LGALS8,a member of the galectin gene family, is identified to specifically express in prostate , and is espacially overexpressed in malignant tumors, thereby can be used as an extra specific identifier of malignancies. The gene encoded protein facilitates both cell-cell and cell matrix interactions in a method parallel to the selectin subgroup of C-type lectins.

Endotoxin Test:
<0.1 EU per 1 μg of the protein by the LAL method. Activity: Measured by its ability to agglutinate human red blood cells. The ED50 for this effect is <8 μg/mL. Purity: >98% as determined by SDS-PAGE. Ni-NTA chromatography

The protein was lyophilized from a solution containing 1X PBS, pH 7.4.

It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized protein in sterile H2O to a concentration not less than 100 μg/mL and incubate the stock solution for at least 20 min to ensure sufficient re-dissolved.

Lyophilized protein should be stored at -20°C. Upon reconstitution, protein aliquots should be stored at -20°C or -80°C.

Please use within one month after protein reconstitution.
