  • Function
    Cytokine that binds to TNFRSF13B/TACI and to TNFRSF17/BCMA. May be implicated in the regulation of tumor cell growth. May be involved in monocyte/macrophage-mediated immunological processes.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed at high levels in transformed cell lines, cancers of colon, thyroid, lymphoid tissues and specifically expressed in monocytes and macrophages.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the tumor necrosis factor family.
  • Post-translational
    The precursor is cleaved by furin.

  • ab16085 at 1ug/ml detecting  membrane-bound human APRIL on HEK 293T cells by FACS analysis.


    HEK 293T cells (5x105) were mock transfected (thin line) or transfected with an expression plasmid enabling surface expression of a non-cleavable mouse APRIL (thick line). Cells were incubated on ice for 30 min. in 50ul FACS buffer (PBS, 5% fetal calf serum, 0.02% azide) containing 1ug/ml of MAb to APRIL (Sacha-1). After washing in FACS buffer, PE-conjugated antibody to rat IgG was added. Cells were incubated on ice for 30 min., washed and then analyzed by flow cytometry.

  • Immunostaining of HEK-293T cells transfected with a murine APRIL expression plasmid (left panels), or mock transfected (right panel).

    Three days after transfection of cells with the indicated constructs, cells were fixed with acetone. Slides were blocked with IgG, and incubated for 1 hour with 5ug/ml ab16085 or control murine IgG (isotype control) in 1%BSA / 1x PBS for 1 hour. After washes wish PBS, samples were incubated with the secondary Ab for 1 hour, washed in PBS and revealed with StreptABComplex/HRP (Vector) and AEC.

Thank you for contacting us.

I can confirm that, I have sent reminder to our collaborator lab. I will send you the requested details as soon as I receive a reply from them.

Many thanks for having patience!

Thank you for your enquiry and patience. Regarding ab16085 (APRIL antibody), this antibody has not been tested on endogeneous APRIL. This would be difficult because APRIL is rapidly cleaved in the cells by furin and secreted. ab16085 was tested in...
