Proinflammatory cytokine tumor necrosis factor- (TNF- ) contributes to a variety of inflammatory responses and programmed cell death. Notch receptor and its ligand participate in cell fate decisions during vertebrate development and are associated with several human disorders, including a T-cell lymphoma. TNF- , notch and its ligand delta are all membrane-bond molecules, which are cleaved by proteases to release mature proteins or functional receptor. ADAM10, a metalloprotease-disintegrin in the family of mammalian ADAM (for a disintegrin and metalloprotease), was recently identified to cleave TNF- , notch and its ligand delta (1-3). The genes encoding human, mouse, and bovine ADAM10 were recently cloned and designated ADAM 10, kuzbanian (KUZ), and MADM, respectively, (1,2,4). ADAM10 mRNA is expressed in a variety of human and bovine tissues (1,4).

Detects ADAM10 by Western blot at 0.25 to 1 µg/ml. Detects an 85 kDa band can be detected in Jurkat cell lysates which may represent precursor protein. A faint 60 kDa band is also detected in some cell lines, including Jurkat, which may be processed mature protein. Optimal concentration should be evaluated by serial dilutions.

This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.Enzymes are cleaving the substrate. If the substrate is DNA they are called restriction enzymes. Activating enzymes will cut off the domain that is biological active to become functional.
Rabbits are used for polyclonal antibody production by nordc. Rabbit antibodies are very stable and can be stored for several days at room temperature. nordc adds sodium azide and glycerol to enhance the stability of the rabbit polyclonal antibodies. Anti-human, anti mouse antibodies to highly immunogenic selected peptide sequences are" monoclonal like" since the epitope to which they are directed is less than 35 amino acids long.
