||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 was purified using standard chromatography techniques.
||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.
||LGALS13 is formulated with 0.5M urea and 1x PBS buffer.
||Greater than 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
||Sterile Filtered colorless solution.
||Store at 4°C if entire vial will be used within 2-4 weeks. Store, frozen at -20°C for longer periods of time. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
