ID Rat Monoclonal anti-Mac-2 (Galectin-3) Antibody
Antigen Description Galectin-3 (galactose-specific lectin 3) is a unique member of the ß-galactoside-binding lectin family molecule, which plays an important role in regulation of cell proliferation, differentiation, and tumor cell metastasis. Galectin-3 is mainly found in the cytoplasm, but it is also seen in the nucleus and can be secreted by the non-classical, secretory pathway. In general, secreted galectin-3 mediates cell migration, cell adhesion, and cell-cell interactions through its high affinity binding with galactose-containing glycoproteins on the cell surface. Cytoplasmic galectin-3 exhibits anti-apoptotic activity and regulates several signal transduction pathways, whereas nuclear galectin-3 has been associated with pre-mRNA splicing and gene expression. Recent studies also indicate the potential role of galectin-3 as a biomarker for acute and chronic heart failure.
