Mouse (Mus musculus)
N/A; Due to limited knowledge and inability for testing each and every species, the reactivity of the antibody may extend to other species which are not listed hereby.
Specificity and cross-reactivity
Human TNF-alpha; Since it is not possible to test each and every species our knowledge on the corss reactivity of the antibodies is limited. This particular antibody might cross react with speacies outside of the listed ones.
Lyophilized from PBS. Reconstitute in sterile water to a concentration 1.0 mg/ml.
Storage and shipping
Store the antibody at -20 degrees Celsius until reconstitution. After it's reconstituted product may be stored at +4 degrees Celsius for short periods of time. For long term storage aliquot the antibody and keep at -20C. Avoid reeze/thaw cycles.
ELISA (EIA), Inhibition, Western Blot (WB)
The TNF alpha antibody is a α- or alpha protein sometimes glycoprotein present in blood.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by MBS Monoclonals they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
Tumor necrosis factor (TNFa, tumor necrosis factor alpha, TNFα, cachexin, or cachectin) is a cell signaling protein (cytokine) involved in systemic inflammation and is one of the cytokines that make up the acute phase reaction. It is produced chiefly by activated macrophages, although it can be produced by many other cell types such as CD4+ lymphocytes, NK cells, neutrophils, mast cells, eosinophils, and neurons. TNFb or TNF beta also bin on TNF receptors for Th1 activation.
