New validated monoclonal antibody for Galectin-3 expression studies

Purified Anti-Mac-2/Galectin-3 antibody (CL8942AP) - Cedarlane at tebu-bio.com

Galectin-3 (Mac-2) is a β-galactoside-binding lectin expressed in a variety of tissues and cell types (incl. activated macrophages, eosinophils, mast cells, dendritic cells, kidney cells, and sensory neurons).
Galectin-3 is a promiscuous protein modulating a diverse set of cellular functions such as cell adhesion, cell-matrix interactions, cell migration, macrophage activation, and apoptosis.
It has been described to play a role in many pathological states such as fibrosis, cardiovascular diseases and cancer.
Due to the role of galectin-3 in various pathologies, it is increasingly being investigated as a potential diagnostic marker and therapeutic target.

Being able to access well-characterized research tools enabling Galectin-3 expression studies is therefore crucial.
In this context, Cedarlane has recently released a 100% validated monoclonal antibody (clone M3/38) valid for a broad range of applications.
