Human Galectin-3BP/MAC-2BP Quantikine ELISA Kit Summary
The Quantikine Human Galectin-3BP/MAC-2BP Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid phase ELISA
designed to measure Galectin-3BP in cell culture supernates, serum, plasma,
saliva, and urine. It contains NS0-expressed recombinant
human Galectin-3BP and antibodies raised against the recombinant factor. This
immunoassay has been shown to accurately quantitate recombinant human Galectin-3BP. Resul...ts obtained using natural human Galectin-3BP showed linear curves
that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the Quantikine
kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to
determine relative mass values for natural human Galectin-3BP.

The galectins constitute a large family of carbohydrate-binding proteins that function in many systems both intracellularly and following secretion. Galectins contain either one or two carbohydrate recognition domains (CRR) which mediate recognition of N-acetyl-lactosamine-containing glycoproteins. Some galectins exist in multiple isoforms due to alternative splicing. Individual galectins differ in their tissue distribution and in their carbohydrate-binding specificities.
