  • Product overview

    Abcam’s Galectin 3 Mouse ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of Mouse Galectin 3 in serum, plasma and cell culture supernatants.

    This assay employs an antibody specific for Mouse Galectin 3 coated on a 96- well plate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and Galectin 3 present in a sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-Mouse Galectin 3 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 3 bound. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the intensity of the color is measured at 450 nm.

    Galactose-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 By similarity. In the nucleus: acts as a pre-mRNA splicing factor. Involved in acute inflammatory responses including neutrophil activation and adhesion, chemoattraction of monocytes macrophages, opsonization of apoptotic neutrophils, and activation of mast cells. Probably forms homo- or heterodimers. Interacts with DMBT1. Forms a complex with the ITGA3, ITGB1 and CSPG4. Interacts with LGALS3BP, LYPD3, CYHR1 and UACA. A major expression is found in the colonic epithelium. It is also abundant in the activated macrophages. Contains 1 galectin domain.
