    • Background

      Galectin-3 (Gal-3) is one of the lectin family members, which is the only chimera‑type galectin, containing one carbohydrate recognition domain (CRD) connected to a long, flexible N‑terminal domain. The C‑terminal CRD is responsible for β-galactoside binding, and the N‑terminal domain is essential for its multimerization, and interaction with other intracellular proteins. Galectin-3 is predominantly presented in the cytoplasm and expressed on the cell surface, and then often secreted into biological fluids, such as serum and urine. Numerous studies have indicated that galectin-3 plays a crucial role in cell proliferation, apoptosis, gene expression, immune surveillance, inflammation, fibrosis, and host defense.

  • Instruction
    • Reconstitution

      It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized protein in sterile H₂O to a concentration not less than 200 μg/mL and incubate the stock solution for at least 20 min to ensure sufficient re-dissolved.


      The product is shipped with polar packs. Upon receipt, store it immediately at -20°C or lower for long term storage.

    • Stability & Storage

      This product is stable after storage at:

      • -20°C for 12 months in lyophilized state from date of receipt.
      • -20°C or -80°C for 1 month under sterile conditions after reconstitution.

      Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.
