Specifications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab217457 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

  • Biological activity

    Determined by the dose-dependent stimulation of IL-8 production by human PBMC. The expected ED50 for this effect is 5-10 ng/ml. Note: Results may vary with PBMC donors.

  • Applications

    SDS-PAGE

    Functional Studies

    HPLC

  • Purity

Preparation and Storage

  • Stability and Storage

    Shipped at 4°C. Store at +4°C short term (1-2 weeks). Upon delivery aliquot. Store at -20°C or -80°C. Avoid freeze / thaw cycle.

    This product is an active protein and may elicit a biological response in vivo, handle with caution.

  • Reconstitution
    Lyophilised from a sterile filtered solution. Centrifuge the vial prior to opening. Reconstitute in Water to a concentration of 0.1 - 1.0 mg/ml. Do not vortex. For extended storage, it is recommended to further dilute in a buffer containing a carrier protein (example 0.1% BSA) and store in working aliquots at -20C to -80C

  • Function
    Mediates B-cell proliferation in the absence of co-stimulus as well as IgE production in the presence of IL-4. Involved in immunoglobulin class switching.
    Release of soluble CD40L from platelets is partially regulated by GP IIb/IIIa, actin polymerization, and an matrix metalloproteinases (MMP) inhibitor-sensitive pathway.
  • Tissue specificity
    Specifically expressed on activated CD4+ T-lymphocytes.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in CD40LG are the cause of X-linked immunodeficiency with hyper-IgM type 1 (HIGM1) [MIM:308230]; also known as X-linked hyper IgM syndrome (XHIM). HIGM1 is an immunoglobulin isotype switch defect characterized by elevated concentrations of serum IgM and decreased amounts of all other isotypes. Affected males present at an early age (usually within the first year of life) recurrent bacterial and opportunistic infections, including Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia and intractable diarrhea due to cryptosporidium infection. Despite substitution treatment with intravenous immunoglobulin, the overall prognosis is rather poor, with a death rate of about 10% before adolescence.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the tumor necrosis factor family.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    The soluble form derives from the membrane form by proteolytic processing.
    N-linked glycan is a mixture of high mannose and complex type. Glycan structure does not influence binding affinity to CD40.
    Not O-glycosylated.
  • Cellular localization
    Secreted and Cell membrane.
  • Information by UniProt
