Tumor Necrosis Factor-b Human Recombinant (Lymphotoxin) produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 172 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 18645 Dalton. The TNF-b is purified by standard chromatographic techniques.
Lymphotoxin alpha, a member of the tumor necrosis factor family, is a cytokine produced by lymphocytes. LTA is highly inducible, secreted, and exists as homotrimeric molecule. LTA forms heterotrimers with lymphotoxin-beta which anchors lymphotoxin-alpha to the cell surface. LTA mediates a large variety of inflammatory, immunostimulatory, and antiviral responses. LTA is also involved in the formation of secondary lymphoid organs during development and plays a role in apoptosis.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
Lyophilized protein with no additives.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Tumor Necrosis Factor-beta in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Lyophilized Tumor Necrosis Factor-b althoµgh stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution TNF-b 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.
