||Recombinant human Galectin-9 protein fused to his-tag was expressed inE.coliand purified by using conventional chromatography techniques. 18.5kDa (168aa).
||Galectin-9 (Gal-9) is a member of animal lectins that have an affinity to ß-galactosides and Forssman pentasaccharide. It is strongly overexpressed in Hodgkin"s disease tissue and it might participate in the interaction between the H&RS cells with their surrounding cells and might thus play a role in the pathogenesis of this disease and/or its consistently associated immunodeficiency.
