Galectin-1 (LGALS1/Galaptin/L-14) is a protein from the family of beta-galactoside-binding proteins and is expressed in a variety of cells and tissues. Cell growth and activity are modulated by Galectin-1, either positively or negatively, depending on the cell type and activation status (1). It has been shown to interact with laminin, fibronectin, CD45, CD43, CD7, CD2 and CD3 (2). In addition, Galectin-1 induces apoptosis of activated T cells and T-leukemia cell lines and inhibits the protein phosphatase activity of CD45.

<0.1 EU/µg as determined by the LAL method
The biological activity of Human Galectin-1 was determined by its ability to agglutinate human red blood cells (Hadari, Y.R. et al., 2000, J. Cell Sci. 113:2385). The expected ED50 for this effect is typically 0.5 - 3 μg/mL.
