CD40 Mouse anti-Human, APC-eFluor 780, Clone: 5C3, eBioscience
Mouse Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: LIFE TECHNOLOGIES 47040942
Description: The 5C3 monoclonal antibody reacts with human CD40, a 45-50 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein. CD40 is a member of the TNFR family and is expressed by B lymphocytes, follicular dendritic cells, thymic epithelium, and a subset of peripheral T cells. CD40 regulates B cell development and maturation by inducing Ig isotype-switching and in combination with other signals such as IL-4, protects B cells from surface Ig-induced apoptosis and promotes proliferation. Interaction of CD40 with CD154 (gp39), its ligand on T cells, is important in T-B cell crosstalk and plays a role in costimulation and immune regulation. 5C3 is reported to be used for activation of B cells in in vitro functional assays. Applications Reported: This 5C3 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis. Applications Tested: This 5C3 antibody has been pre-diluted and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells. This may be used at 5 µL (0.125 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. APC-eFluor 780 emits at 780 nm and is excited with the Red laser (633-647 nm). Please make sure that your instrument is capable of detecting this fluorochrome. Light sensitivity: This tandem dye is sensitive to photo-induced oxidation.Please protect this vial and stained samples from light. Fixation: Samples can be stored in IC Fixation Buffer (Product No. 00-8222-49) (100 µL of cell sample + 100 µL of IC Fixation Buffer) or 1-step Fix/Lyse Solution (Product No. 00-5333-57) for up to 3 days in the dark at 4°C with minimal impact on brightness and FRET efficiency/compensation. Some generalizations regarding fluorophore performance after fixation can be made, but clone specific performance should be determined empirically. Excitation: 633-647 nm; Emission: 780 nm; Laser: Red Laser The CD40 antigen is a single chain glycoprotein that is known to be a member of the tumor necrosis factor/nerve growth factor superfamily and shows a significant homology to the Hodgkin ft.s disease associated antigen, CD30. CD40 is present on all B cells except plasma cells and is also found on some epithelial cells, carcinomas and lymphoid dendritic cells. CD40 has been found to be essential in mediating a broad variety of immune and inflammatory responses including T cell-dependent immunoglobulin class switching, memory B cell development, and germinal center formation. AT-hook transcription factor AKNA is reported to coordinately regulate the expression of CD40, which may be important for homotypic cell interactions. Adaptor protein TNFR2 interacts with CD40 and serves as a mediator of the signal transduction. The interaction of CD40 and its ligand is found to be necessary for amyloid-beta-induced microglial activation, and thus is thought to be an early event in Alzheimer disease pathogenesis. Two alternatively spliced transcript variants of CD40 encoding distinct isoforms have been reported. Diseases associated with CD40 dysfunction include Type 3 Hyper-Igm immunodeficiency and CD40 ligand deficiency.
