Mouse anti Human CD154 antibody, clone TRAP-1 recognises the human CD40 ligand, also known as CD154, TNF-related activation protein (TRAP) or T-cell antigen Gp39. CD154 is a 261 amino acid ~32 kDa single pass, type-1 transmembrane glycoprotein (UniProt: P29965). CD154 is expressed on activated T lymphocytes, predominantly CD4 +ve and also on some basophils and mast cells.

Mouse anti Human CD154 antibody, clone TRAP-1 binds to CD154 at an epitope distinct from the CD40 binding site (Kroczek et al. 1994).
