N-terminal sequence Analysis
Predicted Molecular Mass
28-34 kDa, reducing conditions
Measured by its ability to induce IL-8 secretion in HT1080 human fibrosarcoma cells transfected with human OX40/TNFRSF4. Muller, N. et al. (2008) FEBS J. 275:2296. The ED50 for this effect is typically 1-5 ng/mL. Measured by its binding ability in a functional ELISA. When Recombinant Human OX40/TNFRSF4 Fc Chimera (Catalog # 3388-OX) is immobilized at 10 ng/mL, the concentration of Recombinant Human OX40 Ligand/TNFSF4 that produces 50% optimal binding response is found to be approximately 0.5‑3 ng/mL.

Formulation, Preparation and Storage
What does CF mean?
CF stands for Carrier Free (CF). We typically add Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) as a carrier protein to our
Adding a carrier protein enhances protein stability, increases shelf-life, and allows the recombinant
protein to be stored at a more dilute concentration.
The carrier free version does not contain BSA.
What formulation is right for me?
In general, we advise purchasing the recombinant protein with BSA for use in cell or tissue culture, or
as an ELISA standard.
In contrast, the carrier free protein is recommended for applications, in which the presence of BSA

Background: OX40 Ligand/TNFSF4
OX40 Ligand (OX40L), also known as gp34, is a type II transmembrane glycoprotein belonging to the TNF superfamily. Human OX40L cDNA encodes a 183 amino acids (aa) polypeptide with an amino-terminal cytoplasmic domain (aa 1¬23) and a carboxy¬terminal extracellular domain (aa 51-183). It shares 46% aa sequence identity with the mouse counterpart. OX40L is expressed on the surface of activated B cells, T cells, dendritic cells and endothelial cells. Similarly to other TNF superfamily members, membrane-bound OX40 Ligand exists as a homotrimer. OX40L binds to OX40 (CD134), a member of the TNF receptor superfamily that is expressed predominantly on activated CD4+ T cells. OX40 Ligand is one of the co¬stimulatory molecules in the immune system that includes B7, CD40 Ligand, CD30 Ligand, CD27 Ligand and 4¬1BB Ligand. Because OX40 appears as a late activation-induced T cell surface antigen, it has been speculated that the major function of OX40-OX40L interaction is to transmit a late co-stimulatory signal to promote the survival and proliferation of activated CD4+ T cells and prolong the immune response. Engagement of OX40 on activated T cells in situ in tumors has been shown to augment immune responses and subsequent tumor regression.
