Galectin-3 Information for Pathologists
Member of carbohydrate-binding protein family known as lectins. One of 14 galectins, which function as cell receptors for N-acetyl-lactosamine moieties present on most extracellular matrix components. Also member of the beta-galactoside-binding protein family that plays an important role in cell - cell adhesion, cell - matrix interactions, macrophage activation, angiogenesis, metastasis, apoptosis. Uses by pathologists In one study, Gal-3+ with Ki67 > 6% was associated with parathyroid carcinomas vs. adenomas (Hum Pathol 2005;36:908).
Common Uses By Pathologists:
In one study, Gal-3+ with Ki67 > 6% was associated with parathyroid carcinomas vs. adenomas (Hum Pathol 2005;36:908). Positive staining - normal Endothelial cells, peripheral nerve, folliculostellate cells of adenohypophysis. Positive staining - disease Tumors of thyroid, head and neck, liver, colon, prolactinomas; parathyroid carcinoma; rarely in reactive of hyperplastic parathyroid lesions.
