Scientific Background:BCMA (B cell maturation) is a nonglycosylated integral membrane type I protein that is preferentially expressed in mature B lymphocytes and belongs structurally to the TNF receptor family. BCMA associates with BAFF, APRIL, TNF receptor-associated factor (TRAF) 1, TRAF2, and TRAF3 and activates NF-κB, Elk-1, c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK), and p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase. BCMA plays an important role in B cell development, function and regulation.
Regulatory Status:RUO - Research Use Only
BCMA (human) monoclonal antibody (Vicky-1) image
Figure: Immunostaining of HEK 293 cells transfected with a human BCMA expression plasmid (left panel), or mock transfected (right panel). Method: 3 days after transfection of cells with the indicated constructs, cells were fixed with acetone or 4% formaldehyde for 5 min. at room temperature. Slides were blocked with normal IgG, and incubated for 1 hour with 5µg/ml MAb to BCMA (human) (Vicky-1) (Prod. No. ALX-804-151) in 1% BSA in 1x PBS. After washes in PBS, samples were incubated with the secondary antibody for 1 hour, washed in PBS and revealed with StreptABComplex/HRP (Vector) and AEC.

Figure: Detection of endogenous human BCMA with MAb to BCMA (human) (Vicky-1) (Prod. No. ALX-804-151).Method: U266 cells (2x105) were incubated on ice for 30 min. with 0.2µg of MAb to BCMA (human) (Vicky-1) or an isotype control in 25µl FACS buffer (PBS, 5% fetal calf serum, 0.02% azide). The primary antibody was revealed with PAb to Rat IgG (R-PE) and then analyzed by flow cytometry.
