CD137 (4-1BB) Syrian Hamster anti-Mouse, eFluor® 450, Clone: 17B5, eBioscience™
Syrian Hamster Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: Life Technologies LS48137182
Description: The 17B5 monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse CD137, also known as 4-1BB, a member of the TNFR superfamily. CD137 is expressed as monomers, dimers, and tetramers on the surface of activated T cells around day 4-6 after activation through the TCR complex. Interaction of CD137 with its ligand, 4-1BBL, is reported to deliver a costimulatory signal important in the T-APC interaction. Recent data suggests CD317 is expressed on Tregs and may play a role in their proliferation. The monoclonal antibody 17B5 has strong antagonistic effect in in vitro functional assays. Applications Reported: This 17B5 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis. Applications Tested: This 17B5 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of stimulated mouse splenocytes. This can be used at less than or equal to 0.5 µg per test. A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest. eFluor® 450 is an alternative to Pacific Blue®. eFluor® 450 emits at 445 nm and is excited with the Violet laser (405 nm). Please make sure that your instrument is capable of detecting this fluorochome. Excitation: 405 nm; Emission: 445 nm; Laser: Violet Laser.Filtration: 0.2 μm post-manufacturing filtered. The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the TNF-receptor superfamily. This receptor contributes to the clonal expansion, survival, and development of T cells. It can also induce proliferation in peripheral monocytes, enhance T cell apoptosis induced by TCR/CD3 triggered activation, and regulate CD28 co-stimulation to promote Th1 cell responses. The expression of this receptor is induced by lymphocyte activation. TRAF adaptor proteins have been shown to bind to this receptor and transduce the signals leading to activation of NF-kappaB.
