Galectin-3 (Human) OmniKine ELISA Kit is produced by Assay Biotech Company. It's also identified by the synonym '' Carbohydrate-binding protein 35 or Galactose-specific lectin 3 '', it's a Liquid who targets the Human Galectin-3 and that is a galactose-specific lectin. It's able to recognize, detecte and quantificate the endogenous levels of both recombinant and naturally produced Human Galectin-3 proteins, within any experimental sample including cell lysates, serum and plasma. Galectin-3 interacts with DMBT1 for terminal differentiation during early embryogenesis of cylindrical epithelial cells. It acts as a pre-mRNA splicing factor, in the nucleus. It's involved in acute inflammatory responses, including monocyte macrophage chemoattraction, neutrophil activation and adhesion, and mast cell activation. It probably forms homo- or heterodimers. It's abundant in activated macrophages and strongly expressed in colonic epithelium. It's has a colorimetric 450 nm as a detection method, within the range of 63-4000 pg/ml.
