Protein A or G purified from hybridoma culture supernatant
Mouse myeloma cell line NS0-derived recombinant human BAFF Ala134-Leu285 Accession # Q9Y275
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS with Trehalose. *Small pack size (SP) is supplied as a 0.2 µm filtered solution in PBS.
<0.10 EU per 1 μg of the antibody by the LAL method.
Measured by its ability to neutralize BAFF/BLyS/TNFSF13B-induced proliferation in mouse B cells. At 20 µg/mL, this anti-BAFF/BLyS/TNFSF13B antibody will neutralize > 60% of 5 ng/mL Recombinant Human BAFF/BLyS/TNFSF13B-induced proliferation of mouse B cells.
Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application. General Protocols are available in the Technical Information section on our website.
Cell Proliferation Induced by BAFF/BLyS/TNFSF13B and Neutralization by Human BAFF/BLyS/TNFSF13B Antibody. Recombinant Human BAFF/BLyS/TNFSF13B (Catalog # 2149-BF) stimulates proliferation in mouse B cells in a dose-dependent manner (orange line). Proliferation elicited by Recombinant Human BAFF/BLyS/TNFSF13B (5 ng/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Mouse Anti-Human BAFF/BLyS/TNFSF13B Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB124). At 20 µg/mL, this anti-BAFF/BLyS/TNFSF13B antibody will neutralize 60% of Recombinant Human BAFF/BLyS/TNFSF13B-induced proliferation of mouse B cells.

BAFF, also known as B-lymphocyte stimulator (BLyS), TNF- and
APOL-related leukocyte expressed ligand 1 (TALL-1), and TNF homolog
that activates apoptosis, NFKB and JNK (THANK), is a TNF ligand
superfamily member and has been designated TNFSF13B.
