TNF-alpha is a homotrimer with a subunit molecular mass of 17 kD cytokine that binds to TNFRSF1A/TNFR1 and TNFRSF1B/TNFBR. TNF-alpha is mainly secreted by macrophages and can induce cell death of certain tumor cell lines. It plays a major role in growth regulation; differentiation; inflammation; viral replication; tumorigenesis; autoimmune diseases and in viral; bacterial; fungal; and parasitic infections. TNF has now been discovered to promote tumor progression, metastasis, viral replication, septic shock, fever, inflammation, and autoimmune diseases including Crohn's disease, rheumatoid arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis as well as graft-versus-host disease. Human TNF-alpha/TNFA Recombinant Protein is a highly pure recombinant protein developed by Assay Genie for use in a range of applications.
Human TNF-alpha/TNFA Recombinant Protein (RPES4122)
Measured in a cytotoxicity assay using L?929 mouse fibroblast cells in the presence of the metabolic inhibitor actinomycin D. The ED50 for this effect is 10-50 pg/ml.
<1.0 EU per µg as determined by the LAL method.
Recombinant Human TNF-alpha is produced by our E.coli expression system and the target gene encoding Val77-Leu233 is expressed.
> 95% as determined by reducing SDS-PAGE.
