Pathogen Testing : To protect mouse colonies from infection by pathogens and to assure that experimental preclinical data is not affected by such pathogens, all of this recombinant biosimilar antibodies are tested and guaranteed to be negative for all pathogens in the IDEXX IMPACT I Mouse Profile.
This non-therapeutic biosimilar antibody uses the same variable region sequence as the therapeutic antibody Nivolumab. Clone 5C4.B8 binds to the extracellular portion of Human/Cynomolgus PD-1 and does not bind to other IgG superfamily proteins. This product is for research use only.
Programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1) is a protein on the surface of cells that plays a role in the maintenance of self-tolerance. PD-1 promotes self-tolerance via the down-regulation of the immune system which results in the suppression of T cell inflammatory activity. PD-L1 and PD-L2 are the two ligands known to bind PD-1. PD-L1 has increased expression in several cancers.1 PD-L2 has a more limited expression and is primarily expressed by dendritic cells and only some tumor lines. Inhibition of the interaction of PD-1 with its ligands can function as an immune checkpoint blockade through the improvement of In vitro T-cell responses and via the mediation of anti-tumor activity.2 Nivolumab disrupts the negative signal that is responsible for T-cell activation and proliferation by binding to PD-1 on activated immune cells to selectively block the interaction of the PD-1 receptor with its ligands.3 Emerging research suggests that combined blockade of PD-1 and CTLA-4, with nivolumab and ipilimumab respectively, could produce greater antitumor activity than blockade of either pathway alone.4 This cost-effective, research-grade Anti-Human CD279 (PD-1) (Nivolumab) utilizes the same variable regions from the therapeutic antibody Nivolumab making it ideal for research projects.
Endotoxin : <= 1.0 EU/mg as determined by the LAL method
The suggested concentration for Nivolumab biosimilar antibody for staining cells in flow cytometry is <= 0.25 µg per 106 cells in a volume of 100 µl. Titration of the reagent is recommended for optimal performance for each application.
