Description: LGALS1 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 135 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 14.7kDa.The LGALS1 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Protein Derived From: Escherichia Coli.

Physical Appearance: Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.

Purity: Greater than 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.

Stability: Lyophilized Galectin-1 Recombinant although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution Galectin-1 should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.

Biological Activity: The activity of Human Galectin-1 which is determined by the ability to induce chemotaxis of human THP-1 cells is detectable starting at 100ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of 1.0x104 units/mg.

Solubility: It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized LGALS1 in sterile 18MOmega-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.

Protein content: UV spectroscopy at 280 nm using the absorbency value of 0.59 as the extinction coefficient for a 0.1% (1mg/ml) solution. This value is calculated by the PC GENE computer analysis program of protein sequences (IntelliGenetics).
