Description: OX40 receptor also known as CD134, a member of the tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily of receptors, is not constitutively expressed on resting naive T cells. OX40 is activated 24 to 72 hours after binding to its ligand; OX40L, and is a secondary co-stimulatory immune checkpoint molecule. Expression of OX40 is dependent on full activation of the CD28 absent-T cell.
Research area: Immunology
Production details: Primers specific to the murine sequence of the OX40L gene were used to generate a cDNA amplicon which was cloned into an expression vector. The vector has resistant markers to ampicillin and histidinol, and also contains promoters and enhancers for murine B-cells and plasma cells. A chimeric IgG1 and OX40 molecule with a 3' splice donor site was generated by subcloning the OX40L amplicon into a human IgG1 expression vector.
