|Product Specification Sheet|
MultimericCD40L™ is a high activity construct in which two trimeric CD40 ligands are artificially linked via the collagen domain of ACRP30. This construct very effectively simulates the natural membrane-assisted aggregation of CD40L in vivo. It provides a simple and equally potent alternative to CD40L+enhancer combinations. MultimericCD40L™ has been shown to suppress alum-induced IL-1β release and caspase-1 activation in a dose-, CD40- and time dependent manner, without affecting BMDM (Bone marrow-derived macrophages) viability. It also effectively suppressed the inflammasome function triggered by NLRP3 activators. The secretion of caspase-1 independent inflammatory mediators has been shown to be unaltered or even enhanced.
