Source Note
Biological Significance
Galectin is widely distributed in nematodes, insects, and porifers, as well as vertebrates, and it has also been found to be present in true fungi. Galectin does not just occur in the cytoplasm, it is also present in the nucleus, on the cell surface, in the extracellular matrix, etc., and it is thought to be involved in many biological phenomena, including development, differentiation, morphogenesis, tumor metastasis, cell death, and RNA splicing. Galectin3 is a beta galactoside-binding protein that has been named IgE-binding protein, CBP35, CBP30, Mac2, L29, L31, L34, etc., and structurally it is a chimera-type lectin composed of a sugarchain-binding domain (galectin domain) and a nonlectin domain. Its biological function is still uncertain, but many studies that should elucidate its function have been performed, and as a result participation of galectin-3 has been demonstrated in the biological phenomena of cell growth, adhesion, metastasis, and apoptosis. For example, a positive correlation has been shown between galectin-3 expression and the degree of malignant transformation in certain types of cell lines. A positive correlation has also recently been shown between galectin-3 expression and degree of malignancy in certain types of malignant tumors, and measurement of galectin3 is expected to possibly serve as an index of degree of tumor malignancy.
Galectin 3 antibody was raised in mouse using recombinant galectin3 protein as the immunogen

NCBI Summary for LGALS3
This gene encodes a member of the galectin family of carbohydrate binding proteins. Members of this protein family have an affinity for beta-galactosides. The encoded protein is characterized by an N-terminal proline-rich tandem repeat domain and a single C-terminal carbohydrate recognition domain. This protein can self-associate through the N-terminal domain allowing it to bind to multivalent saccharide ligands. This protein localizes to the extracellular matrix, the cytoplasm and the nucleus. This protein plays a role in numerous cellular functions including apoptosis, innate immunity, cell adhesion and T-cell regulation. The protein exhibits antimicrobial activity against bacteria and fungi. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants.[provided by RefSeq, Oct 2014]
