FunctionCytokine that binds to TNFRSF13B/TACI and TNFRSF17/BCMA. TNFSF13/APRIL binds to the same 2 receptors. Together, they form a 2 ligands -2 receptors pathway involved in the stimulation of B-and T-cell function and the regulation of humoral immunity. A third B-cell specific BAFF-receptor (BAFFR/BR3) promotes the survival of mature B-cells and the B-cell response.
Tissue specificityAbundantly expressed in peripheral blood Leukocytes and is specifically expressed in monocytes and macrophages. Also found in the spleen, lymph node, bone marrow, T-cells and dendritic cells. A lower expression seen in placenta, heart, lung, fetal liver, thymus, and pancreas.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the tumor necrosis factor family.
modificationsThe soluble form derives from the membrane form by proteolytic processing.
Cellular localizationSecreted and Cell membrane.

Western blot analysis of varying levels of Recombinant human BAFF protein using ab271214 at 0.1 µg/ml.
Used in conjunction with compatible secondary reagents the detection limit for recombinant BAFF is 1.5 - 3.0 ng/lane, under either reducing or non-reducing conditions.
Human BAFF was detected by sandwich ELISA (using 100μl/well) using a concentration of 0.25-1.0 μg/ml of ab271214. This antibody in conjunction with an appropriate capture antibody, allows the detection of at least 1.5-3.0 ng/lane of recombinant BAFF protein.
