This Antibody was verified by Knockdown to ensure that the antibody binds to the antigen stated.
Recombinant rabbit monoclonal antibodies are produced using in vitro expression systems. The expression systems are developed by cloning in the specific antibody DNA sequences from immunoreactive rabbits. Then, individual clones are screened to select the best candidates for production. The advantages of using recombinant rabbit monoclonal antibodies include: better specificity and sensitivity, lot-to-lot consistency, animal origin-free formulations, and broader immunoreactivity to diverse targets due to larger rabbit immune repertoire.
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.
