Form Liquid or Lyophilized powder
Note: We will preferentially ship the format that we have in stock, however, if you have any special requirement for the format, please remark your requirement when placing the order, we will prepare according to your demand.
Buffer If the delivery form is liquid, the default storage buffer is Tris/PBS-based buffer, 5%-50% glycerol.
Note: If you have any special requirement for the glycerol content, please remark when you place the order.
If the delivery form is lyophilized powder, the buffer before lyophilization is Tris/PBS-based buffer, 6% Trehalose, pH 8.0.
Reconstitution We recommend that this vial be briefly centrifuged prior to opening to bring the contents to the bottom. Please reconstitute protein in deionized sterile water to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL.We recommend to add 5-50% of glycerol (final concentration) and aliquot for long-term storage at -20°C/-80°C. Our default final concentration of glycerol is 50%. Customers could use it as reference.
and FAQs
Protein FAQs
Storage Condition Store at -20°C upon receipt, aliquoting is necessary for mutiple use. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Shelf Life The shelf life is related to many factors, storage state, buffer ingredients, storage temperature and the stability of the protein itself.
Generally, the shelf life of liquid form is 6 months at -20°C/-80°C. The shelf life of lyophilized form is 12 months at -20°C/-80°C.
Lead Time Delivery time may differ from different purchasing way or location, please kindly consult your local distributors for specific delivery time.
Notes Repeated freezing and thawing is not recommended. Store working aliquots at 4°C for up to one week.

Target Data

Function This protein binds beta-galactoside. Its physiological function is not yet known.
Gene References into Functions
  1. Study observed decreased methylation at the DHCR24 locus in offspring of women with active pregnancy eating disorders (ED) and increased methylation at the LGALS2 locus in offspring of women with past ED compared to controls. PMID: 29093763
  2. Data show that lactose binding to galectin-2 (Gal-2) stabilizes the lectin's conformation. PMID: 27563008
  3. Gal-3 was significantly downregulated only in the extravillous trophoblast of intrauterine growth restriction ( IUGR) placentas. In contrast, expressions of gal-2 and gal-13 were downregulated in both villous and extravillous trophoblast cells of IUGR placentas. PMID: 27070577
  4. Galectin-2 binding to different circulating human monocyte subsets depends on monocyte surface expression levels of CD14. It skews human macrophages to a M1-like proinflammatory phenotype. PMID: 25884209
  5. PPARG rs1152002, AGTR1 rs5186, CXCL16 rs3744700 and LGALS2 rs7291467 polymorphisms may be closely related to the development of coronary heart disease PMID: 26045830
  6. Lower LGALS2 gene expression is associated with acute myeloid leukemia. PMID: 25953264
  7. Data suggest that expression of galectin 2 and galectin 2 mRNA is down-regulated in placental extravillous trophoblast and decidua in women with pre-eclampsia as compared to women with normal term pregnancy. PMID: 25707742
  8. The increased circulation of galectins -2, -4 and -8 in cancer patients contributes substantially to the increased circulation of G-CSF, IL-6 and MCP-1 by interaction with the blood vascular endothelium PMID: 24384681
  9. Cys57Met (single-site) mutant and its monoPEGylated derivative can markedly reduce binding of galectin-2 to physiological binding sites PMID: 23581621
  10. results identify galectin-2 as a novel inhibitor of arteriogenesis and its modulation may constitute a new therapeutic strategy for the stimulation of arteriogenesis in patients with coronary artery disease. PMID: 21831908
  11. LTA and LGALS2 polymorphisms affect the subclinical phenotype of the coronary artery, which predisposes to the incidence of myocardial infarction. PMID: 22310064
  12. low expression of galectin-2 was significantly associated with lymph node metastasis and advanced clinical stage in patients with gastric cancer PMID: 22015694
  13. These results suggested differences in the inflammatory response to malaria in children and adults with polymorphisms of the galectin-2 gene. PMID: 20500087
  14. the LTA gene and LGALS2-C3279T are not associated with coronary artery disease PMID: 19726041
  15. Our case-control association study in a Japanese population showed that a single nucleotide polymorphism in LGALS2 encoding galectin-2 is significantly associated with susceptibility to myocardial infarction PMID: 15129282
  16. This study classifies galectin-2 as proapoptotic effector for activated T cells, raising a therapeutic perspective. PMID: 15356130
  17. Fasting plasma glucose and serum insulin were statistically significantly associated with LGALS2 PMID: 16468038
  18. Galectin 2 induces surface phosphatidylserine exposure in a carbohydrate-dependent fashion in activated, but not resting, human neutrophils and in several leukocyte cell lines. PMID: 16940423
  19. no significant association of allele frequency with risk of myocardial infarction PMID: 17098239
  20. polymorphism of LGALS2 was not associated with the severity of coronary atherosclerosis in Japanese and Korean populations PMID: 17493152
  21. Data show that galectin-2 SNPs are not associated with myocardial infarction in two different German populations. PMID: 17497114
  22. Galectin-2 was present in nuclei of Geneti-cally engineered human colon carcinoma cells with stable ectopic expression. PMID: 17999373
  23. Data show that genotypes for the 3279C-->T polymorphism (rs7291467) of LGALS2 was associated (P<0.05) with the prevalence of atherothrombotic cerebral infarction. PMID: 18506375
  24. Galectin-2 (LGALS2) 3279C/T polymorphism may be independently associated with diastolic blood pressure in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. PMID: 19330599
  25. Galectin-2 is strongly expressed in inflammatory skin of autoimmune-prone transgenic mice, indicating that galectin-2 is up-regulated upon experimental cutaneous inflammation. PMID: 19380789
