|Specificity:||The mouse monoclonal antibody H398 recognizes the extracellular domain of CD120a, a 55 kDa receptor for tumor necrosis factor. The antibody blocks biological activity of both natural and recombinant human TNF alpha and TNF beta.|
|Immunogen:||Recombinant full length human CD120a|
|Preparation:||The purified antibody is conjugated with R-Phycoerythrin (PE) under optimum conditions. The conjugate is purified by size-exclusion chromatography and adjusted for direct use. No reconstitution is necessary.|
|Storage Buffer:||The reagent is provided in stabilizing phosphate buffered saline (PBS) solution containing 15mM sodium azide.|
|Storage / Stability:||Store in the dark at 2-8░C. Do not freeze. Avoid prolonged exposure to light. Do not use after expiration date stamped on vial label.|
|Usage:||The reagent is designed for Flow Cytometry analysis of human blood cells using 10 μl reagent / 100 μl of whole blood or 106 cells in a suspension.
The content of a vial (1 ml) is sufficient for 100 tests.
|Expiration:||See vial label|
|Lot Number:||See vial label|
|Background:||CD120a / TNF R1, also known as TNFR55 or TNFRSF1A, is a 55 kDa receptor for tumor necrosis factor alpha and it is expressed in most tissues. By binding its trimeric ligand the CD120a protein forms trimers and the conformation change leads to dissociation of the inhibitory factor SODD from its intracellular death domain and in formation of signaling platform. CD120a can mediate apoptosis, and function as a regulator of inflammation. Germline mutations of the extracellular domains of this receptor were found to be associated with the autosomal dominant periodic fever syndrome. The impaired receptor clearance is thought to be a mechanism of the disease.|
