GITR (glucocorticoid-induced TNFR-related gene) is a member of the TNF receptor superfamily, also known as TNFRSF18 and AITR (in humans). It is expressed at low levels on resting T lymphocytes and at high levels on CD25+ CD4+ Tregs. The expression of GITR on T cells can be upregulated upon activation. Interaction of GITR with its ligand (GITRL) has been demonstrated to augment T cell activation, proliferation, cytokine production as well as MAPKs and NF-κB activation, and abrogate the inhibitory function of CD25+ CD4+ Tregs. In vivo activation of GITR causes development of autoimmune diseases and restores the suppressed immune response.Product Details

- 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 ≤ 1.0 µg per million cells in 100 µl volume. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

- 66-70 kD homodimer of TNFR superfamily member.
Low levels on resting T cells, B cells, and macrophages; high levels on CD25+ CD4+ Tregs and CD25+ CD4+ CD8- thymocytes.
- Stimulation of GITR can abrogate or reduce the inhibitory function of CD25+ CD4+ Treg cells. In vivo activation of GITR may lead to the development of autoimmune diseases.

- 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.
