Additional Details : Weight : 0.01000kg
DescriptionDescription: The MR1 monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse CD154, a 39kDa transmembrane glycoprotein also known as CD40 ligand (CD40L). CD154 is expressed transiently by activated T cells. Through its binding to CD40 on antigen presenting cells (APC) including B cells, monocytes/macrophages, and dendritic cells, it serves a crucial function in T cell-APC cognate interaction. CD154-interaction with CD40 transduces signals for T-dependent B cell activation and induces B cells to enter the cell cycle.For staining for flow cytometric analysis, it is important to stimulate enriched T cells or enriched CD4 cells (using depletion strategy) prior to staining with MR1.Applications Reported: The MR1 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis. It has also been reported to inhibit binding of CD154 to CD40 and activation of B cells.Applications Tested: This MR1 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of stimulated mouse splenocytes. This can be used at less than or equal to 0.5 μg per test. A test is defined as the amount (μg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 μL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.Endotoxin: Less than 0.001 ng/ug antibody as determined by the LAL assay.Storage and handling: Use in a sterile environment.Filtration: 0.2μm post-manufacturing filtered.Purity: Greater than 90%, as determined by SDS-PAGE.Endotoxin Level: Less than 0.001 ng/μg antibody, as determined by LAL assay.Aggregation: Less than 10%, as determined by HPLC.
