Applications

Recommended Concentration
Sample
Western Blot
1 µg/mL
Recombinant Mouse BCMA/TNFRSF17 Fc Chimera (Catalog # 593-BC)
under non-reducing conditions only
Blockade of Receptor-ligand Interaction
In a functional ELISA, 0.4 - 1.6 μg/mL of this antibody will block 50% of the binding of 750 ng/mL of recombinant human APRIL to immobilized recombinant mouse BCMA/Fc Chimera coated at 1 μg/mL (100 μL/well). At 20 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.

Background: BCMA/TNFRSF17

BCMA, B cell maturation, is a member of the TNF receptor superfamily. It has been designated TNFRSF17. BCMA is a type III membrane protein containing one extracellular cysteine rich domain. Within the TNFRSF, it shares the highest homology with TACI. BCMA and TACI have both been shown to bind to APRIL and BAFF, members of the TNF ligand superfamily. BCMA expression has been found in immune organs and mature B cell lines. Although some expression has been observed at the cell surface, BCMA appears to be localized to the Golgi compartment. The binding of BCMA to APRIL or BAFF has been shown to stimulate IgM production in peripheral blood B cells and increase the survival of cultured B cells. This data suggests that BCMA may play an important role in B cell development, function and regulation. Mouse BCMA is a 185 amino acid (aa) protein consisting of a 49 aa extracellular domain, a 23 aa transmembrane domain, and a 113 aa intracellular domain. Mouse and human BCMA share 62% amino acid identity.
