Galectin-3 - Mouse monoclonal 9C4BSB 5540-BSB 5546
Galectin-3 is a 31 kDa beta-galactosidase binding lectin. It has been associated with binding to the basement membrane glycoprotein laminin. Galectin-3 is normally distributed in epithelia of many organs and various inflammatory cells, including macrophages, as well as dendritic cells and Kupffer cells. The expression of this lectin is up-regulated during inflammation, cell proliferation, cell differentiation and through trans-activation by viral proteins. Anti-Galectin-3 has been demonstrated to be valuable in differentiating between benign and malignant thyroid neoplasms in both histologic sections and Fine Needle Aspiration Biopsy material. Anti-Galectin-3 antibody has also been useful in identifying Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma.
Available options include prediluted (3ml, 7 ml, 15ml), concentrate (0.1 ml, 0.5ml, 1ml) and 5+ control slides.
