Human 4-1BB Ligand (4-1BBL) is a member of the emerging family of Ligands with structural homology to Tumor Necrosis Factor. Recombinant human 4-1BBL is a 19.5 kDa protein consisting of 185 amino acid residues.

Molecular Mass 19.5 kDa
Source E. coli
Specific Activity 10⁵ IU/mg
Biological Activity Determined by the dose-dependent stimulation of IL-8 production by human PBMC. The ED₅₀ for this effect is less than 10 ng/ml. The specific activity is 10⁵ U/mg.
Formulation Sterile-filtered, white, lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder. Lyophilized from a 5 mM Tris/75 mM NaCl (pH 8.0) solution.
Reconstitution Please Note: Always 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.
Purity Greater than 98% (determined by SDS-PAGE and HPLC analysis).
Endotoxin Level < 0.1 ng per µg of rHu 4-1BBL (1EU/µg).
Stability & Storage The lyophilized protein, though stable at room temperature for up to 3 weeks, is best stored desiccated at -20°C. It 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% endotoxin-free HSA or BSA; e.g. Cat.No. C-69500A). Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
