HVEM - HEK293 Recombinant Cell Line

Catalog #: 79313
Size: 2 vials
HVEM (CD270, TNFRSF14) is a human cell surface receptor in the TNF-receptor superfamily that can act as both a co-stimulatory receptor and a co-inhibitory receptor of T cells. Binding of HVEM to one of its ligands, LIGHT (CD258, TNFSF14) or LTα (lymphotoxin-α), causes a co-stimulatory signal which can activate lymphoid cells. Alternately, interaction with BTLA (CD272) or CD160 causes a co-inhibitory signal which negatively regulates T-cell immune responses. HVEM has also been shown to interact with adaptor proteins TRAF2 and TRAF5, and is critical to herpes simplex virus (HSV) cellular entry.
Recombinant HEK293 stably expressing human HVEM (Herpesvirus entry mediator; CD270; TNFRSF14; ATAR) GenBank Accession # NM_003820).
Immunotherapy, CD270, Herpesvirus entry mediator, HVEM, HEK293, HVEM - HEK293, TNFRSF14, BTLA
Supplied As:
Each vial contains ~3 X 106 cells in 1 ml of 10% DMSO.
Host Cell line:
HEK293 cells
Mycoplasma Testing:
The cell line has been screened using the metabolite-based Mycoplasma Detection Kit (Biotool, #B3903) to confirm the absence of Mycoplasma species.
Growth Media:

Thaw Medium 1 (BPS Bioscience, #60187): MEM medium (Hyclone, #SH30024.01) + 10% FBS (Life Technologies, #26140-079) + 1% non-essential amino acids (Hyclone, #SH30238.01) + 1 mM Na pyruvate (Hyclone, #SH30239.01) + 1% Penicillin/Streptomycin (Hyclone, SV30010.01)

Complete Growth Medium: Thaw Medium 1 (BPS Bioscience, #60187plus 100 µg/ml of Hygromycin B (Life Technologies, #10687-010). Cells should be grown at 37°C with 5% CO2 using complete growth medium to ensure recombinant expression. CTLA4-HEK293 cells should display a typical cell division time of about 24 hours. 

Instructions for use:
See cell line data sheet for detailed culturing and assay protocol.
Storage / Stability:

Immediately upon receipt, store in liquid nitrogen.
