Introduction

LGLAS9 binds galactosides and has high affinity for the Forssman pentasaccharide. LGLAS9 participates in thymocyte-epithelial interactions relevant to the biology of the thymus and Inhibits cell proliferation. LGLAS9 is a ligand for HAVCR2/TIM3. LGLAS9 Induces T-helper type 1 lymphocyte (Th1) death. LGLAS9 performs as an eosinophil chemoattractant LGLAS9 is an S-type lectin which is over-expressed in Hodgkin's disease tissue and takes part in the interaction between the H&RS cells with their surrounding cells.

Description

LGALS9 produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 168 amino acids (1-148 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 18.5 kDa.
Galectin-9 is fused to a 20 amino acid His-Tag at N-terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Source

Escherichia Coli.

Physical Appearance
