MA1-940 detects galectin-3 from human, mouse and rat tissues.
MA1-940 has been successfully used in Western blot, immunohistochemistry, immunofluorescence, immunocytochemistry and ELISA procedures. By Western blot, this antibody detects an ~30 kDa protein representing galectin-3 from Jurkat cells transfected with human galectin-3. Immunohistochemical staining of galectin-3 in rat olfactory bulb with MA1-940 yields a pattern consistent with nuclear and plasma membrane staining. This antibody is not suitable for mouse NIH-3T3 in Western blot analysis. This antibody also detects a non-specific band in Hela cell lysates at ~21 kDa.
MA1-940 antigen is full length recombinant human galectin-3. The epitope for this antibody has been mapped to the first 58 amino acids of galectin-3.
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. 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.
