Anti-TSLP is an IgG fraction antibody purified from monospecific antiserum by a multi-step process which includes delipidation, salt fractionation and ion exchange chromatography followed by extensive dialysis against the buffer stated above. This antibody is specific for human TSLP protein. A BLAST analysis was used to suggest cross-reactivity with TSLP from human sources based on 100% homology with the immunizing sequence. Assay by immunoelectrophoresis resulted in a single precipitin arc against anti-Biotin and anti-Rabbit Serum. Cross-reactivity with TSLP from other sources has not been determined.
TSLP is a 159 amino acid four helix-bundle hemopoietic cytokine that signals through a heterodimeric receptor complex consisting of the human TSLP receptor and the IL-7R alpha-chain. It impacts myeloid cells and induces the release of T cell-attracting chemokines from monocytes, enhances the maturation of CD11c (+) dendritic cells, naive CD4 (+), and CD8 (+) T cells into proallergic effectors, and primes dendritic cells to produce large amounts of IL-12 after CD40 ligand stimulation. TSLP influences the regulation of the positive selection of regulatory T cells and maintenance of peripheral CD4 (+) T cell homeostasis. It induces allergic inflammation by directly activating mast cells and may be involved in the pathophysiology of inflammatory arthritis. It is expressed in heart, liver and prostate.
