BTLA Protein Product Information
A DNA sequence encoding the mouse BTLA(Met1-Gly176) was expressed, fused with the Fc region of human IgG1 at the C-terminus.
|Expression Host:||Human Cells|
BTLA Protein QC Testing
|Purity:||> 90 % as determined by SDS-PAGE||SDS-PAGE:
|Endotoxin:||< 1.0 EU per μg of the protein as determined by the LAL method|
|Stability:||Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -70℃|
|Predicted N terminal:||Glu 30|
The recombinant mouse BTLA /Fc is a disulfide-linked homodimer. The reduced monomer comprises 388 amino acids and has a predicted molecular mass of 437 kDa. The apparent molecular mass of the protein is approximately 57-62 kDa in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions due to glycosylation.
|Formulation:||Lyophilized from sterile PBS, pH7.4.

BTLA Protein Description
BTLA is a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily. It contains a single immunoglobulin (Ig) domain and is a receptor that relays inhibitory signals to suppress the immune response. BTLA is not expressed by naive T cells, but it is induced during activation and remains expressed on T helper type 1 (T(H)1) but not T(H)2 cells. BTLA is one of a growing number of inhibitory molecules that down-modulates immune responses. As such, reagents that regulate the binding of BTLA to its ligand or alter BTLA signaling have significant therapeutic promise. BTLA is a third inhibitory receptor on T lymphocytes with similarities to cytotoxic T lymphocyte-associated antigen 4 (CTLA-4) and programmed death 1 (PD-1). Polymorphisms in BTLA gene have been associated with an increased risk of rheumatoid arthritis.
