Detects human TRANCE/TNFSF11/RANK L in direct ELISAs.
Monoclonal Mouse IgG1 Clone # 175707
Protein A or G purified from hybridoma culture supernatant
Mouse myeloma cell line NS0-derived recombinant human TRANCE/TNFSF11/RANK L Gly64-Asp245 Accession # AAC51762
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 TRANCE/TNFSF11/RANK L-induced osteoclast-like cell formation in the RAW 264.7 mouse monocyte/macrophage cell line. Nakagawa, N. et al. (1998) Biochim. Biophys. Res. Commun. 253:395. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 0.01-0.04 µg/mL in the presence of 30 ng/mL Recombinant Human TRANCE/TNFSF11/RANK L.
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.
Osteoclast-Like Cell Formation Induced by TRANCE/TNFSF11/RANK L and Neutralization by Human TRANCE/TNFSF11/RANK L Antibody. In the presence of Recombinant Mouse M‑CSF (20 ng/mL, Catalog # 416-ML), Recombinant Human TRANCE/TNFSF11/RANK L (Catalog # 390-TN) induces osteoclast-like cell formation in the RAW 264.7 mouse monocyte/macrophage cell line in a dose-dependent manner (orange line), as measured by TRAP (tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase) activity in cell lysates. Under these conditions, osteoclast-like cell formation elicited by Recombinant Human TRANCE/TNFSF11/RANK L (30 ng/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Mouse Anti-Human TRANCE/ TNFSF11/RANK L Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB6262). The ND50 is typically 0.01‑0.04 µg/mL.
