Novus' biologically active proteins are stringently purified to provide only the safest and most highly effective proteins available. This protein was expressed in E. coli, purified by HPLC, QC tested by SDS-PAGE and Western Blot and validated on appropriate cell lines for bioactivity. All HPLC and bioactivity data is provided for your assurance.
|Details of Functionality
TNF alpha Protein is fully biologically active when compared to standard. The ED50 as determined by a cytotoxicity assay using murine L929 cells is less than 0.05 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of > 2.0 x 10^7 IU/mg in the presence of actinomycin D.
| Protein/Peptide Type
Biologically Active Protein
> 98 % pure by SDS-PAGE and HPLC
Less than 1 EU/ug of endotoxin as determined by LAL method.
Disclaimer note: The observed molecular weight of the protein may vary from the listed predicted molecular weight due to post translational modifications, post translation cleavages, relative charges, and other experimental factors.
Packaging, Storage & Formulations
Store at -20 to -70C as supplied. After reconstitution, store at 2 to 8C for 1 month and at -20 to -70C for long term storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Lyophilized from a 0.2 um filtered concentrated solution in 20 mM PB, pH 7.2, 150 mM NaCl.
> 98 % pure by SDS-PAGE and HPLC
Reconstitute with sterilized distilled water or 0.1% BSA aqueous buffer to a final concentration of 0.1 - 1.0 mg/ml.
This lyophilized preparation is stable at 2-8 degrees C, but should be kept at -20 degrees C for long term storage, preferably desiccated. Upon reconstitution, the preparation is most stable at -20 to -80 degrees C, and can be stored for one week at 2-8 degrees C. For maximal stability, apportion the reconstituted preparation into working aliquots and store at -20 degrees C to -80 degrees C. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.

Tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha), also called cachectin, is the best-know member of the TNF-family, which can cause cell death. This protein is produced by neutrophils, activated lymphocytes, macrophages, NK cells, LAK cells, astrocytes endothelial cells, smooth muscle cells and some transformed cells. TNF-alpha occurs as a secreted, soluble form and as a membrane-anchored form, both of which are biologically active. The naturally-occurring form of TNF-alpha is glycosylated, but non-glycosylated recombinant TNF-alpha has comparable biological activity. Two types of receptors for TNF-alpha have been described and virtually all cell types studied show the presence of one or both of these receptor types.
