Technical Data
4-1BB LIGAND, (TNFSF9, 4-1BBL, 4-1BB-L, Tumor necrosis factor ligand superfamily member 9), Recombinant Human
Molecular Biology Storage: -20CShipping: Blue Ice
4-1BB Ligand (4-1BBL/TNFSF9) is preferentially expressed by B cells, and is a ligand for CD137 (4-1BB ligand receptor/TNFRSF9). Interaction between 4-1BBL and its receptor acts as a co-stimulatory signal for T cell activation and expansion, and is involved in the generation of cytotoxic T cells and in the process of antigen presentation. Expression of 4-1BBL by a variety of carcinoma cells, suggests a role for 4-1BBL in tumor cell-T cell interactions.

Purified recombinant 4-1BBL expressed in E.coli

Determined by the dose-dependent stimulation of IL-8 production by human PBMC. The ED50 for this effect is 5-10 ng/ml. Please note: Results may vary with PBMC donors.

Suitable for use in Functional Assays. Other applications not tested.
