Mouse Galectin 3 ELISA Kit (ab203369) is a single-wash 90 min sandwich ELISA designed for the quantitative measurement of Galectin 3 protein in cell culture supernatant, cit plasma, edta plasma, hep plasma, serum, and urine. It uses our proprietary SimpleStep ELISA® technology. Quantitate Mouse Galectin 3 with 2.4 pg/ml sensitivity.
SimpleStep ELISA® technology employs capture antibodies conjugated to an affinity tag that is recognized by the monoclonal antibody used to coat our SimpleStep ELISA® plates. This approach to sandwich ELISA allows the formation of the antibody-analyte sandwich complex in a single step, significantly reducing assay time. See the SimpleStep ELISA® protocol summary in the image section for further details. Our SimpleStep ELISA® technology provides several benefits:
- Single-wash protocol reduces assay time to 90 minutes or less
- High sensitivity, specificity and reproducibility from superior antibodies
- Fully validated in biological samples
- 96-wells plate breakable into 12 x 8 wells strips
A 384-well SimpleStep ELISA® microplate (ab203359) is available to use as an alternative to the 96-well microplate provided with SimpleStep ELISA® kits.
Galectin-3 (Gal-3, Galactoside-binding protein, Mac-2 antigen) is in the Galectin family of carbohydrate-binding proteins and is active intracellularly and extracellularly. It is widely expressed, including by fibroblasts and macrophages. Intracellularly, Galectin-3 can function in the nucleus as a pre-mRNA splicing factor and in the cytoplasm it has roles in endocytosis, exocytosis and apoptosis. Extracellularly, Galectin-3 is pro-inflammatory and is involved in innate immunity. Galectin-3 can be monomeric or form higher order homo and hetero oligomers.
PlatformPre-coated microplate (12 x 8 well strips)

RelevanceGalactose-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.

SimpleStep ELISA technology allows the formation of the antibody-antigen complex in one single step, reducing assay time to 90 minutes. Add samples or standards and antibody mix to wells all at once, incubate, wash, and add your final substrate. See protocol for a detailed step-by-step guide.
Background-subtracted data values (mean +/- SD) are graphed.
The concentrations of Galectin-3 were measured in duplicate and interpolated from the Galectin-3 standard curve and corrected for sample dilution. The interpolated dilution factor corrected values are plotted (mean +/- SD, n=2). The mean Galectin-3 concentration was determined to be 11.3 ng/mL in mouse serum, 13.2 ng/mL in mouse plasma (Citrate), and 12.9 ng/mL in mouse plasma (EDTA).
J774A.1 cells were grown in the absence (unstimulated) or presence of Phorbol Myristate Acetate (PMA) and phytohemagglutinin (PHA) (stimulated) for 3 days. Galectin-3 was measured in 2-fold diluted cell culture supernatants of unstimulated and PMA/PHA stimulated J774A.1 and cell culture media. Measured values were interpolated from the Galectin-3 Standard Curve diluted in Sample Diluent NS and corrected for dilution factor. Mean of duplicate values +/-SD are graphed: 14 ng/mL unstimulated, 38.9 ng/mL stimulated, and undetectable in media.
