Mouse TNFSF18/GITRL ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Mouse TNFSF18/GITRL ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of mouse TNFSF18 in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA).
Tumor necrosis factor ligand superfamily member 18, also known as AITRL or GITRL, is a protein that in humans is encoded by the TNFSF18 gene. The protein encoded by this gene is a cytokine that belongs to the tumor necrosis factor(TNF) ligand family. It is mapped to 1q25.1. TNFSF18 is a ligand for receptor TNFRSF18/AITR/GITR. It has been shown to modulate T lymphocyte survival in peripheral tissues. This cytokine is also found to be expressed in endothelial cells, and is thought to be important for interaction between T lymphocytes and endothelial cells. TNFSF18-dependent modulation of tryptophan catabolism may represent an important mechanism of action of glucocorticoids, both physiologically and therapeutically.
