Recombinant Human TWEAK R/TNFRSF12 Fc Chimera Protein, CF Summary

Purity
>90%, by SDS-PAGE visualized with Silver Staining and quantitative densitometry by Coomassie® Blue Staining.
Endotoxin Level
<0.10 EU per 1 μg of the protein by the LAL method.
Activity
Measured by its ability to inhibit the TWEAK-dependent proliferation of HUVEC human umbilical vein endothelial cells. The ED50 for this effect is 10-30 ng/mL in the presence of 15 ng/mL recombinant human TWEAK.

Product Datasheets

Carrier Free

What does CF mean?

CF stands for Carrier Free (CF). We typically add Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) as a carrier protein to our recombinant proteins. Adding a carrier protein enhances protein stability, increases shelf-life, and allows the recombinant protein to be stored at a more dilute concentration. The carrier free version does not contain BSA.

What formulation is right for me?

In general, we advise purchasing the recombinant protein with BSA for use in cell or tissue culture, or as an ELISA standard. In contrast, the carrier free protein is recommended for applications, in which the presence of BSA could interfere.

Background: TWEAK R/TNFRSF12

The gene for TNF-related weak inducer of apoptosis receptor (TWEAK R) was originally identified as a fibroblast growth factor-inducible immediate-early response gene Fn14 in mouse NIH 3T3 fibroblasts (1, 2). Human TWEAK R cDNA encodes a 129 amino acid (aa) residue type I transmembrane protein with a 27 aa signal peptide, a 53 aa extracellular domain, a 21 aa transmembrane domain and a 28 aa cytoplasmic domain (1 - 3). Human and mouse TWEAK R share 82% aa sequence identity. TWEAK R is the smallest member of the TNF receptor superfamily and contains only one cysteine-rich region in its extracellular domain. The TWEAK R cytoplasmic domain conatins one TRAF binding motif which binds TRAFs 1, 2, and 3. TWEAK R binds its ligand TWEAK/TNFSF12 with high affinity to initiate a signal transduction cascade that depending upon the cell type, may lead to a variety of cellular responses including cell death, cell proliferation, and angiogenesis (2 - 6). In new born mice, TWEAK R is highly expressed in all tissues examined (heart, intestine, kidney, liver, lung and skin) (1). In adult mice, high TWEAK R expression levels are found in the heart and ovary, while lower expression levels are detected in the lung, kidney, skin. Elevated levels of TWEAK R mRNA were found in human or mouse hepatocellular carcinoma specimens, in regenerating mouse liver and in injured rat arteries (2, 3).
