Background of TRANCE/TNFSF11/RANK L

Receptor activator of nuclear factor kappa-B ligand (RANKL), also known as tumor necrosis factor ligand superfamily member 11 (TNFSF11), is a protein that in humans is encoded by the TNFSF11 gene. This gene encodes a member of the tumor necrosis factor (TNF) cytokine family which is a ligand for osteoprotegerin and functions as a key factor for osteoclast differentiation and activation. This gene is mapped to chromosome13q14.11. Targeted disruption of the related gene in mice led to severe osteopetrosis and a lack of osteoclasts. The deficient mice exhibited defects in early differentiation of T and B lymphocytes, and failed to form lobulo-alveolar mammary structures during pregnancy. This gene may play an important role in enhanced bone-resorption in humoral hypercalcemia of malignancy.

Q: Are Boster Bio recombinant proteins and antibodies sterile?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2020-07-11


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 needed for an experiment, the material can be filtered through a 0.2 micron filter designed for use with biological fluids.

Q: Can TRANCE ELISA Kits be used with tissue homogenates (or other non-validated sample types)?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2020-02-18


A: Unfortunately, Boster Bio has not routinely validated tissue homogenates as a sample type for ELISA kits. This does not mean that ELISA kits are not suitable for other sample types than we have tested: it means further investigation is required. One will need to perform a spike and recovery study to determine if an unvalidated sample type will work with a particular kit. To perform a spike and recovery experiment, one should divide a sample into two aliquots. In one of the aliquots, the user should spike in a known amount of the kit standard. a dilution series is performed comparing the spiked versus the unspiked sample. Generally, samples with expected recovery and linearity between 80-120% are considered acceptable. This method can be used to validate any sample type that has not been evaluated by Boster Bio. for a more detailed spike and recovery protocol, please contact technical support.
Note: acceptable ranges should be determined individually by each laboratory. Additionally, technical support can help determine if a buffer component is not compatible with a given ELISA kit. please view the Citations tab on the product webpage for peer-reviewed papers utilizing a wide range of sample types. We also have an innovator's reward program where if the user validates our ELISA kits in applications or samples previously not validated by Boster Bio or other users, and share such information with us by submit a review, we will reward the user's efforts with a free antibody or ELISA kit from our catalog. will also give $20 Amazon giftcard as an additional reward, if the review is submitted there as well.

To Technical Support: I am interested to use this Mouse TNFSF11/RANKL ELISA Kit but I would like to know the minimum amount to run the sample. I will use na

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2017-09-19


It is not possible that we can predict the minimum amount to be use in the samples as the amount of RANKL varies between experimental populations. Stated in the datasheets the sensitivity of this Mouse TNFSF11/RANKL ELISA Kit is <10pg/ml, so if you know how much RANK is present in your sample then it would be possible to calculate the minimum amount. However, we can recommend to run the technique of quick ELISA with your samples. Quick ELISA is when you run your top, middle, bottom and blank standards in the first four wells of the first column on the plate. Then you can use the next four columns in the plate to set up a serial dilution of your samples. Just run the ELISA in those wells only and cut all the incubation times in half. Through this it would give you an idea of the dilution you need to use in order to get your samples to fall within the standard curve.

Answered: 2017-09-19


As we know that RANKL presents on cell membrane cleaved by ADAM17 and in cytosol as soluble form. Could you tell me whether Mouse TNFSF11/RANKL ELISA Kit reacts with soluble form and membrane-binding form?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2017-04-20


The Mouse TNFSF11/RANKL ELISA Kit detects the membrane bound form of RANKL, however it does not detect the soluble form. Do check these publication for your further references; Rubin et al. 2004. Prostate Carcinoma Cells that Have Resided in Bone have an Upregulated IGF-IAxis. The Prostate 58:41-49. In this study they used the same clone antibody to detect the membrane bound form of RANKL (mRANKL) and an antibody from another source to detect the soluble form of RANKL (sRANKL)
