Technical Data

Type

Recombinant protein

Description

Tumor Necrosis Factor-a Rat Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 157 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 17339.44 Dalton. The TNF-alpha is purified by standard chromatographic techniques.

Amino Acid Sequence

The sequence of the first five N-terminal amino acids was determined and was found to be Met-Leu-Arg-Ser-Ser.

Source

E. coli

Purity

Greater than 97.0% as determined by: (a) Analysis by RP-HPLC. (b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.

Biological Activity

The ED50 as determined by the cytolysis of murine L929 cells in the presence of Actinomycin D is < 0.05 ng/ml, corresponding to a Specific Activity of 5×107 IU/mg.

Formulation

The protein was lyophilized with no additives.

Shipping

At ambient temperature. Upon receipt, store the product at the temperature recommended below.

Storage/Expiration

Lyophilized Tumor Necrosis Factor-a although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below –18°C. Upon reconstitution TNF-a 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.

Physical Appearance

Sterile filtered white lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.

Summary

Research topic

Summary

TNF-α (17.5 kDa, 157 amino acid) is a non-glycosylated protein that is a potent lymphoid factor, which exerts cytotoxic effects on a wide range of tumor cells and other target cells. It is secreted by macrophages, monocytes, neutrophils, T-cells and NK-cells following their stimulation by bacterial lipopolysaccha­rides. TNF-α has been suggested to play a pro-inflammatory role and has been detected in synovial fluid of patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
