Recombinant Mouse CD40 Extracellular Domain
<0.1 EU/µg as determined by the LAL method
This monoclonal antibody has been 0.2 µm filtered and lyophilized from modified Dulbecco's phosphate buffered saline (1X PBS) pH 7.2 - 7.3 containing 5.0% w/v trehalose with no calcium, magnesium or preservatives present.
Storage and Handling
The lyophilized antibody can be stored desiccated at -20°C to -70°C for up to twelve months. The reconstituted antibody can be stored for at least four weeks at 2-8°C. For long-term storage of the reconstituted antibody, aseptically aliquot into working volumes and store at -20°C to -70°C in a manual defrost freezer. Avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. No detectable loss of activity was observed after six months.

Applications and Recommended Usage?
Quality Tested by Leinco
Flow Cytometry: It is recommended to use the indirect method for signal enhancement when enumerating cells expressing CD40. A suggested method would be to stain cells expressing CD40 with 0.25 µg per 1 - 2.5 x 106 cells in a total staining volume of ≤200 µl followed by PN:R485.
Other Applications Reported In Literature ?
Immunoprecipitation: This antibody has been used for the immunoprecipitation of CD40 from mouse B cells or CD40 transfectants.
CyTOF-ready: Ready to be labeled using established conjugation methods. No BSA or other carrier proteins that could interfere with conjugation.
Each investigator should determine their own optimal working dilution for specific applications. See directions on lot specific datasheets, as information may periodically change.
Clone 1C10 recognizes an epitope on mouse CD40.
CD40 is widely expressed on antigen-presenting cells such as dendritic cells, B cells, macrophages, and monocytes, in addition to non-immune endothelial cells, basal epithelial cells, and a variety of tumors.
CD40 is a 48 kD type I transmembrane glycoprotein that is a member of the TNFR superfamily. CD40, in association with its ligand CD154 (CD40L) - a 39 kD protein, acts as a costimulatory molecule for the activation of B cells, dendritic cells, monocytes, and other antigen presenting cells. CD40 is involved in Ig isotype switching and dendritic cell maturation, as well as the activation, differentiation and proliferation of B cells. CD40 interacts with TNFR2 and is involved in the regulation of signal transduction. CD40 is a potential target for cancer immunotherapy. Blocking the interaction of CD40 with its ligand (CD154) is the sought-after therapeutic objective for preventing and/or improving both autoimmune diseases and transplant rejection. Studies have shown that monoclonal antibodies that block CD154 in human clinical trials resulted in unanticipated vascular complications. Hence, an interest in the therapeutic potential for antagonist mAbs specific for human CD40 is emerging. Antibodies of particular therapeutic interest are those that do not inhibit CD40 signaling via physical competition with CD154. Additionally, the interaction of CD40 and its ligand (CD154) is found to be essential for amyloid-beta-induced microglial activation, thus plays a significant part in Alzheimer disease pathogenesis.
