|Application ||WB, IHC-P, FC, E|
|Calculated MW||29274 Da|
|Antigen Region||181-207 aa|
|Other Names||CD40 ligand, CD40-L, T-cell antigen Gp39, TNF-related activation protein, TRAP, Tumor necrosis factor ligand superfamily member 5, CD154, CD40 ligand, membrane form, CD40 ligand, soluble form, CD40LG, CD40L, TNFSF5, TRAP|
|Target/Specificity||This TRAP antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 181-207 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human TRAP.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is prepared by Saturated Ammonium Sulfate (SAS) precipitation followed by dialysis against PBS.|
|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||TRAP Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||CD40L, TNFSF5, TRAP|
|Function||Cytokine that binds to CD40/TNFRSF5 (PubMed:1280226). Costimulates T-cell proliferation and cytokine production. Its cross-linking on T-cells generates a costimulatory signal which enhances the production of IL4 and IL10 in conjunction with the TCR/CD3 ligation and CD28 costimulation (PubMed:8617933). Induces the activation of NF-kappa-B and kinases MAPK8 and PAK2 in T- cells. Induces tyrosine phosphorylation of isoform 3 of CD28 (PubMed:15067037). Mediates B-cell proliferation in the absence of co-stimulus as well as IgE production in the presence of IL4. Involved in immunoglobulin class switching (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein Cell surface|
|Tissue Location||Specifically expressed on activated CD4+ T- lymphocytes|

TRAP is expressed on the surface of T cells. It regulates B cell function by engaging CD40 on the B cell surface. A defect in its gene results in an inability to undergo immunoglobulin class switch and is associated with hyper-IgM syndrome.
