TNF causes apoptotic cell death, cellular proliferation, differentiation, inflammation, tumorigenesis and viral replication, TNF is also involved in lipid metabolism, and coagulation. TNF's primary role is in the regulation of immune cells.
Dysregulation and, in particular, overproduction of TNF have been implicated in a variety of human diseases- autoimmune diseases, insulin resistance, and cancer.
Tumor Necrosis Factor-α Human Recombinant His produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 164 amino acids fragment and having a molecular mass of 18.3kDa with an N-terminal hexahistidine tag. The TNF-alpha His is purified by standard chromatographic techniques.
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered concentrated solution in PBS, pH 7.0.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized TNF-α in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Lyophilized TNF-α although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution TNF-α should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 97.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE and HPLC analyses.
