Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab50716 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
Indirect ELISA Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml.
Neutralising Use at an assay dependent dilution. The ND50 of the antibody is defined as the concentration of antibody resulting in a one-half maximal inhibition of bioactivity of recombinant, human TGF-b1 when the cytokine is present at a concentration just high enough to elicit a maximum response.
WB Use a concentration of 2 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 44 kDa.


  • Function
    Multifunctional protein that controls proliferation, differentiation and other functions in many cell types. Many cells synthesize TGFB1 and have specific receptors for it. It positively and negatively regulates many other growth factors. It plays an important role in bone remodeling as it is a potent stimulator of osteoblastic bone formation, causing chemotaxis, proliferation and differentiation in committed osteoblasts.
  • Tissue specificity
    Highly expressed in bone. Abundantly expressed in articular cartilage and chondrocytes and is increased in osteoarthritis (OA). Co-localizes with ASPN in chondrocytes within OA lesions of articular cartilage.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in TGFB1 are the cause of Camurati-Engelmann disease (CE) [MIM:131300]; also known as progressive diaphyseal dysplasia 1 (DPD1). CE is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by hyperostosis and sclerosis of the diaphyses of long bones. The disease typically presents in early childhood with pain, muscular weakness and waddling gait, and in some cases other features such as exophthalmos, facial paralysis, hearing difficulties and loss of vision.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the TGF-beta family.
  • Post-translational
    The precursor is cleaved into mature TGF-beta-1 and LAP, which remains non-covalently linked to mature TGF-beta-1 rendering it inactive.
  • Cellular localization
    Secreted > extracellular space > extracellular matrix.
