  • Product overview

    Abcam’s LIGHT Human ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of Human LIGHT in plasma, and cell culture supernatants. (Human LIGHT concentration is pretty low in normal plasma, it may not be detected in this assay).

    This assay employs an antibody specific for Human LIGHT coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and LIGHT present in a sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-Human LIGHT antibody is added. After washing away unbound biotinylated antibody, HRP-conjugated streptavidin is pipetted to the wells. The wells are again washed, a TMB substrate solution is added to the wells and color develops in proportion to the amount of LIGHT bound. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the intensity of the color is measured at 450 nm.

    We have not been able to detect endogenous Human LIGHT in normal serum with ab100583, only in serum spiked with Human LIGHT.

  • Research areas

  • Function

    Cytokine that binds to TNFRSF3/LTBR. Binding to the decoy receptor TNFRSF6B modulates its effects. Activates NFKB, stimulates the proliferation of T-cells, and inhibits growth of the adenocarcinoma HT-29. Acts as a receptor for Herpes simplex virus.
  • Tissue specificity

    Predominantly expressed in the spleen but also found in the brain. Weakly expressed in peripheral lymphoid tissues and in heart, placenta, liver, lung, appendix, and kidney, and no expression seen in fetal tissues, endocrine glands, or nonhematopoietic tumor lines.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the tumor necrosis factor family.
  • Post-translational

    The soluble form of isoform 1 derives from the membrane form by proteolytic processing.
  • Cellular localization

    Cytoplasm; Secreted and Cell membrane.

Customer reviews and Q&As


Thank you for your enquiry. I can confirm that the ab100583 LIGHT Human ELISA Kit is QC tested with EDTA, heparin and citrate anti-coagulants so all 3 will be compatible.  Other anticoagulants have not been tested. I hope this will be helpful to you. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
