LGALS4

(redirected from GAL4)

LGALS4

A gene on chromosome 19q13.2 that encodes a galectin family-type carbohydrate-binding protein, which modulates cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions. LGALS is only expressed in the (large and small) intestine, and is under-expressed in colorectal cancer.

Flies crossed to GAL4 drivers (GAL4 drivers crossed to UAS-RNAi lines) and controls (GAL4 drivers or UAS-RNAi crossed to w1118) were raised at 25oC until the adults emerged (F1 generation); once collected adults were raised at 29oC for the appropriate times.

The cell culture assays were performed after transfection of (i) pBIND-PPAR[beta]/[delta], expressing Gal4-DBD and PPAR[beta]/[delta]-LBD fusion protein, and (ii) pGRE-LUC, which contains a Gal4 response element followed by firefly luciferase reporter gene.
cDNAs corresponding to FULL (225 amino acids), NTR (N-terminal region of 1-118 amino acids), and CTR (C-terminal region of 119-225 amino acids) were inserted into the EcoRI and PstI sites of pGBKT7 (Clontech, USA) fusing with the GAL4 DNA-binding domain.
