Mouse RANKL/TRANCE/TNFSF11 Recombinant Protein: Image 1
Serial dilutions of Mouse RANKL/TRANCE/TNFSF11 Recombinant Protein were added to RAW-Blue cells. The induction of secreted embryonic alkaline phosphatase (SEAP) production was measured and the linear portion of the curve was used to calculate the ED50.
Mouse RANKL/TRANCE/TNFSF11 Recombinant Protein: Image 2
The purity of Mouse RANKL/TRANCE/TNFSF11 Recombinant Protein was determined by SDS-PAGE of 1 µg reduced (+) and non-reduced (-) recombinant mRANKL and staining with Coomassie Blue.

Storage

Mouse RANKL/TRANCE/TNFSF11 Recombinant Protein is supplied as lyophilized material that is very stable at -20°C. It is recommended to reconstitute with sterile water at a concentration of 0.1 mg/ml which can be further diluted in aqueous solutions as needed. Addition of a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA) is recommended for long-term storage.

Product Description

MW (kDa) 19
Purity A greater than or equal to 95% purity was determined by SDS-PAGE.
Endotoxin Endotoxin levels are less than or equal to 1 EU / 1 μg mRANKL.
Activity The bioactivity of recombinant mRANKL was determined in a secreted embryonic alkaline phosphatase (SEAP) induction assay using RAW-Blue™ cells. The ED50 of each lot is less than or equal to 50 ng/ml. RAW-Blue™ Cells were purchased from InvivoGen Inc. 

Source / Purification

Recombinant mouse RANKL was expressed in E. coli and is supplied in a lyophilized form. This product was produced without any FBS or animal-derived ingredients.

Background

RANKL, also known as TRANCE, TNFSF11, or OPGL, is a member of the TNF superfamily of ligands. T cells, mammary epithelial cells, and endothelial cells can produce RANKL (1). RANKL is expressed as a type II transmembrane protein or cleaved into a soluble form by extracellular proteases, such as TACE, ADAM10, and matrix metalloproteases (1). Alternative splicing also results in the production of soluble RANKL (1). RANKL signaling is antagonized by osteoprotegerin, which functions as a soluble decoy receptor (2). RANKL plays key roles in mammary gland development and dendritic cell survival and is required for osteoclast differentiation and survival (3-6). Research studies have shown that RANKL deficiencies in both mice and humans are associated with abnormally increased bone density and defects in lymphoid organogenesis (5,6).
