Detects human TRANCE/TNFSF11/RANK L in direct ELISAs. No cross-reactivity with recombinant mouse TRANCE is observed.
Monoclonal Mouse IgG2B Clone # 70525
Protein A or G purified from ascites
S. frugiperda insect ovarian cell line Sf 21-derived recombinant human TRANCE/TNFSF11/RANK L Gly136-Asp317 (Ala194Gly) Accession # O14788
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 RAW 264.7 mouse macrophages. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 0.8-2.5 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 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).

Background: TRANCE/TNFSF11/RANK L
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.
