CD40 belongs to the TNF-receptor super family. CD40 has been found to be vital in mediating a wide range of immune and inflammatory responses including T cell-dependent immunoglobulin class switching, memory B cell development, and germinal center formation. AT-hook transcription factor AKNA is accounted to coordinately regulate the expression of CD40 and its ligand, which is significant for homotypic cell interactions. Adaptor protein TNFR2 interacts with CD40 and functions as a mediator of the signal transduction. The interaction of CD40 and its ligand is found to be essential for amyloid-beta-induced microglial activation, and therefore is considered to be an early event in Alzheimer disease pathogenesis.
CD40 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 196 amino acids (21-193a.a) and having a molecular mass of 21.6kDa.
CD40 is fused to a 23 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
