Animal-Free Galectin-8/LGALS8 Protein, Human (His)

Cat. No.: HY-P700081AF
COA Handling Instructions

Galectin-8/LGALS8 protein is an important enzyme in the glycosylation process, acting as β-1,3-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase to synthesize poly-N-acetyllactosamine. Galectin-8/LGALS8 is essential for modifying glycoproteins and glycolipids, catalyzes the transfer of N-acetylglucosamine to acceptor molecules, and exhibits specific activity on type 2 oligosaccharides. Animal-Free Galectin-8/LGALS8 Protein, Human (His) is the recombinant human-derived animal-FreeGalectin-8/LGALS8 protein, expressed by E. coli , with N-His labeled tag.

Animal-free recombinant proteins offer high consistency and stability, whithout using or contacting of any animal-derived materials and reagents.

Description

Galectin-8/LGALS8 protein is an important enzyme in the glycosylation process, acting as β-1,3-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase to synthesize poly-N-acetyllactosamine. Galectin-8/LGALS8 is essential for modifying glycoproteins and glycolipids, catalyzes the transfer of N-acetylglucosamine to acceptor molecules, and exhibits specific activity on type 2 oligosaccharides. Animal-Free Galectin-8/LGALS8 Protein, Human (His) is the recombinant human-derived animal-FreeGalectin-8/LGALS8 protein, expressed by E. coli , with N-His labeled tag.

Background

B3GNT4, a key enzyme in glycosylation processes, functions as a beta-1,3-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase responsible for synthesizing poly-N-acetyllactosamine. This enzyme plays a crucial role in the modification of glycoproteins and glycolipids by catalyzing the transfer of N-acetylglucosamine residues onto acceptor molecules. Notably, B3GNT4 exhibits specific activity for type 2 oligosaccharides, contributing to the diversification and complexity of glycan structures. The synthesis of poly-N-acetyllactosamine by B3GNT4 underscores its significance in modulating cellular interactions, as alterations in glycan structures can impact various biological processes, including cell adhesion, signaling, and recognition events.

Help & FAQs
  • Do most proteins show cross-species activity?

    Species cross-reactivity must be investigated individually for each product. Many human cytokines will produce a nice response in mouse cell lines, and many mouse proteins will show activity on human cells. Other proteins may have a lower specific activity when used in the opposite species.

  • Reconstitution Calculator

  • Dilution Calculator

  • Specific Activity Calculator

The reconstitution calculator equation

Volume (to add to vial) = Mass (in vial) ÷ Desired Reconstitution Concentration

Volume (to add to vial) = Mass (in vial) ÷ Desired Reconstitution Concentration
= ÷

The dilution calculator equation

Concentration (start) × Volume (start) = Concentration (final) × Volume (final)

This equation is commonly abbreviated as: C1V1 = C2V2

Concentration (start) × Volume (start) = Concentration (final) × Volume (final)
× = ×

The specific activity calculator equation

Specific Activity (Unit/mg) = 106 ÷ Biological Activity (ED50)

Specific Activity (Unit/mg) = 106 ÷ Biological Activity (ED50)
Unit/mg = 106 ÷ ng/mL
