  • 产品描述:

    The recombinant human B- and T-lymphocyte attenuator (BTLA) was produced in mammalian cells. The DNA fragment used to prepare the recombinant BTLA protein corresponds to amino acid 31-150 of the human BTLA protein containing a C-terminal hFc-Myc-tag. This BTLA protein is an active protein, whose bio-activity has been validated in a functional ELISA (bind to biotinylated human TNFRSF14 with the EC50 of 137.8-233.4 ng/ml). Its purity reaches up to 94%, determined by SDS-PAGE. Due to the glycosylation, this BTLA protein has an apparent molecular mass of 55 kDa on the gel while its predicted mass is 43.9 kDa. Its endotoxin is less than 1.0 EU/ug measured by the LAL method. It is available now.

    BTLA is an immunomodulatory molecule widely expressed on the surface of immune cells. Upon binding to its ligand HVEM, BTLA can influence various signaling pathways and negatively regulate the activation and proliferation of immune cells. It is implicated in the pathogenesis of many respiratory diseases, including airway inflammation, asthma, infection, and pneumonia.

  • 功能:
    Inhibitory receptor on lymphocytes that negatively regulates antigen receptor signaling via PTPN6/SHP-1 and PTPN11/SHP-2. May interact in cis (on the same cell) or in trans (on other cells) with TNFRSF14. In cis interactions, appears to play an immune regulatory role inhibiting in trans interactions in naive T cells to maintain a resting state. In trans interactions, can predominate during adaptive immune response to provide survival signals to effector T cells.
