Optimized DNA sequence encoding extracellular domain of Rat CD40 including a C-terminal His tag was expressed in HEK293 cells.
Recombinant CD40 is a protein consisting of 185 amino acid residue subunits, due to glycosylation migrates as an approximately 30kDa protein on SDS-PAGE.
>97%, as determined by SDS-PAGE and HPLC
Endotoxin content was assayed using a LAL gel clot method.
Endotoxin level was found to be less than 0.1 ng/µg(1EU/µg).
Recombinant Rat CD40 is lyophilized from 0.2 μm filtered PBS solution, pH7.2 , 5% Trehalose.
Recombinant CD40 can be stored in working aliquots at 2° - 8° C for one month, or at -20°C to -70°C for twelve months.
Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.

The CD40 molecule is a 45-
50-kDa type I phosphorylated
glycoprotein that belongs to
the tumor necrosis factor
receptor superfamily and was
initially considered to be a
growth factor receptor on B
cells. The interaction of
CD40 with its natural
ligand, CD154, is a crucial
step in T cell-dependent B
cell activation and
The cellular events
triggered in CD40-positive
cells following CD40/CD154
interactions are not
restricted to B cells only
but can also be triggered in
dendritic cells, monocytes,
endothelial cells, and
fibroblasts. Thus, CD40
ligation mediates a broad
variety of immune and
inflammatory responses .
