Detects human LAP in direct ELISAs and Western blots.
Monoclonal Mouse IgG1 Clone # 27235
Protein A or G purified from ascites
S. frugiperda insect ovarian cell line Sf 21-derived recombinant human LAP (TGF-beta 1)
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS with Trehalose. *Small pack size (SP) is supplied as a 0.2 µm filtered solution in PBS.
<0.10 EU per 1 μg of the antibody by the LAL method.
Measured by its ability to neutralize LAP TGF‑ beta 1 inhibition of TGF‑ beta 1 growth inhibition in the HT‑2 mouse T cell line. Tsang, M. et al. (1995) Cytokine 7:389. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 1-5 µg/mL in the presence of 500 ng/mL Recombinant Human LAP TGF‑ beta 1 and 1 ng/mL Recombinant Human TGF‑ beta 1.
Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application. General Protocols are available in the Technical Information section on our website.
LAP TGF‑ beta 1 Inhibition of TGF‑ beta 1 Activity and Neutralization by Human LAP TGF‑ beta 1 Antibody. Recombinant Human LAP TGF‑ beta 1 (Catalog # 246-LP) inhibits Recombinant Human TGF‑ beta 1 (Catalog # 240-B) growth inhibition activity in the HT‑2 mouse T cell line in a dose-dependent manner (orange line). Inhibition of Recombinant Human TGF‑ beta 1 (1 ng/mL) activity elicited by Recombinant Human LAP TGF‑ beta 1 (500 ng/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Human LAP TGF‑ beta 1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB246). The ND50 is typically 1-5 µg/mL.

Background: LAP (TGF-beta 1)
The TGF-beta family includes several related proteins (70-80% sequence homology) from mammalian, avian, or Xenopus systems that are now designated TGF-beta 1, TGF‑ beta 2, TGF-beta 1.2, TGF-beta 3, TGF-beta 4, and TGF-beta 5. These proteins are secreted by cells in the form of an inactive complex, referred to as latent TGF-beta, that consists of TGF-beta associated non-covalently with a Latency-associated peptide (LAP). These two proteins are synthesized as a single pro-peptide that is cleaved in a post Golgi compartment prior to secretion. Different TGF-beta family members are naturally associated with their own distinct LAPs.
