Background of BCMA/TNFRSF17

TNFRSF17 (Tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily member 17), also called BCMA, is a protein that in humans is encoded by the TNFRSF17 gene. The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the TNF-receptor superfamily and is mapped to 16p13.13. This receptor is preferentially expressed in mature B lymphocytes, and may be important for B cell development and autoimmune response. This receptor has been shown to specifically bind to the tumor necrosis factor (ligand) superfamily, member 13b (TNFSF13B/TALL-1/BAFF), and to lead to NF-kappaB and MAPK8/JNK activation. This receptor also binds to various TRAF family members, and thus may transduce signals for cell survival and proliferation.

11 Customer Q&As for Human TNFRSF17/BCMA ELISA Kit PicoKine®


Since the the detection antibody in EK0661 is polyclonal antibody and polyclonal antibodies vary widely from batch to batch, how do you ensure stability between different batches? What is the standard? Do you have any data?

Verified customer

Asked: 2022-06-09


Both the capture antibody and detection antibody are polyclonal antibodies in the Human TNFRSF17/BCMA ELISA Kit PicoKine® (EK0661). Our lab usually run in-house tests with new lot of antibodies and compare results of new and old lots to ensure stability. For different lots of kits, our lab usually perform reproducibility test. Please see the data listed on the product datasheet. CV of different lots ≤10%.

Q: which procedure should I follow in order to thaw whole blood sample for BCMA ELISA after freezing?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2020-06-02


A: do not freeze and thaw whole blood. erythrocytes are fragile and, if frozen and thawed, will undergo hemolysis rendering the samples useless. To keep your blood samples to test BCMA for a later time, you should let the blood clot in glass tubes and collect the serum to freeze for later use.

Q: Are Boster Bio recombinant proteins and antibodies sterile?

M. Jackson

Verified customer

Asked: 2020-03-25


A: although the vials are bottled using aseptic techniques, heat-treated vials, and sterile stock solutions, they are not considered or guaranteed to be sterile. If sterile material is required for an experiment, the material can be filtered through a 0.2 micron filter designed for use with biological fluids.

Q: how much samples can be assayed in a Picokine® ELISA Kit?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-08-18


A: The Picokine® ELISA Kits will generally run a 7-point standard curve, non-specific binding wells, and 39 samples in duplicate. this may might differ by kit so please refer to each datasheet for details.

Q: what is the protocol regarding preparation of cell lysates prepared for use in Picokine® ELISA kits?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-04-09


A: in those Picokine® ELISAs where cell or tissue lysate is a validated sample type, sample preparation instructions for lysate are present in the product insert. Components in lysate and lysis buffer can change immunoreactivity, so if lysate is not a validated sample type, care must be taken in sample preparation and validation.

Could you tell me where this EK0661 antibody binds to BCMA? The intracellular domain or extracellular domain?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2017-11-30


The EK0661 antibody binds the intracellular domain since the immunogen is from the C-terminal region of BCMA

Q: is it okay to use citrate plasma as samples in Human BCMA Picokine® ELISA Kit (Catalog # EK0661)?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2017-07-27


A: Chelating agents such as EDTA, Heparin and Citrate can irreversibly bind metal ions from the functional domain of BCMA causing degradation of its protein structure. BCMA may be denatured as a result and may compromise the assay's measurements. The chilating sites could also be too close to the epitopes needed for detection and block the antigen antibody reaction. We have tested the BCMA ELISA, treating samples with various anticoagulants and decided that heparin or EDTA can be used for treatment of blood/plasma samples. Do not use other anticoagulents when collecting samples.
