CTLA-4 Protein, Cynomolgus, Recombinant (Fc Tag): Product Information

Purity
> 95 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
Endotoxin
< 1.0 EU per μg of the protein as determined by the LAL method
Activity
Measured by its binding ability in a functional ELISA.
Immobilized human B7-1-His (Cat:10698-H08H) at 10 μg/ml (100 μl/well) can bind Cynomolgus CTLA4-Fc (Cat:90213-C02H), The EC50 of Cynomolgus CTLA4-Fc is 6.0-14.5 ng/ml.
Protein Construction
A DNA sequence encoding the cynomolgus/rhesus CTLA4 (Q9BDC4) (Met1-Asp161) was expressed with the Fc region of human IgG1 at the C-terminus. Cynomolgus and Rhesus CTLA4 sequences are identical.

CTLA-4 Background Information

Cytotoxic T-lymphocyte protein 4, also known as CTLA4 and CD152, is a single-pass type I membrane protein and a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily. It is the second member of the CD28 receptor family. The ligands or counterreceptors for these two proteins are the B7 family members, CD8 (B7-1) and CD86 (B7-2). CTLA4 transmits an inhibitory signal to T cells, whereas CD28 transmits a stimulatory signal. Intracellular CTLA4 is also found in regulatory T cells and may play an important role in their functions. CD152 or cytotoxic T lymphocyte antigen-4 (CTLA-4) is an essential receptor involved in the negative regulation of T cell activation. Because of its profound inhibitory role, CD152 has been considered a sound susceptible candidate in autoimmunity and a persuasive target for cancer immunotherapy. In particular, recent evidence suggests that CD152 is also important in the homeostasis and function of a population of suppressive cells, termed regulatory T cells (Treg).
