Mouse splenocytes were stimulated for 4 days with F(ab')2 Anti-Mouse IgM, u chain specific and Anti-Mouse CD40 Functional Grade Purifieds (Product # 16-5092 and 16-0401). Cells were stained with 0.25 µg of Rat IgG2b K Isotype Control PE (Product # 12-4031) (blue histogram) or 0.25 µg of Anti-Mouse CD252 (OX40 Ligand) PE (purple histogram). Total viable cells, as determined by Fixable Viability Dye eFluor® 506 (Product # 65-0866), were used for analysis.

Description: The RM134L monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse CD252 also known as OX-40 Ligand, a member of the TNF superfamily. OX-40L is induced on mouse splenic B cells stimulated with a combination of anti-IgM and anti-CD40. Neither resting nor activated mouse T cells express OX-40L. The interaction of OX-40 (CD134) with OX-40L has been implicated in T cell-dependent humoral response. RM134L inhibits the costimulatory activity of mouse OX-40L transfected cells for anti-CD3-stimulated T cell proliferation.
Applications Reported: This RM134L antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: The RM134L antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of activated mouse splenocytes and can be used at less than or equal to 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. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.

The tumor necrosis factor superfamily member TNFSF4 is a type II membrane bound, non-covalently linked homotrimeric protein. It is expressed on antigen presenting cells, such as dendritic cells and activated B-cells, and also on other cells such as vascular endothelial cells, mast cells, and natural killer cells. TNFSF4 signals specifically through the TNFRSF4 receptor, is expressed predominantly on CD4+T cells but also on certain activated CD8+T cells. TNFRSF4/TNFSF4 functions as a costimulatory signal, which is required for a productive interaction between antigen presenting cells and their target T-cells. It enhances cell proliferation and survival, and increases expression of RANTES, IL-2, IL-3, and IFNgamma. TNFRSF4/TNFSF4 signaling plays an important role in immunotolerance.
