MA1-25839 detects APRIL from human samples. MA1-25839 will not react with mouse.
MA1-25839 has been successfully used in Western blot procedures.
The MA1-25839 immunogen is a recombinant fragment corresponding to residues 93-233 of human APRIL, expressed in bacteria.
Members in the TNF superfamily regulate immune responses and induce apoptosis. A novel member in the TNF family was recently identified by several groups and designated APRIL (for A PRoliferation-Inducing Ligand), TALL2 (for TNF and ApoL-related Leukocyte-expressed Ligand 2), and TRDL 1a (for TNF related death ligand 1a) in human and mouse. Two receptors for APRIL were recently identified and designated TACI and BCMA. APRIL stimulates B and T cell proliferation, triggers humoral immune responses, activates NF-kB, and induces cell death. APRIL and its close relative of BlyS and their receptors BCMA and TACI are involved in diseases of autoimmunity and cancer.
