Product Details

Alternative Name:TNFRSF 17, B cell maturation protein, CD269
MW:~40kDa (SDS-PAGE).
Source:Produced in HEK 293 cells. The extracellular domain of human BCMA (aa 2-54) is fused at the C-terminus to the Fc portion of human IgG1.
UniProt ID:Q02223
Concentration: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.).
Species reactivity:Human, Mouse
Specificity:Binds human and mouse BAFF and APRIL.
Applications:ELISA, Flow Cytometry
Application Notes:ELISA: binds to mouse BAFF).
Flow Cytometry: Detection of membrane-bound mouse BAFF and human APRIL in combination with fluorescently labelled Ab to IgG1.
Reconstitution:Reconstitute with 50µl of 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 shows that it blocks the binding of BAFF and APRIL to their receptors BCMA and TACI, inhibiting BAFF- and APRIL-mediated B cell activation.
Regulatory Status:RUO - Research Use Only

BCMA (human):Fc (human), (recombinant) Flow Cytometry
Figure: Flow cytometric profile of 293 cells stably transfected with a BAFF-expression plasmid (2). Control (1) are untransfected 293 cells. Optimal concentration range is 0.5-5 µg/ml.Method: 293 cells (5 x 105) expressing surface BAFF vector were incubated on ice for 30 min in 50 µl FACS buffer (PBS, 5% Fetal calf serum, 0.02% azide) containing 4µg/ml of BCMA:Fc. After washing in FACS buffer, PE-conjugated antibody to human IgG (SBA) was added and cells were analyzed by flow cytometry.
