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 RAW 264.7 mouse macrophages 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 # MAB626). The ND50 is typically 0.8-2.5 µg/mL.

TRANCE/TNFSF11/RANK L in Human Lymph Node. TRANCE/TNFSF11/RANK L was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human lymph node using 5 µg/mL Mouse Anti-Human TRANCE/TNFSF11/RANK L Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB626) overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained with the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue).

TNF-related activation-induced cytokine (TRANCE; also RANKL, OPGL, and ODF) is a 35 kDa (predicted) type II transmembrane glycoprotein and member of the TNF cytokine family. Human TRANCE is 317 amino acids (aa) in length and contains a 47 aa cytoplasmic region, a 21 aa transmembrane region, and a 249 extracellular domain (ECD), which contains two potential sites of N-linked glycosylation. Splicing variants produce three isoforms for human TRANCE. Isoform 1 is the standard form. In isoform 2 lacks aa 1-73, and isoform 3 lacks aa 1-47. TRANCE is expressed highest in the peripheral lymph nodes and weaker in the spleen, peripheral blood leukocytes, bone marrow, heart,placenta, skeletal muscle, stomach, and thyroid. TRANCE plays a role in osteoclast differentiation and activation.
