Product Details

Alternative Name:CD154, TNFSF 5, gp39
MW:~18kDa (SDS-PAGE).
Source:Produced in E. coli. The extracellular domain of human CD40L (CD154) (aa 116-261) is fused at the N-terminus to a linker peptide (6 aa) and a FLAG®-tag.
UniProt ID:P29965
Concentration:0.1mg/ml after reconstitution.
Formulation:Lyophilized. Contains PBS.
Purity:≥95% (SDS-PAGE)
Purity Detail:Purified by Multi-Step Chromatography.
Endotoxin Content:<0.1EU/µg purified protein (LAL test; Associates of Cape Cod).
Specificity:Binds to human CD40.
Application Notes:ELISA: binds to CD40 receptor at 1-10 ng/ml.
Reconstitution:Reconstitute each tube with 100µl sterile water. Further dilutions should be made with medium containing 5% fetal calf serum or a carrier protein.
Shipping: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 store at -20°C.
Technical Info/Product Notes:Historical data has shown that CD40L stimulates growth of B cells. The activity of rhsCD40L increases 1'000-fold (stimulation in the ng/ml range) in the presence of cross-linking enhancer (see Set Prod. No. ALX-850-064). For stimulation of mouse cells via CD40 use CD40L, Soluble (mouse) (recombinant) (Prod. No. ALX-522-070 or ALX-850-075).

Figure 2: Stimulation of B cells by CD40L, Soluble (human) (rec.). Dose dependent costimulation of CD19+ cells by CD40L in the presence of 10ng/ml of IL-4 and of 2µg/ml anti-µ antibodies. Note that in the presence of enhancer (Prod. No. ALX-804-034), the activity of CD40L is increased >1’000 fold.Method: CD19+ cells were incubated in 96-well plates (105 cells/well in 100µl RPMI supplemented with 10% FCS) for 72 hours in the presence of 10ng/ml IL-4, 2µg/ml of goat anti-human µ chain antibody and with the indicated concentration of CD40L in the presence and absence of 1µg/ml enhancer (Prod. No. ALX-804-034). Cells were pulsed for an additional 6 hours with [3H]thymidine (1µCi/well) and harvested. [3H]thymidine incorporation was monitored by liquid scintillation counting."
