Recombinant Human CD40 Ligand (with HSA)

CD40 ligand, CD40L (also known as CD154, TRAP or gp39), is a type II transmembrane glycoprotein belonging to the TNF family.

CD40L is predominantly expressed on activated CD4+ T lymphocytes and interacts with CD40 on antigen-presenting cells to regulate both humoral and cellular immune responses.

Recombinant human CD40L (rhCD40L) is a 149 amino acid, non-glycosylated protein. The approximate molecular mass of CD40L is 16.3 kDa. CD40L is produced in Escherichia coli.

rhCD40L is used to induce its cognate signalling pathway in HEK-Blue™ CD40L cells.


Detection by SDS-PAGE
Detection by SDS-PAGE

SDS PAGE of the recombinant human (h)CD40L protein. 1.5 μg of hCD40L was loaded on a 12% Mini-PROTEAN® TGX StainFree™ Precast Gel (Bio-Rad). Detection was performed as per the manufacturer’s instructions. A band was detected at ~16 kDa.

Dose-response in HEK-Blue™ CD40 cells to recombinant hCD40L cytokine
Dose-response in HEK-Blue™ CD40 cells to recombinant hCD40L cytokine

Dose-response in HEK-Blue™ CD40 cells to recombinant hCD40L protein. Cells were stimulated with increasing concentrations of recombinant human (h)CD40L. After overnight incubation, the NF-κB-induced SEAP activity was determined using QUANTI-Blue™, a SEAP detection reagent. Data are shown as optical density (OD) at 650 nm (mean ± SEM).
