Rat anti Mouse CD254 antibody, clone IK22/5 recognises CD254, otherwise known as Receptor activator of nuclear factor kappa B ligand (RANKL) or TNF-related activation-induced cytokine (TRANCE), a member of the tumour necrosis factor ligand superfamily. CD254 is a cytokine that binds osteoprotegerin or RANK and plays an important role in bone metabolism, where it acts as an osteoclast differentiation and activation factor. Overproduction of CD254 is implicated in a range of degenerative bone diseases.

CD254 is also expressed by T helper cells and augments the ability of dendritic cells to stimulate naïve T cell proliferation. It may play a role in regulating interactions between T cells and dendritic cells and in the regulation of T cell-dependent immune responses.

Rat anti Mouse CD254 antibody, clone IK22/5 blocks ligand binding.
