TNF is secreted by macrophages, monocytes, neutrophils, T-cells, NK- cells following their stimulation by bacterial LPS. Cells expressing CD4 secrete TNF-alpha while CD8 cells secrete little or no TNF-alpha. The synthesis of TNF-alpha is induced by many different stimuli including interferons, IL2, GM-CSF. Recombinant Human Tumor Necrosis Factor-alpha is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide.
Peptides & proteins
TNFSF2, Cachectin, DIF, Necrosin, Cytotoxin, Cachexin, TNF
Produced using animal free raw components and processes, in a non-mammalian system. Ideal for researchers concerned about the risks and effects of contaminating viruses, prions and trace growth factors from FBS and animal-derived ingredients used in standard recombinant protein production techniques. Endotoxin levels are less than 1.0 EU per ug protein via LAL. Bioactivity is comparable to recombinant protein produced in traditional techniques.
