Description: The 24-31 monoclonal antibody reacts with human CD154, a 39 kDa transmembrane glycoprotein also known as gp39 and CD40 ligand (CD40L). CD154 is a member of the TNF superfamily and is expressed transiently by activated T cells. Through its binding to CD40 on antigen presenting cells including B cells, monocytes/macrophages and dendritic cells, CD154 serves a crucial function in T-APC cognate interaction. CD154 interaction with CD40 transduces signals for T-dependent B-cell activation and induces B cell cycle entry. 24-31 cross-reacts with the cynomolgus monkey CD154. Applications Reported: 24-31 has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis. 24-31 has also been reported to block CD154 binding to CD40 and inhibit T cell-dependent B cell differentiation and antibody response in vitro . (Please use Functional Grade Purified 24-31, cat. 16-1548, in functional assays.). Applications Tested: The 24-31 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of resting and activated human normal human peripheral blood cells. This can be used at less than or equal to 1 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 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.Purity: Greater than 90%, as determined by SDS-PAGE. Aggregation: Less than 10%, as determined by HPLC. Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered. CD40 Ligand (CD40-L), or CD154, is a membrane glycoprotein and differentiation antigen expressed on the surface of T cells. The CD40 Ligand stimulates B cell proliferation and secretion of all immunoglobulin isotypes in the presence of cytokines. CD40 Ligand has been shown to induce cytokine production and tumoricidal activity in peripheral blood monocytes. It also co-stimulates proliferation of activated T cells and this is accompanied by the production of IFN-gamma, TNF-alpha, and IL-2.
