Human CD27 is a lymphocyte specific member of the tumor necrosis factor (TNF) receptor family and is found primarily on peripheral blood T cells and on a subpopulation of B cells and NK cells. The ligand for CD27 is CD70, which is a member of the TNF ligand superfamily (2, 3). Antibody M-T271 does not block the interaction between CD27 and CD70.
Isotype: Murine IgG1
Immunogen: T cell line (from patient with CLL)
Specificity: Antibody M-T271 recognizes the dimeric CD27 molecule of approximately 110 kd (1, 4) but does not block the interaction between CD70 and CD27. Clone M-T271 has been shown to abrogate IL-4 production(7) or induce apoptosis(6) in MLR . Clone M-T271 is crossreactive with cynomolgus monkey CD27 (8).
