KLH conjugated synthetic peptide derived from human RANK
Cross reactive species
Human (Homo sapiens), Mouse (Mus musculus), Rat (Rattus norvegicus)
Water buffered solution containing 100ug/ml BSA, 50% glycerol and 0.09% sodium azide. Store at 4°C for 12 months.
This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
Polyclonals can be used for Western blot, immunohistochemistry on frozen slices or parrafin fixed tissues. The advantage is that there are more epitopes available in a polyclonal antiserum to detect the proteins than in monoclonal sera.
Cross Reactive Species details
No significant cross reactivity has been observed for this antibody for the tested species. However, note that due to limited knowledge it is impossible to predict with 100% guarantee that the antibody does not corss react with any other species.

Avoid freeze/thaw cycles as they may denaturate the polypeptide chains of the antibody, thus reducing its reactivity, specificity and sensitivity. For antibodies that are in liquid form or reconstituted lyophilized antibodies small amounts could become entrapped on the seal or the walls of the tube. Prior to use briefly centrifuge the vial to gather all the solution on the bottom.
CD265 is a member of the tumor necrosis factor receptor (TNFR) family. Human and murine CD265 share 81% amino acid identity in their extracellular domains. CD265 is widely expressed, with highest levels in skeletal muscle, thymus, liver, colon, small intestine and adrenal gland. CD265 is also expressed in dendritic cells. RANK and RANK ligand (RANKL) are important regulators of interactions between T cells and dendritic cells. RANK is the essential signaling receptor for osteoclast differentiation factor in osteoclastogenesis. Multiple tumor necrosis factor receptor-associated factors (TRAFs) are involved in the signaling of CD265. TRANCE (TNF-related activation-induced cytokines, also known as RANK ligand, osteoprotegerin ligand and osteoclast differentiation factor) is the ligand for CD265. The biological functions mediated by RANK include activation of NFkappaB and cjun N-terminal kinase, enhancement of T cell growth and dendritic cell function, induction of osteoclastogenesis and lymph node organogenesis. The soluble form of CD265 is able to block TRANCE induced biological activity. The binding of anti-CD265 to cell surface CD265 triggers signal transduction and induces CD265 mediated bioactivity.
