Immunofluorescence analysis of Galectin 1 was done on 70% confluent log phase U-87MG cells. The cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde for 10 minutes, permeabilized with 0.1% Triton™ X-100 for 10 minutes, and blocked with 1% BSA for 1 hour at room temperature. The cells were labeled with Galectin 1 (6C8.4-1) Mouse Monoclonal Antibody (437400) at 2ug/mL in 0.1% BSA and incubated for 3 hours at room temperature and then labeled with Goat anti-Mouse IgG (H+L) Superclonal™ Secondary Antibody, Alexa Fluor® 488 conjugate (Product # A28175) at a dilution of 1:2000 for 45 minutes at room temperature (Panel a: green). Nuclei (Panel b: blue) were stained with SlowFade® Gold Antifade Mountant with DAPI (S36938). F-actin (Panel c: red) was stained with Alexa Fluor® 555 Rhodamine Phalloidin (Product # R415, 1:300). Panel d is a merged image showing cytoplasmic localization. Panel e is a no primary antibody control. The images were captured at 60X magnification.

The peptides used for immunization have ~90% similarity to swine, rat, ovine, Chinese hamster sequences and 80% similar to bovine and mouse sequences.
Galectin-1 belongs to a large family of carbohydrate-binding proteins called lectins. Galectin-1can be either monomeric or homodimeric and is found in a wide variety of cells and tissue types. Galectin-1 can control cell growth, proliferation, induce apoptosis of activated T cells while it can also modulate cytokine secretion or inhibit pro-inflammatory cytokine production. Galectin-1 plays an important role in acute and chronic inflammation.
