There are 2 types of soluble TNF receptors: sTNFR-I and sTNFR-II, which act to neutralize the biological activities of TNF alpha and TNF beta. The levels of these soluble receptors seem to increase as a result of shedding of the extracellular domains of the membrane bound receptors. High levels of soluble TNF receptors are found in the amniotic fluid of pregnant women. TNFR2 and TNFR1 form a heterocomplex which mediates the recruitment of 2 anti-apoptotic proteins, c-IAP1 and c-IAP2, which possess E3 ubiquitin ligase activity. IAPs’ function in TNF-receptor signaling is unknown; nevertheless, c-IAP1 is believed to potentiate TNF-induced apoptosis by the ubiquitination and degradation of TNF-receptor-associated factor 2, which mediates anti-apoptotic signals. Oxidative stress promotes TNFR1 and TNFR2 self-interaction, ligand-independent and enhanced ligand-dependent TNF signaling. TNF-a, TNFR1 and TNFR2 have roles in cellular differentiation. TNFR1 and TNFR2 function in cell type-specific renal injury.
TNFR2 Mouse Recombinant produced in E.coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 236 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 25.3kDa.
The TNFR2 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

The ED50 as determined by its ability to inhibit the TNF-a mediated cytotoxicity in the L-929 cells is less than 2µg/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of > 500IU/mg in the presence of 0.1ng/mL of rHuTNF-a.
