CD137 is an inducible T cell surface protein belonging to the TNF receptor superfamily. The 255aa human CD137 is a type I transmembrane protein having in its extracellular domain four of the cysteine-rich motifs that are characteristic of the TNF receptor superfamily. The 30kD glycoprotein exists both as a monomer and as a dimer on T cells. The human and mouse proteins share 60% aa identity. CD137 is absent from naive T cells, but it is upregulated and continually expressed following T cell activation. The natural ligand, CD137L, is a member of the TNF superfamily and is expressed on activated antigen presenting cells including dendritic cells, macrophages, and B cells. Cross-linking of CD137 by CD137L or by agonistic antibodies transmits a potent co-stimulatory signal that enhances the effect of other activating signals such as PHA or anti-CD3 antibodies. CD137 signals through the TFAF2-NIK pathway resulting in activation of NF-kappaB and ultimately promoting proliferation and survival of T cells.
Applications:
Suitable for use in Flow Cytometry, ELISA, Western Blot, Immunocytochemistry and Co-stimulation of T cells. Other applications not tested.
Recommended Dilutions:
Flow Cytometry: 25ug/ml. 10ul of diluted C2548-40E labels 1-2.5x10e5 cells in a total reaction volume 200ul. Validated using PHA-treated T cells.
ELISA: 0.2-0.8ug/ml as a capture antibody in a sandwich ELISA in combination with biotinylated human CD137 detection antibody (C2548-40F) and recombinant human CD137 as the standard.
Western Blot: 0.1- 0.2ug/ml. The detection limit for recombinant human CD137 is ~0.2ng/lane and 0.5ng/lane under non-reducing and reducing conditions, respectively.
Immunocytochemistry: 2-15ug/ml will detect CD137 in cells.
Co-stimulation of T cells: 5-20ug/ml stimulates IFN-gamma production of human T cells in the presence of 10ug/ml of monoclonal anti-human CD3.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
