DATA SHEET:recombinant HUMAN soluble CD40Ligand/TRAP

Description: CD40 ligand (CD40L/TRAP) is a type II membrane protein which effectuates the helper function of T cells on resting B cells. Binding of CD40L to its receptor , CD40, on B cells indices B cell proliferation, adhesion and class switching. This recombinant human soluble CD40 Ligand (sCD40L/TRAp) is a 16.3 kda protein containing 149 amino acid residues comprising the receptor binding TNF-Like domain of CD40L.

Catalog#: RDI-3102

Package Size: 50 micrograms $231.00    $219.00/package 2+

                        Mini-Pack: cat#RDI-3102p $94.00/10ug

                        -see bulk below

Supplied: Sterile filtered & lyophilized from 10mM Na phosphate pH 7.5.

Source: E. Coli

Purity: >98% by SDS-Page and HPLC analysis Endotoxin level is less than 0.1ng per ug (1EU/ug) of sCD40L/TRAP.

Reconstitution: The lyophilized sCD40L is soluble in most aqueous buffers. The lyophilized protein should be reconstituted in sterile DI water or 5-10mM sodium phophate pH7.5 to a maximum concentration of 1mg/ml. Allow to set at least 30 minutes at 4 DEG C, tighten cap and rotate to reconstitute any material on sides of vial. If desired, you can centrifuge at 1000 rpm for 1 minute to concentrate volume in bottom of vial. This solution can be diluted into other buffered solutions containing carrier protein or medium and stored at 4 DEG C for up to 1 week or at -20 DEG C for future use.
Note:If this material is not to be used for coating or labeling (or other applications requiring carrier free material), the addition of 0.1% BSA to dilution buffers or dilution in sterile culture media is recommended to enhance stability and minimize absorption to vial. Ideally, maintain stock >10ug/ml.

Storage: The lyophilized powder is stable for a few weeks at room temperature but it is best stored desiccated at -20 DEG C. Reconstituted sCD40L should be stored in working aliquots at -20DEG C. AVOID FREQUENT FREEZE THAW CYCLES.


Assay#1: Determined by the stimulation of IL-12 inducation of human PBMC's

Assay#2:The biological activity of this sCD40L/TRAP was determined by the stimulation of IL-8 prodcution by human peripheral blood mononuclear cells. The expected ED50 for this effect is 5-10ng/ml. Note:Results will vary wth PBMC donors.

RDI-3102-245S              $212.00/50ug

Description: Recombinant Human sCD40L is produced in E.Coli as a non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 149 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 16,308 Dalton. rHusCD40L is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Source: E.Coli

Appearance: Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder from 10mM Sodium Phosphate pH7.5

Endotoxin: Less than 0.1 ng/µg (1EU/µg) of rHusCD40L.

Formulation: Lyophilized from a sterile concentrated solution (1mg/ml) with 10mM Sodium Phosphate pH=7.5.

Purity: Greater than 98.0% as determined by:

            (a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.

             (b) Anion-exchange FPLC.

             (c) Analysis by reducing and non-reducing SDS-PAGE Silver Stained gel.

Amino acid sequence: The sequence of the first five N-terminal amino acids was determined and was found to be Met-Gln-Lys-Gly-Asp.

Dimers and aggregates: Less than 1% as determined by silver-stained SDS-PAGE gel analysis.

Solubility: It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized rHusCD40L in sterile 18M-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.

Stability: Lyophilized rHusCD40L although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18 C. Upon reconstitution rHusCD40L should be stored at 4 C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18 C. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.

BiologicalActivity: rHusCD40L is fully biologically active when compared to standard. The ED50, as determined by the dose-dependent stimulation of IL-12 & IL-8 induction by PMB (peripheral Mononuclear) cells was found to be 10-100ng/ml.

Protein content: Protein quantitation was carried out by two independent methods:

1. UV spectroscopy at 280 nm using the absorbency value of 1.1 as the extinction coefficient for a 0.1% (1mg/ml) solution. This value is calculated by the PC GENE computer analysis program of protein sequences (IntelliGenetics).

2. Analysis by RP-HPLC, using a standard solution of sCD40L as a Reference Standard.

Precautions: For In vitro research for use in or on humans or animals or for diagnostics.

Recombinant Human CD154-muCD8 (CD-40 Ligand-muCD8) fusion Protein

Background: Human CD154 (CD40 Ligand) is a member of the tumor necrosis factor family and is expressed on the surface of activated T cells. Interaction of CD154 and CD40 is essential for isotype switching in B cells. Known genetic defects that alter this interaction lead to impaired immune system function. CD154 has been shown to be hyperexpressed by B and T cells in SLE patients. CD154 has been reported to be expressed on vascular endothelial cells, smooth muscle cells and macrophages indicating a possible role for the CD40-CD154 immunoregulatory signaling mechanism during inflammation and immunity in artherogenesis.

Protocol: Brifely, 500K cultured Raji cells per tube were washed and incubated 45 minutes in ice with 80ul of CD154-muCD8 at a 5ug/ml concentration. Cells were washed two times and incubated with 50ul of secondary reagent anti-mouse CD8-PE (cat#RDI-MCD8A-53PE $406.00/120T after which they were washed three times, fixed and analyzed by FACS. Cells stained positive with a mean shift of 1.71log10 fluorescent units when compared to a buffer control. Binding was blocked when reagent was preincubated 30 minutes with anti-CD154 (clone 24-31)at a concentartion of 50ug/ml.
