TRANCE/OPGL/RANKL/ODF is a recently identified member of tumor necrosis factor family. TRANCE (TNF-related activation-induced cytokine receptor) or RANKL {receptor activator of NF-kB (RANK) ligand} has been implicated in interactions between T cells and dendritic cells (4-5). RANKL (TRANCE) binds to RANK on dendritic cells, upregulates the expression of anti-apoptotic protein BcL-XL suggesting a role in DC survival (4). RANKL is also important in T- and B-cell maturation (3). As OPGL/ODF (Osteoprotegerin Ligand/Osteoclast differentiation factor), the same protein can both activate mature osteoclasts and mediate osteoclastogenesis (1,2). RANKL deficient mice show severe osteoporesis and complete absence of osteoclasts as a result of lack of osteogenesis (3).

A bacterially expressed fusion protein containing amino acid residues 1-317 of mouse RANKL was used as immunogen for this antibody. The antibody also recognizes human RANKL.
