The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
The ED50 of ab83917 is typically 1.0-1.5 ug/ml as measured by its ability to neutralize CD40 ligand mediated proliferation of T47-D cells.

Tissue specificityB-cells and in primary carcinomas.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in CD40 are the cause of hyper-IgM immunodeficiency syndrome type 3 (HIGM3) [MIM:606843]; also known as hyper-IgM syndrome 3. HIGM3 is an autosomal recessive disorder which includes an inability of B cells to undergo isotype switching, one of the final differentiation steps in the humoral immune system, an inability to mount an antibody-specific immune response, and a lack of germinal center formation.
