|Calculated MW||25390 Da|
|Antigen Region||199-227 aa|
|Other Names||Lymphotoxin-beta, LT-beta, Tumor necrosis factor C, TNF-C, Tumor necrosis factor ligand superfamily member 3, LTB, TNFC, TNFSF3|
|Target/Specificity||This LTB antibody is generated from mice immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 199-227 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human LTB.|
|Format||Mouse monoclonal antibody supplied in crude ascites with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||LTB Antibody (C-term)(Ascites) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Cytokine that binds to LTBR/TNFRSF3. May play a specific role in immune response regulation. Provides the membrane anchor for the attachment of the heterotrimeric complex to the cell surface. Isoform 2 is probably non-functional.|
|Cellular Location||Membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Spleen and thymus.|

Lymphotoxin beta is a type II membrane protein of the TNF family. It anchors lymphotoxin-alpha to the cell surface through heterotrimer formation. The predominant form on the lymphocyte surface is the lymphotoxin-alpha 1/beta 2 complex (e.g. 1 molecule alpha/2 molecules beta) and this complex is the primary ligand for the lymphotoxin-beta receptor. The minor complex is lymphotoxin-alpha 2/beta 1. LTB is an inducer of the inflammatory response system and involved in normal development of lymphoid tissue. Lymphotoxin-beta isoform b is unable to complex with lymphotoxin-alpha suggesting a function for lymphotoxin-beta which is independent of lympyhotoxin-alpha. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms.
