Mouse anti Sheep TNF alpha, clone VPM62 recognizes Ovine tumor necrosis factor (TNF) alpha, a 17.5kDa cytokine expressed by many different stimulated cell types including monocytes, macrophages, endothelial cells, fibroblasts and both T and B-lymphocytes.
The production of TNF alpha is induced by a variety of factors, dependant upon cell type and includes bacterial toxins, IL-1, PDGF, IFN beta, NGF, oncostatin M and viral infections. The presence of TNF alpha is responsible for diverse immunomodulatory, anti-tumor and toxic effects and under certain conditions is also capable of self-stimulation and inhibition.
