Detects human TNF-alpha in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In direct ELISAs, approximately 25‑50% cross‑reactivity with recombinant porcine TNF‑ alpha and recombinant rhesus macaque TNF-alpha is observed but no cross-reactivity with recombinant cotton rat TNF‑ alpha, recombinant rat TNF‑ alpha, recombinant human (rh) LT alpha 1/ beta 2, rhLT alpha 2/ beta 1, rhAPRIL, rhBAFF, rhEDA‑A2, recombinant mouse EDA, rhFas Ligand, rhLIGHT, rhOX40 Ligand, rhTRAIL, rhTRANCE, rhTWEAK, or rhVEGI is observed.
Monoclonal Mouse IgG1 Clone # 6401
Protein A or G purified from ascites
E. coli-derived recombinant human TNF-alpha Gly57-Leu233 (predicted) Accession # P01375
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 TNF‑ alpha -induced cytotoxicity in the L‑929 mouse fibroblast cell line. Matthews, N. and M.L. Neale (1987) in Lymphokines and Interferons, A Practical Approach. Clemens, M.J. et al. (eds): IRL Press. 221. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 0.015-0.06 µg/mL in the presence of 0.25 ng/mL Recombinant Human TNF‑ alpha and 1 µg/mL actinomycin D.
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.
Cytotoxicity Induced by TNF‑ alpha and Neutralization by Human TNF‑ alpha Antibody. Recombinant Human TNF‑ alpha (Catalog # 210‑TA) induces cytotoxicity in the L‑929 mouse fibroblast cell line in a dose-dependent manner (orange line). Cytotoxicity elicited by Recombinant Human TNF‑ alpha (0.25 ng/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Human TNF‑ alpha Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB2101). The ND50 is typically 0.015-0.06 µg/mL in the presence of the metabolic inhibitor actinomycin D (1 µg/mL).

TNF-alpha is a trimeric glycoprotein active in both membrane bound and secreted forms. TNF-alpha is produced by several lymphoid cells as well as by astrocytes, endothelial cells, and smooth muscle cells. TNF-alpha binds to TNF RI and TNF RII present on virtually all cell types where it triggers the activation of multiple signal transduction pathways and modulates the expression of a wide variety of genes.
