Human Galectin-3 ELISA Kit

Galectin-3 belongs to a family of carbohydrate-binding proteins known as lectins. In humans, it is encoded by the LGALS3 gene. Galectin-3 has a N-terminal proline-rich tandem repeat domain and a single C-terminal carbohydrate recognition domain. It binds beta-galactoside and IgE, and is required for terminal differentiation of columnar epithelial cells during early embryogenesis. Galectin-3 is involved in a broad range of functions, including innate immunity, chemoattraction, cell adhesion, cell growth and differentiation, T-cell regulation, and apoptosis. High levels of galectin-3 expression have been associated with heart failure, cancer, and inflammation. Galectin-3 is also known as lectin, galactoside-binding, soluble, 3; carbohydrate-binding protein 35, galactose-specific lectin 3, laminin-binding protein, lectin L-29, Mac-2 antigen, IgE-binding protein, L31, GAL3, MAC2, CBP35, GALBP, GALIG, and LGALS2.

This kit is a solid-phase sandwich ELISA using two antibodies that are highly specific to human galectin-3 protein; one is precoated on the ELISA plate and the other is HRP-conjugated. This assay kit can be used to measure soluble human galectin-3 protein in serum, EDTA plasma, cell and tissue lysates, and cell culture supernatants.
