Technical Data
sRANKL (soluble RANK Ligand, Receptor Activator of NFkB Ligand)
The receptor activator of NF-kappaB ligand (RANK-L) is a recently discovered member of the TNF-ligand family involved in the regulation of the T-cell-dependent immune response, lymph node organogenesis and bone formation (1,2). RANK-L exists as both a normal, transmembrane form and a truncated, soluble form (sRANK-L), both of which can stimulate the receptor.

Suitable for use in Western Blot. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Western Blot: 0.25–0.5ug/ml
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Positive Control:
Rat liver tissue lysate

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4°C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, add sterile glycerol (40-50%), aliquot and store at -20°C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20°C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
