Human TNFSF14/LIGHT ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Human TNFSF14/LIGHT ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of human TNFSF14 in cell culture supernates, serum, plasma (heparin, EDTA) and saliva.
Tumor necrosis factor ligand superfamily member 14 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the TNFSF14 gene. TNFSF14 has also been designated as CD258, as well as LIGHT. It was mapped on chromosome 19p13.3. The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the tumor necrosis factor(TNF) ligand family. This protein may function as a costimulatory factor for the activation of lymphoid cells and as a deterrent to infection by herpesvirus. This protein has been shown to stimulate the proliferation of T cells, and trigger apoptosis of various tumor cells. This protein is also reported to prevent tumor necrosis factor alpha mediated apoptosis in primary hepatocyte. Two alternatively spliced transcript variant encoding distinct isoforms have been reported.
