Mouse GITR Ligand/TNFSF18 Antibody Summary

Species Reactivity
Detects mouse GITR Ligand/TNFSF18 in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In direct ELISAs, no cross-reactivity with recombinant human GITR Ligand, recombinant mouse (rm) CD40, or rmTNF-alpha is observed.
Monoclonal Rat IgG2A Clone # 337122
Protein A or G purified from hybridoma culture supernatant
Mouse myeloma cell line NS0-derived recombinant mouse GITR Ligand/TNFSF18
Accession # Q80YG2
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS with Trehalose. *Small pack size (SP) is supplied either lyophilized or as a 0.2 µm filtered solution in PBS.
Endotoxin Level
<0.10 EU per 1 μg of the antibody by the LAL method.


Recommended Concentration

Mouse GITR Ligand/TNFSF18 Sandwich Immunoassay

Recommended Concentration
ELISA Capture (Matched Antibody Pair)
2-8 µg/mL 

Use in combination with:

Detection Reagent: Mouse GITR Ligand/TNFSF18 Biotinylated Antibody (Catalog # BAF2177)

Standard: Recombinant Mouse GITR Ligand/TNFSF18 (aa 47-173) Protein (Catalog # 2177-GL)

Measured by its ability to neutralize GITR Ligand/TNFSF18-induced proliferation in mouse CD4+ T cells. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 2-8 µg/mL in the presence of 2 µg/mL Recombinant Mouse GITR Ligand/TNFSF18, 0.5 µg/mL Mouse CD3 epsilon Monoclonal Antibody, and 10 µg/mL of a cross-linking antibody, polyHistidine Monoclonal Antibody.

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.

Cell Proliferation Induced by GITR Ligand/TNFSF18 and Neutralization by Mouse GITR Ligand/TNFSF18 Antibody. In the presence of Mouse CD3e Monoclonal Anti-body (0.5 µg/mL, Catalog # MAB484) and a cross-linking antibody, polyHistidine Monoclonal Antibody (10 µg/mL, Catalog # MAB050), Recombinant Mouse GITR Ligand/TNFSF18 (Catalog # 2177-GL) stimulates proliferation in mouse CD4+T cells in a dose-dependent manner (orange line). Under these conditions, proliferation elicited by Recombinant Mouse GITR Ligand/TNFSF18 (2 µg/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Rat Anti-Mouse GITR Ligand/ TNFSF18 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB2177). The ND50 is typically 2-8 µg/mL.

Background: GITR Ligand/TNFSF18

Glucocorticoid-induced TNF receptor superfamily-related protein ligand (GITRL) is a member of the TNF superfamily (TNFSF) and has been designated TNFSF18. Mouse GITRL cDNA encodes a 173 amino acid (aa) residues type II membrane protein with a C-terminal extracellular domain of 131 aa, an N-terminal cytoplasmic domain of 23 aa and a transmembrane domain of 19 aa. It shares approximately 60% aa sequence identity with human GITRL (2). Mouse GITRL is expressed at high levels in macrophages, dendritic cells and B cells. The expression is transiently up-regulated by LPS stimulation. GITRL binds to the type I transmembrane protein GITR/TNFRSF18, which is a member of the TNF receptor superfamily that is predominantly expressed on CD25+ regulatory CD4+ T cells (Treg). GITR is also expressed on naïve CD4+ CD25- T cells, where its expression is up-regulated after antigen-driven activation (1, 2). Ligation of GITR has been found to induce nuclear factor (NF)-kappa B activation via TNF receptor-associated factor 2. GITRL provides co-stimulatory signals for activated CD4+ CD25- T cells to enhance cell proliferation and augment cytokine production. On CD4+ CD25+ Treg cells, GITRL also provides co-stimulatory signals to induce proliferation, setting Treg cells in an active/hyperproliferactive state that reverses the suppressive function of Treg cells. GITRL-GITR ligation provides important co-stimulatory signals that play important roles in modulating diverse T cell functions (1‑4).
