Preparation And Storage

The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. The antibody was conjugated with biotin under optimum conditions, and unreacted biotin was removed. Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources for technical protocols.
  3. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.

OX-40

The OX-40 antibody reacts with the 50-kDa OX-40 Antigen (CD134), also known as OX-40 Receptor, on CD4+ T lymphocytes activated in vitro and in vivo. The antigen is a member of the NGFR/TNFR superfamily, which includes low-affinity nerve growth factor receptor, TNF receptors, the Fas antigen, CD137 (4-1BB), CD27, CD30, and CD40. CD134 supplies costimulatory signals for T-cell proliferation and effector functions. While OX-40 mAb is not mitogenic, it does augment some in vitro T-cell responses. It is also reported to block binding of OX-40 Ligand to OX-40 Antigen.

Biotin
Biotin is a ubiquitous co-factor (also known as Vitamin B7) that has many properties that make it extremely useful for molecular biology. Biotin has an extremely high affinity for the Avidin family of proteins (Kd = 10-15 M), making it the perfect tool to link two molecules. Biotin labeled antibodies can be combined with any number of Avidin-conjugated probes in order to customize an assay to a particular need. This is especially useful in the case of magnetic cell separation using streptavidin/magnetic bead conjugates, or in the case of flow cytometry using streptavidin/fluorophore conjugates.
