HVEM/NF-κB Reporter Jurkat Recombinant Cell Line

Catalog #: 79310
Size: 2 vials
HVEM is a bidirectional switch regulating T-cell activation in a costimulatory or coinhibitory fashion whose outcome depends on the binding partner. HVEM can act as both receptor and ligand, the binding of endogenous ligand LIGHT or agonist antibodies to HVEM delivers a costimulatory signal; whereas the binding of HVEM to BTLA (IgSF) or CD160 on Effector T cells delivers a coinhibitory signal. LIGHT/HVEM axis are co-stimulatory immune checkpoint molecules extensively studied for cancer immunotherapy; LIGHT, either in the soluble monomer form or homotrimer expressed on the cell surface, can activate NF-kB through binding to HVEM; we have shown that LIGHT expressing cells are more potent and efficacious than the soluble LIGHT for activating HVEM expressed on T cell surface of this HVEM cell line.

The HVEM cell line is a recombinant clonal stable Jurkat T cell line expressing firefly luciferase gene under the control of 4 copies of NF-κB response elements with constitutive expression of human HVEM (Herpes Virus Entry Mediator, Tumor Necrosis Factor Receptor Superfamily Member 14, TNFRSF14, CD270, GenBank Accession No. NM_003820). Following activation by human HVEM ligand LIGHT, NF-ĸB transcription factors bind to the DNA response elements to induce transcription of the luciferase reporter gene.
