Alternative names of antibody target:
CD40L, CD40 Ligand, CD40Ligand, CD40-L, CD40-Ligand
Increasing evidence sμggests a central role for the CD40L-CD40 signaling pathway in several immunogenic and inflammatory processes, including atherosclerosis. It was also found that CD40L-CD40 signaling pathways play an important role in several autoimmune diseases, including the X-linked hyper-IgM syndrome, collagen-induced arthritis, allergic encephalitis and multiple sclerosis, and acute and chronic graft vs. host diseases.

Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) Protein A affinity purified rabbit anti-mouse CD40L polyclonal antibody in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA and 0.01% thimerosal.
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml). However, the optimal conditions should be determined individually. Recombinant murine CD40L (Cat.# 4015-10) can be used as a positive control.
Shelf time: 12 months in temp.: -20 deg.C
How to handle this antibody:
The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.
This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by Biovision they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
