Alternate Names:  TNFSF11, TRANCE, OPGL, ODF              
Accession Number: O35235
Description:  Receptor activator of nuclear factor kappa-B Ligand (RANK Ligand) is a cell-bound marker related to the tumor necrosis factor (TNF) family of proteins. RANK Ligand plays a critical role in bone metabolism and osteoclast differentiation. T cell expression of RANK Ligand promotes dendritic cell maturation.
Source:  Genetically modified E.coli.
Predicted MW: Monomer, 19.5 kDa (175 aa)
Formulation:  Lyophilized from a sterile (0.2 micron) filtered aqueous solution containing 10 mM sodium phosphate, 50 mM sodium chloride, pH 7.5
