Specifications

HVEM belongs to the TNF Receptor superfamily of transmembrane proteins and plays a role in the activation of T-cells and other lymphocytes. It is expressed in various cells and tissues including spleen, thymus, lung, macrophages, and T-cells. HVEM activation induces a signaling cascade which results in induction of transcription factors NF-kappaB and AP-1. LIGHT (TNFSF14) and TNF-beta (TNFSF1) function as the ligands for HVEM, which can also bind specifically to herpes simplex virus glycoprotein D. Soluble HVEM can act as a receptor decoy resulting in inhibition of the activity of the HVEM ligands, LIGHT and TNF-beta. Recombinant human HVEM-Fc Chimera is a 376 amino acid fusion protein containing an N-terminal domain corresponding to the extracellular region of HVEM and a C-terminal domain corresponding to residues 102 to 330 of human IgG1.
Catalog #143363
Biological ActivityDetermined by its ability to neutralize 0.25ng/ml of hTNFbeta; induced cytotoxicity on murine L929 cells. The expected ED50 for this effect is 1.3-1.9ug/ml of HVEM-Fc.

Quality ControlVerified by N-terminal and Mass Spectrometry analyses (when applicable).
Endotoxin<0.1ng/ug of protein (<1EU/ug).
Protein ContentVerified by UV Spectroscopy and/or SDS-PAGE gel.
Storage and StabilityStore lyophilized products at -20°C. For reconstituted solutions of most products, we recommend short-term storage at 4°C. For longer term storage the protein solution should be stored with a carrier protein (eg. 0.1% BSA) in working aliquots and stored frozen at -20°C. Additional freeze/thaw cycles may cause some denaturation of the protein.
