  • Highly active MEGACD40L® oligomer mimics in vivo membrane-assisted CD40L aggregation and stimulation without the need for enhancers
  • High purity with low endotoxin levels
  • Experienced manufacturing results in consistent and dependable lot-to-lot performance
  • Optimized formulation for improved stability and enhanced activity
MEGACD40L® is a high activity protein in which two trimeric CD40 ligands are artificially linked via the collagen domain of ACRP30/adiponectin. This protein very effectively simulates the natural membrane-assisted aggregation of CD40L. It provides a simple and equally potent alternative to [CD40L+enhancer] combinations (Prod. No. ALX-850-075).

Product Specification

Alternative Name:CD40L:ACRP30headless, CD154:ACRP30headless, TNFSF5:ACRP30headless, gp39:ACRP30headless
Source:Produced in CHO cells. The extracellular domain of mouse CD40L (CD154) (aa 115-260) is fused at the N-terminus to mouse ACRP30headless (aa 18-111) and a FLAG®-tag.
UniProt ID:P27548 (CD40L), Q60994 (ACRP30)
Concentration:0.1mg/ml after reconstitution.
Formulation:Lyophilized. Contains PBS.
Purity:≥95% (SDS-PAGE)
Endotoxin Content:<0.1EU/µg purified protein (LAL test; Associates of CAPE COD Inc.).
Biological Activity:Binds to mouse and human CD40. Induces B cells activation (as demonstrated by dose-dependent upregulation of CD86).
Reconstitution:Reconstitute with 100µl sterile water. Further dilutions should be made with medium containing 5% fetal calf serum.
Shipping:Shipped on Blue Ice
Long Term Storage:-20°C
Use/Stability:Stable for at least 6 months after receipt when stored at -20°C.
Handling:Avoid freeze/thaw cycles. After reconstitution, prepare aliquots and freeze in liquid nitrogen.
Technical Info/Product Notes:FLAG is a registered trademark of Sigma-Aldrich Co.
MEGACD40L&reg;&nbsp;Protein (soluble) (mouse), (recombinant) Flow Cytometry
B cell lymphocytes activation after titration with MEGACD40L® (soluble) (mouse) (rec.). Method: PBMCs (Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cells) were incubated at 37°C, 5% CO2 for 48 hours in 48 well plates (1 x 106 cells per well) containing 200µl serum free test media with or without 1000ng/mL MEGACD40L® (soluble) (mouse) (rec.) (Prod. No. ALX-522-120). After treatment the cells were washed 3X with PBS + 1% BSA. The cells were dual stained for 2 hours at 4°C with mouse anti-human CD19 (PE conjugate) and mouse anti-human CD86 (APC conjugate). The cells were washed 2X with PBS + 1% BSA, then re-suspended In PBS. Samples were analyzed by on a BD Facs Calibur flow cytometer. The data is presented as the percent of CD86 positive cells per CD19 positive B cells with or without treatment with 1000ng/mL mega mouse CD40L.
