Introduction

TNF-b is a potent multifunctional cytokine produced mainly by activated T and B lymphocytes. The protein has been shown to have a specific potent cytotoxic activity on tumor cells and a variety of other target cells as well as being a mediator of inflammation and immune function.

Description

TNF-b Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 192 amino acids (35-205 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 20.9kDa.
TNF-b is fused to a 21 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Source

Escherichia Coli.

Physical Appearance

Sterile Filtered clear solution.

Formulation

TNF-b protein solution (0.25mg/ml) contains 20mM Tris-HCl buffer (pH8.0), 30% glycerol, 0.1M NaCl and 1mM DTT.
