Description: This 4B4 (4B4-1) monoclonal antibody reacts with human CD137 (also known as 4-1BB or TNFRSF9), which is an inducible member of the TNFR family of costimulatory molecules expressed on T cells, natural killer cells, dendritic cells, granulocytes, and mast cells. Involved in recruiting TNFR-associated factors (TRAF) 1 and 2, CD137 signaling plays a role in T cell activation, maintaining the survival of activated and CD8 memory T cells, as well as suppressing myelopoiesis and dendritic cell development. Stimulation of this receptor has also been shown to promote expansion of CD4+CD25+ T regulatory cells ex vivo. The ligand for CD137, 4-1BBL, is found on activated macrophages, mature B cells, hematopoietic stem cells, and myeloid progenitor cells.
Applications Reported: This 4B4 (4B4-1) antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This 4B4 (4B4-1) antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by flow cytometric analysis of stimulated normal human peripheral blood cells. This can be used at 5 µL (0.5 µg) per test. A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 105 to 108 cells/test.
Super Bright 436 can be excited with the violet laser line (405 nm) and emits at 436 nm. We recommend using a 450/50 bandpass filter, or equivalent. Please make sure that your instrument is capable of detecting this fluorochrome.
When using two or more Super Bright dye-conjugated antibodies in a staining panel, it is recommended to use Super Bright Complete Staining Buffer (Product # SB-4401) to minimize any non-specific polymer interactions. Please refer to the datasheet for Super Bright Staining Buffer for more information.
Excitation: 405 nm; Emission: 436 nm; Laser: Violet Laser
