Flow cytometry analysis of CD137 in PBMC cells stimulated with PHA for 3 days (green) compared to an isotype control (blue). Human blood was collected, combined with a hydrophilic polysaccharide, centrifuged, transferred to a conical tube and washed with PBS. 50 ul of cell solution was added to each tube at a dilution of 2x10^7 cells/ml, followed by the addition of 50 ul of isotype control and primary antibody (Product # MA5-13739) at a dilution of 1 ug/test. Cells were incubated for 30 min at 4°C and washed with a cell buffer, followed by incubation with a DyLight 488-conjugated secondary antibody for 30 min at 4°C in the dark. FACS analysis was performed using 400 ul of cell buffer.

MA5-13739 targets CD137 in FACS and IF applications and shows reactivity with Human samples.
The MA5-13739 immunogen is ectodomain of human 4-1BB recombinant protein.
4-1BB (also known as CD137) is an inducible receptor-like protein expressed on the cell surface of activated splenic T cells and thymocytes. It exists as both a monomer and a dimer on the surface of activated T cells. 4-1BB is structurally related to the members of NGFR/TNFR superfamily which are characterized by the presence of three-six patterns of a cysteine-rich motif in their extracellular domains. Other members of this family include low affinity NGFR, two receptors for TNF (TNFR-I and TNFR-II), CD30, CD40, OX40, Fas, and CD27. These molecules are involved in cell growth, survival, and death processes. The cytoplasmic domain of 4-1BB include two runs of acidic amino acids, a potential p56lck binding site, five consecutive glycines at the C-terminus, and four potential phosphorylation sites: one tyrosine, two threonine, and one serine.
