LGALS2 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 152 amino acids (1-132 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 16.8 kDa. The LGALS2 is fused to a 20 amino acid His-Tag at N-terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
LGALS2 is a soluble beta-galactoside binding lectin that controls cell-to-cell adhesion and cell-to-extracellular matrix interactions and takes part in tumor progression, pre-mRNA splicing and apoptosis. LGALS2 induces apoptosis in activated T cells and binds to the cytokine lymphotoxin-alpha (LTA) with threat of myocardial infarction.
The Galectin-2 His tag 0.5mg/ml protein solution contains 20mM Tris-HCl pH-8, 0.2M NaCl, 10% glycerol & 1mM DTT.
Store at 4°C if entire vial will be used within 2-4 weeks. Store, frozen at -20°C for longer periods of time. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
