|Application ||WB, ICC, E|
|Other Accession||NP_006564, 5730097|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||31 kDa|
|Application Notes||BAFF antibody can be used for detection of BAFF by Western blot a 1 µg/mL. Antibody can also be used for immunocytochemistry starting at 1 µg/mL.|
|Other Names||BAFF Antibody: DTL, BAFF, BLYS, CD257, TALL1, THANK, ZTNF4, TALL-1, TNFSF20, UNQ401/PRO738, Tumor necrosis factor ligand superfamily member 13B, B lymphocyte stimulator, tumor necrosis factor (ligand) superfamily, member 13b|
|Reconstitution & Storage||BAFF antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year. As with all antibodies care should be taken to avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. Antibodies should not be exposed to prolonged high temperatures.|
|Precautions||BAFF Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||BAFF, BLYS, TALL1, TNFSF20, ZTNF4|
|Function||Cytokine that binds to TNFRSF13B/TACI and TNFRSF17/BCMA. TNFSF13/APRIL binds to the same 2 receptors. Together, they form a 2 ligands -2 receptors pathway involved in the stimulation of B- and T-cell function and the regulation of humoral immunity. A third B-cell specific BAFF-receptor (BAFFR/BR3) promotes the survival of mature B-cells and the B-cell response.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Abundantly expressed in peripheral blood Leukocytes and is specifically expressed in monocytes and macrophages. Also found in the spleen, lymph node, bone marrow, T- cells and dendritic cells. A lower expression seen in placenta, heart, lung, fetal liver, thymus, and pancreas. Isoform 2 is expressed in many myeloid cell lines|

BAFF Antibody: Members in the TNF superfamily regulate immune responses and induce apoptosis. A novel member in the TNF family was recently identified by several groups and designated BAFF (for B cell Activating Factor belonging to the TNF Family), BLyS (for B Lymphocyte Stimulator), TALL-1 (for TNF- and ApoL-related Leukocyte-expressed Ligand), and THANK (for TNF Homologue that Activate Apoptosis, NF-κB and c-jun N-terminal Kinase). BAFF/BLyS was characterized as a B cell activator since it induced B cell proliferation and immunoglobulin secretion. Three receptors for BAFF were recently identified and designated TACI, BCMA and BAFF-R. BAFF and its receptors are essential for B cell development, survival, and humoral immune responses. BAFF is involved in the development of autoimmune diseases including systemic lupus erythaematosus and rheumatoid arthritis.
