Description: The monoclonal antibody reacts with human AITR, Activation Inducible TNFR family member, an approximately 25 kDa member of the TNFR superfamily. AITR mRNA is detected in lymph node, peripheral blood leukocytes and weakly in spleen. AITR mRNA expression was upregulated within 24 hour on PMA/ionomycin or PHA stimulated PBMC. At the protein level, AITR is expressed by a small population of activated PBMC. AITR associates with TRAF1, TRAF2 and TRAF3 and induces nuclear factor NF-kappaB activation via TRAF2. Recently TL6 (AITRL) has been reported as the ligand for AITR. Interaction of AITR with AITRL is important for cross-talk between T lymphocytes and endothelial cells.
Applications Reported: This eBioAITR antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This eBioAITR antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by flow cytometric analysis of stimulated human peripheral blood mononuclear cells. This can be used at 5 µL (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.
Excitation: 488-561 nm; Emission: 578 nm; Laser: Blue Laser, Green Laser, Yellow-Green Laser.
Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered.
Glucocorticoid-induced tumor necrosis factor receptor family-related gene (GITR) is a member of the tumor necrosis factor receptor (TNFR) family that is expressed at low levels on unstimulated T cells, B cells, and macrophages. Upon activation, CD4+ and CD8+ T cells up-regulate GITR expression, whereas immunoregulatory T cells constitutively express high levels of GITR.
