Detects human TACI/TNFRSF13B in direct ELISAs. In direct ELISAs, no cross-reactivity with recombinant human BCMA or recombinant mouse TACI is observed.
Monoclonal Mouse IgG1 Clone # 165604
Protein A or G purified from hybridoma culture supernatant
Mouse myeloma cell line NS0-derived recombinant human TACI/TNFRSF13B Ser2-Thr166 Accession # O14836
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.
0.25 µg/106 cells
Blockade of Receptor-ligand Interaction
In a functional ELISA, 0.05-0.2 µg/mL of this antibody will block 50% of the binding of 50 ng/mL of Recombinant Human BAFF/BLyS/TNFSF13B (Catalog # 2149-BF) to immobilized Recombinant Human TACI/TNFRSF13B Fc Chimera (Catalog # 174-TC) coated at 1 µg/mL (100 µL/well). At 10 μg/mL, this antibody will block >90% of the binding.
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.

TACI, transmembrane activator and CAML-interactor, is a member of the TNF receptor superfamily. TACI is a type III membrane protein with an extracellular N‑terminus in the absence of a cleaved signal sequence. The extracellular region of TACI contains two cysteine rich domains. Within the TNFRSF, it shares the highest homology with BCMA. TACI and BCMA have both been shown to bind APRIL and BAFF, members of the TNF ligand superfamily. TACI is expressed on the cell surface of B cells and activated, but not resting, T cells. Analogous to BCMA, data suggests that TACI may play an important role in B cell development, function and regulation. Human TACI is a 293 amino acid (aa) protein consisting of a 166 aa extracellular domain, a 20 aa transmembrane domain, and a 107 aa intracellular domain. Human and mouse TACI share 54% amino acid identity.
