CD30 ligand (CD30L) is a type-II membrane-associated glycoprotein protein belonging to the TNF superfamily and is expressed primarily on certain B cells, T cells, and monocytes. CD30L binds specifically to CD30 (receptor), which is expressed on activated, but not resting, B and T cells, in lymphomas and various chronically inflamed tissues. CD30L/CD30 interactions initiate a signaling cascade that can ultimately lead to the activation of NF-KappaB. CD30L/CD30 signaling exerts pleiotropic effects on normal cells, including cell death, differentiation, or cell division. Certain diseases, including Hodgkins's lymphoma, allergic inflammation, diabetes (in NOD mice), and mycobacterial infection can also be affected by CD30L/CD30 signaling. The CD30L gene encodes for a 234 amino acid type II transmembrane protein, which contains a 37 amino acid cytoplasmic sequence, a 25 amino acid transmembrane domain and a 172 amino acid extracellular domain. Recombinant human soluble CD30L (sCD30L) is a 188 amino acid polypeptide corresponding to the extracellular domain, and contains an 8 residue N-terminal His -Tag.
Human TNFSF8 expressed in CHO cells
CAT# CSC-CTK0318-50 (50 μg); CAT# CSC-CTK0318-250 (250 μg)
Greater than 95% as determined by SDS-PAGE and HPLC analyses.
Determined by its ability to stimulate human IL-8 production by human PBMC using a concentration range of 10.0-25.0 ng/ml. Note: Results may vary with PBMC donors.
Less than 1 EU/μg.
Sterile filtered through a 0.2 micron filter and lyophilized from 1x PBS.
Please centrifuge product briefly before opening vial. The lyophilized protein should be reconstituted in sterile, ultra-pure water to a concentration of 0.1 - 1.0 mg/ml. This solution can then be diluted into other aqueous buffers and stored at -20°C for future use.
Storage & Stability
The lyophilized protein, though stable at room temperature for up to 3 weeks, is best stored dessicated at -20°C. Reconstituted protein should be used immediately or stored long-term in undiluted working aliquots at –20°C. For long term storage, it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). Avoid repeated freeze / thaw cycles.
