CD40LG expression is mainly confined to the CD4-positive-T-cell subset. Its expression is induced shortly after T-cell activation and represents an early activation marker of T lymphocytes. CD40 is constitutively expressed mainly on B cells, macrophages, and dendritic cells. The CD40-CD40L pathway has been shown to play multiple functional roles in the healthy immune system. It enhances the antigen-specific T-cell response throµgh the activation of dendritic cells and the induction of interleukin-12 production. For example, engagement of CD40 on endothelial cells by activated T cells expressing CD40L leads to upregulation of adhesion molecules such as ICAM-1, VCAM-1, and E-selectin. Activation of APC by CD40-CD40L interaction induces the production of inflammatory cytokines, chemokines, NO, and metalloproteinases. Interaction of CD4-positiveCD40LG-positiveT cells with CD40 on B cells leads to B-cell differentiation, proliferation, immunoglobulin (Ig) isotype switching, and formation of memory B cells.
ELISA (For coating, order antibody without BSA); Flow Cytometry (1-2ug/million cells); Immunofluorescence (1-2ug/ml); Immunohistochemistry (Formalin-fixed) (1-2ug/ml for 30 minutes at RT),(Staining of formalin-fixed tissues requires heating tissue sections in 10mM Tris with 1mM EDTA, pH 9.0, for 45 min at 95°C followed by cooling at RT for 20 minutes);
