This has been tested by flow cytometric analysis on human or mouse Fn14 transfected cells. This can be used at less than or equal to 1 ug per test. A test is defined as the amount (ug)/test of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 uL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.
Please note that this antibody is reactive to Mouse and derived from the same host, Mouse. Additional Mouse on Mouse blocking steps may be required for IHC and ICC experiments. Please contact Technical Support for more information.

The ITEM-4 antibody reacts with human TWEAK Receptor/Fn14 (fibroblast growth factor-inducible 14 kDa protein). Fn14 is distantly related to the TNFR family, containing one cysteine-rich domain in the extracellular region and a TNFR-associated factor binding domain but does not contain a death domain (DD) cytoplasmic region. Fn14 plays a role in TWEAK-induced endothelial cell migration, proliferation, and angiogenesis. TWEAK-induced cell death via Fn14 includes both apoptosis and necrosis and can be blocked by an anti-TWEAK antibody, CARL-1. Fn14 is expressed on HUVEC and in some cancer tissues but not on freshly isolated PBMCs. Fn14 mRNA expression has been identified during liver regeneration. It has been reported that ITEM-4 cross-reacts with mouse Fn14. In the mouse, Fn14 is reported to be constitutively expressed by Colon 26 cell line.
