LT-βR, also known as lymphotoxin beta receptor and tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily member 3 is a 47 kD transmembrane protein containing 3 TNF receptor domains. The LT-βR is a receptor for the heterotrimeric lymphotoxin complex (composed of LTα and LTβ as well as LIGHT). LT-βR is highly expressed in the lung, liver, and kidney and moderately expressed expressed in the heart and testes. LT-βR is weakly expressed in the brain, thymus, spleen, and lymph nodes. The cytoplasmic tail of LT-βR interacts with TRAF3, TRAF4, and TRAF5 as well as the hepatitis C virus core protein. Ligand binding to LT-βR has been shown to induce apoptosis (via TRAF3 and TRAF5) and play a role in the development of lymphoid organs. The 31G4D8 antibody has been shown to be useful for flow cytometry, Western blot, immunoprepicitation and and ELISA (detection antibody). In addition, the 31G4D8 antibody is an agonistic antibody for the LT-βR capable of inducing apoptosis (with IFN-γ treatment).Product Details

- The antibody solution should be stored undiluted between 2°C and 8°C. This LEAF™ solution contains no preservative; handle under aseptic conditions.
FC - Quality tested
WB, IP, Apop - Reported in the literature
- Recommended Usage
- Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by immunofluorescent staining with flow cytometric analysis. For flow cytometric staining, the suggested use of this reagent is ≤2.0 µg per million cells in 100 µl volume. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.
- Application Notes
Additional reported applications (for the relevant formats) include: Western blotting1, immunoprecipitation1, ELISA detection1, induction of apoptosis2. The biotinylated 31G4D8 antibody is useful as a detection antibody for a sandwich ELISA assay, when used in conjunction with the purified 36G9G3 antibody (Cat. No. 322101/322102) as capture antibody. The LEAF™ purified antibody (Endotoxin <0.1 EU/μg, Azide-Free, 0.2 μm filtered) is recommended for functional assays (Cat. No. 322003/322004).

- Does BioLegend test each LEAF™ antibody by functional assay?
No, BioLegend does not test LEAF™ antibodies by functional assays unless otherwise indicated. Due to the possible complexities and variations of uses of biofunctional antibodies in different assays and because of the large product portfolio, BioLegend does not currently perform functional assays as a routine QC for the antibodies. However, we do provide references in which the antibodies were used for functional assays and we do perform QC to verify the specificity and quality of the antibody based on our strict specification criteria.
- Do you guarantee that your antibodies are totally pathogen free?
BioLegend does not test for pathogens in-house aside from the GoInVivo™ product line. However, upon request, this can be tested on a custom basis with an outside, independent laboratory.
- Does BioLegend test each LEAF™ antibody for potential pathogens?
No, BioLegend does not test for pathogens in-house unless otherwise indicated. However, we can recommend an outside vendor to perform this testing as needed.
- Have you tested this LEAF™/Ultra-LEAF™ antibody for in vivo or in vitro applications?
We don't test our antibodies for in vivo or in vitro applications unless otherwise indicated. Depending on the product, the TDS may describe literature supporting usage of a particular product for bioassay. It may be best to further consult the literature to find clone specific information.
