Abstract: Summary Galectins are soluble lectins that participate in many physiological and pathological functions. Since they can act extracellularly, the use of the recombinant protein is a recurrent strategy for studying their biological functions. Here, we provide a general protocol for the production of Galectins and their isolated or chimeric domains. We take advantage of their lectin activity and the 6xHis-tag addition for purification, thus obtaining a highly pure and active Galectin to use in both …
