Formulation
This antigen affinity purified polyclonal 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 antigen affinity purified polyclonal antibody can be stored desiccated at -20°C to -70°C for twelve months from date of receipt. 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
Western Blotting: To detect Mouse CD40 this polyclonal antibody can be used at a concentration of 0.1-0.2 µg/ml. This polyclonal antibody should be used in conjunction with compatible second-step reagents such as PN:G505 and a chromogenic substrate such as PN:T343. The detection limit for Mouse CD40 is 0.5 ng/lane under either reducing or non-reducing conditions. The sensitivity of detection may increase up to 50 fold when a chemiluminescent substrate is used. A suitable Western blotting control is PN:C1336.
Other Applications Reported In Literature ?
Immunocytochemistry: Suitable for use at concentration of 5-15 µg/mL.
Each investigator should determine their own optimal working dilution for specific applications. See directions on lot specific datasheets, as information may periodically change.

Description

Specificity
Goat Anti-Mouse CD40 recognizes Mouse CD40. This antigen affinity purified polyclonal antibody was purified using a proprietary chromatographic technique that includes covalently immobilizing the antigen proteins or peptides to agarose based beads. This purification method enhances specificity, reduces nonspecific binding of extraneous IgG and provides you with the most reliable reagent available for your early discovery research.
Antigen Distribution
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.
Background
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.
