount of sample captured in plate.

  • Notes

    Galectin-4, also known as LGALS4 or GAL4, is a protein that in humans is encoded by the LGALS4 gene. It is mapped to 19q13.2. Galectins are a family of animal lectins defined by an affinity for beta galactoside-containing saccharides and by shared sequence elements. Galectin-4 is expressed as a 38-kD protein in the human colon adenocarcinoma T84 cell line. Galectin-4 is an S-type lectin that is strongly under expressed in colorectal cancer, and this gene plays a role in cell adhesion. It has been found that decreased Galectin-4 expression occurs early in colorectal carcinogenesis.
