LIGHT belongs to the TNF family of ligands, and can signal through the herpes virus entry mediator type A receptor (HVEM, TNFRSF14), LTbR, or bind to a decoy receptor, DcR3. It is expressed in splenocytes, activated PBL, CD+8 tumor infiltrating lymphocytes, granulocytes, and monocytes. LIGHT has the ability to active NFkB, to co-stimulate the activation of lymphocytes and to induce apoptosis in certain human tumor cells. Recombinant human LIGHT has a calculated mass of 19.3 kDa containing 177 amino acid residues. Recombinant murine LIGHT is a 20.1 kDa protein containing 183 amino acid residues.

Lyophilized from 20mM Tris, pH 8.5 + 100 mM Arginine.
Centrifuge the vial prior to opening. Reconstitute in water to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/ml. Do not vortex. This solution can be stored at 2-8°C for up to 1 week. For extended storage, it is recommended to further dilute in a buffer containing a carrier protein (example 0.1% BSA) and store in working aliquots at -20°C to -80°C.
