The antibody reacts with free soluble (17kDa) and membrane (26kDa) human TNF-alpha. The antibody inhibits the biological activity of both forms. It does not react with receptor bound TNF-alpha. It can be a useful tool to discriminate between the membrane form of TNF expressed on producer cells and the proteolytically cleaved, soluble TNF-alpha bound to its cognate cell membrane receptors (TNF-RI and TNF-RII).
Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab17357 in the following tested applications.
|IP||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
|Flow Cyt||Use at an assay dependent concentration. ab18434-Mouse monoclonal IgG1, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.|
|WB||Use at an assay dependent concentration. Detects a band of approximately 17, 26 kDa.|
|Neutralising||Use at an assay dependent concentration.
For neutralization of biological activity in vitro dilutions have to be made according to the amounts of TNF-alpha to be inactivated. Before use in biological assays, the product must be filter sterilized and depending on the concentration to be used dialyzed against culture medium to remove the sodium azide added.
