Bovine Tumour Necrosis Factor alpha (TNF alpha) is produced by a range of cells, including macrophages, monocytes, T and B lymphocytes. TNF alpha is an important mediator of the bovine inflammatory response.
Bovine Tumour Necrosis Factor alpha (PBP005) has an ED50 in the range of 10-25 ng/ml, determined by measuring the cytolytic effect of recombinant bovine TNF alpha on murine WEHI-13VAR cells in the presence of Actinomycin D.
Purified Recombinant Protein- lyophilised
Reconstitute with 0.5 ml distilled water.
Further dilutions should be made in a buffer containing carrier protein.
Care should be taken during reconstitution as the protein may appear as a film at the bottom of the vial. Bio-Rad recommend that the vial is gently mixed after reconstitution.
