Human TNFRSF14/HVEM ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Human TNFRSF14/HVEM ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of human TNFRSF14 in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA).
Tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily member 14(TNFRSF14), also known as HVEM, is a protein that in humans is encoded by the TNFRSF14 gene. The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the TNF-receptor superfamily. It is mapped to 1p36.32. HVEM plays an important role in HSV pathogenesis because it enhanced the entry of several wildtype HSV strains of both serotypes into CHO cells, and mediated HSV entry into activated human T cells. HVEM and BTLA which are form a bidirectional signaling pathway can regulate cell survival and inhibitory responses between interacting cells. HVEM as an important orchestrator of mucosal immunity integrates signals from innate lymphocytes to induce optimal epithelial Stat3 activation, which indicated that targeting HVEM with agonists could improve host defense.
