Species cross-reactivity is determined by western blot.
Applications Key: W=Western Blotting, IF-IC=Immunofluorescence (Immunocytochemistry)
Specificity / Sensitivity
Galectin-1/LGALS1 (D6O8T) Rabbit mAb recognizes endogenous levels of total galectin-1/LGALS1 protein.
Source / Purification
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues near the amino terminus of human galectin-1/LGALS1 protein.
Western blot analysis of extracts from various cell lines using Galectin-1/LGALS1 (D6O8T) Rabbit mAb (upper) and GAPDH (D16H11) Rabbit mAb #5174 (lower). The LNCap cell line extract is negative for galectin-1/LGALS1 expression as expected.
Galectins are a family of β-galactose binding proteins that are characterized by their affinity for poly-N-acetyllactosamine-enriched glycoconjugates and their carbohydrate-binding site (1,2). Members of the galectin family have been implicated in a variety of biological functions including cell adhesion (3), growth regulation (4), cytokine production (5), T cell apoptosis (6), and immune responses (7). Galectin-1/LGALS1 has been shown to be expressed in a wide range of tissues and cell types. The level and pattern of expression of galectin-1 has been shown to change during development (8). In addition to a role in developmental processes, galectin-1 has been shown to be involved in central immune tolerance and may function in tumorigenesis by modulating the immune response to the tumor (9,10). Research studies have shown that galectin-1 expression is increased in several human cancers, suggesting a correlation with metastatic potential (10).
