Osteoclast-like Cell Formation Induced by TRANCE/ TNFSF11/RANK L and Neutralization by Mouse TRANCE/TNFSF11/RANK L Antibody. In the presence of Recombinant Mouse M-CSF (20 ng/mL, Catalog # 416-ML), Recombinant Mouse TRANCE/TNFSF11/RANK L (Catalog # 462-TR) induces osteoclast-like cell formation in mouse splenocytes in a dose-dependent manner (orange line), as measured by TRAP (tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase) solution assay. Under these conditions, osteoclast-like cell formation elicited by Recombinant Mouse TRANCE/TNFSF11/ RANK L (30 ng/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Goat Anti-Mouse TRANCE/TNFSF11/RANK L Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF462). The ND50 is typically 0.02-0.06 µg/mL.

TRANCE (receptor activator of NF-kappa B ligand [RANK L], also called TNF-related activation-induced cytokines, osteoprotegerin ligand [OPGL], and osteoclast differentiation factor [ODF]), is a member of the tumor necrosis factor (TNF) family. In the TNF superfamily nomenclature, TRANCE is referred to as TNFSF11. TRANCE was originally identified as an immediate early gene upregulated by T cell receptor stimulation. The murine TRANCE cDNA encodes a type II transmembrane protein of 316 amino acids with a predicted cytoplasmic domain of 48 amino acids and an extracellular domain of 247 amino acids. The extracellular domain contains two potential N-linked glycosylation sites. Mouse and human TRANCE share 85% amino acid identity. TRANCE is primarily expressed in T cells and T cell rich organs, such as thymus and lymph nodes. The multi-functions of TRANCE include induction of activation of the c-jun N-terminal kinase, enhancement of T cell growth and dendritic cell function, induction of osteoclastogenesis, and lymph node organogenesis. RANK is the cell surface signaling receptor of TRANCE. RANK has been shown to undergo receptor clustering during signal transduction. Osteoprotegerin, a soluble member of the TNF receptor family which binds TRANCE, is a naturally occurring decoy receptor that counterbalances the effects of TRANCE.
