Scientific Data

Human APRIL/TNFSF13 ELISA Standard Curve. Recombinant Human APRIL/TNFSF13 protein was serially diluted 2-fold and captured by Mouse Anti-Human APRIL/TNFSF13 Monoclonal Antibody (MAB8844) coated on a Clear Polystyrene Microplate (DY990). Goat Anti-Human APRIL/TNFSF13 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF884) was biotinylated and incubated with the protein captured on the plate. Detection of the standard curve was achieved by incubating Streptavidin-HRP (DY998) followed by Substrate Solution (DY999) and stopping the enzymatic reaction with Stop Solution (DY994).

Intracellular Staining by Flow Cytometry View Larger

Detection of APRIL/TNFSF13 in U937 Human Cell Line by Flow Cytometry. U937 human lymphoma cell line was stained with Goat Anti-Human APRIL/TNFSF13 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF884, filled histogram) or control antibody staining (AB-108-C, open histogram) followed by anti-Goat IgG PE-conjugated Secondary Antibody (F0107). To facilitate intracellular staining, cells were fixed with Flow Cytometry Fixation Buffer (FC004) and permeabilized with Flow Cytometry Permeabilization/Wash Buffer I (FC005).

Background: APRIL/TNFSF13

APRIL (a proliferation-inducing ligand), also known as TNFSF13, TALL2, and TRDL1, is a member of the TNF ligand superfamily (1). APRIL is synthesized as a 32 kDa type II transmembrane protein which is cleaved by furin in the Golgi to release a 17 kDa soluble molecule (2, 3). Secreted APRIL consists almost entirely of a single TNF homology domain (2, 3). Little or no transmembrane APRIL is expressed on the cell surface (3). Alternate splicing generates isoforms with short deletions at the N- or C-terminus (4). Human APRIL shares 85% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat APRIL. Among TNF superfamily ligands, BAFF shows the greatest sequence homology with APRIL, and the two proteins exhibit overlapping biological activities. APRIL promotes cellular proliferation and protects from apoptosis in normal and transformed cells (3, 5‑7). It is present in elevated amounts in a wide variety of cancers primarily due to expression by tumor-infiltrating neutrophils (4, 5, 7‑9). Both APRIL and BAFF bind and signal through the TNF superfamily receptors TACI and BCMA, and BAFF additionally functions through BAFF R (6, 10, 11). A stretch of basic amino acids at the N-terminus of APRIL is required for its interaction with heparan sulfate proteoglycans (HSPGs) (12, 13). Binding to HSPGs is independent of APRIL’s binding to TACI and BCMA (12, 13). Interaction with HSPGs serves to concentrate APRIL on the surface of cells, thereby favoring TACI- or BCMA-mediated effects (8, 9, 13). APRIL can form bioactive heterotrimers with BAFF, and these circulate in the serum of patients with rheumatic immune disorders (14). A bioactive protein known as TWE-PRIL consists of the intracellular domain, transmembrane segment, and stalk region of TWEAK fused to the TNF homology domain of APRIL (15). TWE-PRIL is expressed in monocytes and activated T cells, and in contrast to APRIL, it is presented on the cell surface (15).
