Name : 4-1BB R/TNFRSF9, Human

Product Concentration :

Background :
4-1BB(CD137) is a member of the tumor necrosis factor (TNF) receptor family. Mature human 4-1BB consists of a 163 amino acid extracellular domain (ECD) with four TNFR cysteine‑rich repeats, a 27 aa transmembrane segment, and a 42 aa cytoplasmic domain; 4-1BB (CD137) is expressed as a disulfide-linked homodimer on various populations of activated T cell including CD4+, CD8+, memory CD8+, NKT, and regulatory T cells as well as on myeloid and mast cell progenitors, dendritic cells, mast cells, and bacterially infected osteoblasts. It binds with high affinity to the transmembrane 4-1BB Ligand/TNFSF9 which is expressed on antigen presenting cells and myeloid progenitor cells. This interaction co-stimulates the proliferation, activation, and/or survival of the 4-1BB expressing cell. It can also enhance the activation-induced cell death of repetitively stimulated T cells.

Biological Activity :
Fully biologically active when compared to standard. The biological activity is determined by its inhibitory effect of IL-8 production using human peripheral blood mononuclear cells. About 90 % of inibition was seen using a concentration of 1.0 μg for both 4-1BB Ligand and 4-1BB Receptor.
