|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||B-cell receptor specific for TNFSF13B/TALL1/BAFF/BLyS. Promotes the survival of mature B-cells and the B-cell response.|
|Cellular Location||Membrane; Single-pass type III membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Highly expressed in spleen and lymph node, and in resting B-cells. Detected at lower levels in activated B-cells, resting CD4+ T-cells, in thymus and peripheral blood leukocytes|

B cell-activating factor (BAFF) enhances B-cell survivalin vitro and is a regulator of the peripheral B-cell population.Overexpression of Baff in mice results in mature B-cell hyperplasiaand symptoms of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Also, some SLEpatients have increased levels of BAFF in serum. Therefore, it hasbeen proposed that abnormally high levels of BAFF may contribute tothe pathogenesis of autoimmune diseases by enhancing the survivalof autoreactive B cells. The protein encoded by this gene is areceptor for BAFF and is a type III transmembrane proteincontaining a single extracellular cysteine-rich domain. It isthought that this receptor is the principal receptor required forBAFF-mediated mature B-cell survival.
