Galactoside-binding soluble lectin 13, Galectin-13, Gal-13, Placental tissue protein 13, PP13, Placental protein 13, LGALS13, PLAC8, GAL13.
Recombinant Galectin-13 is an E. coli expressed peptide, this protein is one of human placenta specific galectins, like all galectin family, it contains a carbohydrate recognition domain (CRD) as well. Increased blood concentration was found highly asscoaited with preeclampsia and HELLP syndrome in pregnant women. The molecular weight of galectin-13 is 16kDa.
Recombinant Human LGALS13 produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain having a molecular mass of 16kDa. The LGALS13 also might appear as a homodimer, having a total Mw of 32kDa. LGALS13 is fused to a 6xHis tag at n-terminal and purified using standard chromatography techniques.
Sterile Filtered colorless solution.
LGALS13 protein solution (0.5mg/ml) is formulated in 1xPBS buffer pH 7.4.
Store at 4°C if entire vial will be used within 2-4 weeks.
