Description: This 4B4 (4B4-1) monoclonal antibody reacts with human CD137 (also known as 4-1BB or TNFRSF9), which is an inducible member of the TNFR family of costimulatory molecules expressed on T cells, natural killer cells, dendritic cells, granulocytes, and mast cells. Involved in recruiting TNFR-associated factors (TRAF) 1 and 2, CD137 signaling plays a role in T cell activation, maintaining the survival of activated and CD8 memory T cells, as well as suppressing myelopoiesis and dendritic cell development. Stimulation of this receptor has also been shown to promote expansion of CD4+CD25+ T regulatory cells ex vivo. The ligand for CD137, 4-1BBL, is found on activated macrophages, mature B cells, hematopoietic stem cells, and myeloid progenitor cells. Applications Reported: This 4B4 (4B4-1) antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis. Applications Tested: This 4B4 (4B4-1) antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by flow cytometric analysis of stimulated normal human peripheral blood cells. This can be used at 5 µL (0.5 µg) per test. A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 105 to 108 cells/test. Super Bright 436 can be excited with the violet laser line (405 nm) and emits at 436 nm. We recommend using a 450/50 bandpass filter, or equivalent.Please make sure that your instrument is capable of detecting this fluorochrome. When using two or more Super Bright dye-conjugated antibodies in a staining panel, it is recommended to use Super Bright Staining Buffer (cat. SB-4400) to minimize any non-specific polymer interactions. Please refer to the datasheet for Super Bright Staining Buffer for more information. Excitation: 405 nm; Emission: 436 nm; Laser: Violet Laser The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the TNF-receptor superfamily. This receptor contributes to the clonal expansion, survival, and development of T cells. It can also induce proliferation in peripheral monocytes, enhance T cell apoptosis induced by TCR/CD3 triggered activation, and regulate CD28 co-stimulation to promote Th1 cell responses. The expression of this receptor is induced by lymphocyte activation. TRAF adaptor proteins have been shown to bind to this receptor and transduce the signals leading to activation of NF-kappaB.
