Detects TGF-beta 1 from human, mouse, rat, and other species in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In sandwich ELISAs, less than 2% cross‑reactivity with recombinant human (rh) TGF‑ beta 3 and recombinant amphibian TGF‑ beta 5 and no cross‑reactivity with recombinant porcine TGF-beta 2 or rhTGF-beta 2 is observed.

Detection of TGF‑ beta 1 in PC‑3 human prostate cancer cell line by Flow Cytometry. PC‑3 human prostate cancer cell line was stained with Mouse Anti-Human TGF‑ beta 1 PE-conjugated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # IC240P, filled histogram) or isotype control antibody (Catalog # IC002P, open histogram). To facilitate intracellular staining, cells were fixed with Flow Cytometry Fixation Buffer (Catalog # FC004) and permeabilized with Flow Cytometry Permeabilization/Wash Buffer I (Catalog # FC005).

Background: TGF-beta 1
TGF-beta 1, -2, and -3 are a closely related group of proteins (70-80% sequence homology) that are produced by many cell types and function as growth and differentiation factors. The active forms of TGF-beta 1, -2, and -3 are disulfide-linked homodimers.
