Description: The ACT35 monoclonal antibody reacts with human CD134, also known as OX-40. A member of the TNF receptor superfamily, CD134/OX-40 is a 50 kDa type I membrane glycoprotein expressed by activated T lymphocytes. The interaction of CD134 with OX-40L has been implicated in T cell-dependent humoral response, regulation of primary T cell expansion, survival of T cells, size of the memory T cell pool and regulation of tolerance in the CD4^+ T cell compartment.
Applications Reported: This ACT35 (ACT-35) antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis, immunohistology staining of frozen tissue sections, and immunohistology staining of paraffin embedded tissue sections.
Applications Tested: The ACT35 (ACT-35) antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of 3-day PHA activated human normal human peripheral blood cells. This can be used at less than or equal to 1 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. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.
Purity: Greater than 90%, as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Aggregation: Less than 10%, as determined by HPLC.
Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered.
Tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily, member4, also known as ACT35 or CD134 is a cell surface glycoprotein that was discovered through the production of a monoclonal antibody raised against the HUT-102 cell line. It belongs to the tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily. CD134 was mapped to 1p36 by fluorescence in situ hybridization. CD134 is the primary receptor for feline immunodeficiency virus. CD134 expression can promote viral binding and renders cells permissive for viral entry, productive infection, and syncytium formation. Stimulating the receptor can improve the response to a powerful virus vector and may be useful in vaccine development.
