Regulatory Status Legend
The TRAP1 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD154. CD154 is a 39 kDa type II membrane glycoprotein that is a member of the tumor necrosis factor superfamily, Tumor necrosis factor ligand superfamily member 5 (TNFSF5). CD154 is expressed on a variety of cell types including activated CD4+ T cells and some CD8+ T cells, NK cells, mast cells and basophils. CD154 is also known as CD40 ligand (CD40L); it serves as a ligand for CD40 that is expressed on B cells, macrophages, and dendritic cells. The expression of CD154 by activated T-helper cells costimulates B-cell activation and proliferation through binding to CD40 expressed on B cells. In response to T-dependent antigens, the CD154 and CD40 interaction is required for B-lymphocyte differentiation, including immunoglobulin production and isotype switching and memory B cell generation. The TRAP1 antibody can partially block T cell-B cell interaction and inhibit the subsequent proliferation, differentiation, and memory formation of B cells. It has been reported that patients with X-linked hyper-IgM syndrome have defective expression of functional CD154 due to mutations in the CD40LG gene that encodes CD154.
Allophycocyanin (APC), is an accessory photosynthetic pigment found in blue-green algae. Its molecular weight is approximately 105 kDa. APC has six phycocyanobilin chromophores per molecule, which makes it a very bright fluorochrome that is highly suitable for flow cytometry applications. Due to nearly identical excitation and emission properties but different spillover characteristics, APC and Alexa Fluor® 647 cannot be used simultaneously

Preparation and Storage
The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.
The antibody was conjugated to APC under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free APC were removed.
Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.
- This reagent has been pre-diluted for use at the recommended Volume per Test. We typically use 1 × 10^6 cells in a 100-µl experimental sample (a test).
- Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.

- 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.
- Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
