HEK 293T NF-kB reporter cell line stably expressing exogenous human CD137 (4-1BB) gene.
CD137 is a member of the tumor necrosis (TNF) receptor family that functions as a co-stimulatory immune checkpoint molecule. CD137 is expressed on activated T cells and natural killer cells. Crosslinking of CD137 by agonistic antibody or its ligand enhances T cell proliferation, IL2 secretion and cytolytic activities.
Also known as: TNFRSF9, ILA, 4-1BB, or CDw137.

Thaw the vial as soon as possible upon receipt to ensure its viability.
1. Thaw the frozen vial in a 37°C water bath for 1-2 minutes.
2. Transfer the vial into biosafety cabinet. Wipe the surface with 70% ethanol and drop the cell suspension gently into a centrifuge tube containing 9.0 mL complete culture medium.
3. Spin at ~ 125 x g, for 5- 7 minutes at room temperature.
4. Resuspend cell pellet with the appropriate volume of complete medium and transfer the cell suspension into a T25 culture flask.
5. Incubate the culture at 37°, 5% CO2 incubator or refer to the specific culture condition, if possible.
