This protein carries a human IgG1 Fc tag at the C-terminus.
The protein has a calculated MW of 50.5 kDa. The protein migrates as 60-90 kDa under reducing (R) condition (SDS-PAGE) due to different glycosylation.
Less than 1.0 EU per μg by the LAL method.
>95% as determined by reduced SDS-PAGE.
Lyophilized from 0.22 μm filtered solution in 50 mM Tris, 100 mM Glycine, pH7.5. Normally trehalose is added as protectant before lyophilization.

Cynomolgus / Rhesus macaque B7-1, Fc Tag on SDS-PAGE under reducing (R) condition. The gel was stained overnight with Coomassie Blue. The purity of the protein is greater than 95%.
Immobilized Cynomolgus / Rhesus macaque CTLA-4, His Tag (Cat. No. CT4-C5227) at 2 μg/mL (100 μL/well) can bind Cynomolgus / Rhesus macaque B7-1, Fc Tag (Cat. No. CD0-C5252) with a linear range of 1-8 ng/mL (QC tested).
B7-1 and B7-2, together with their receptors CD28 and CTLA4, constitute one of the dominant co-stimulatory pathways that regulate T and Bcell responses. Although both CTLA4 and CD28 can bind to the same ligands, CTLA4 binds to B71 and B72 with a 20 100 fold higher affinity than CD28 and is involved in the downregulation of the immune response.
B-lymphocyte activation antigen B7-1 (referred to as B7) also known as cluster of Differentiation 80 (CD80), is a member of cell surface immunoglobulin superfamily and is expressed on activated B cells, activated T cells, macrophages and dendritic cells. It is the ligand for two different proteins on the T cell surface: CD28 (for autoregulation and intercellular association) and CTLA-4 (for attenuation of regulation and cellular disassociation). CD80 works in tandem with CD86 to prime T cells. CD80 plays a role in induction of innate immune responses by activating NF-κB-signaling pathway in macrophages. CD80 is thus regarded as promising therapeutic targets for autoimmune diseases and various carcinomas.
