|Synonyms||Tumor necrosis factor, Cachectin, TNF-alpha, Tumor necrosis factor ligand superfamily member 2, TNF-a, TNF, TNFA, TNFSF2.|
|Description||Tumor Necrosis Factor-Alpha (TNF-α) plays a major role in regulating growth, differentiation, inflammation, viral replication, tumorigenesis, and autoimmune disease. TNF alpha-1a is a potent lymphoid factor that exerts cytotoxic effects on a wide range of tumor cells. In addition to inducing hemorrhagic necrosis of tumors, studies indicate TNF is involved in certain types of tumorigenesis, tumor metastasis, viral replication, septic shock, fever, inflammation, Crohn's disease, rheumatoid arthritis and graft-versus-host disease.
Recombinant Rhesus Macaque TNF-α produced in E. coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 157 amino acids. A fully biologically active molecule, Recombinant Rhesus Macaque TNF-α has a molecular mass of 17.4 kDa analyzed by reducing SDS-PAGE and is obtained by chromatographic techniques at GenScript.
