FunctionCytokine that binds to TNFRSF1A/TNFR1 and TNFRSF1B/TNFBR. It is mainly secreted by macrophages and can induce cell death of certain tumor cell lines. It is potent pyrogen causing fever by direct action or by stimulation of interleukin-1 secretion and is implicated in the induction of cachexia, Under certain conditions it can stimulate cell proliferation and induce cell differentiation.
Involvement in diseaseGenetic variations in TNF are a cause of susceptibility psoriatic arthritis (PSORAS) [MIM:607507]. PSORAS is an inflammatory, seronegative arthritis associated with psoriasis. It is a heterogeneous disorder ranging from a mild, non-destructive disease to a severe, progressive, erosive arthropathy. Five types of psoriatic arthritis have been defined: asymmetrical oligoarthritis characterized by primary involvement of the small joints of the fingers or toes; asymmetrical arthritis which involves the joints of the extremities; symmetrical polyarthritis characterized by a rheumatoidlike pattern that can involve hands, wrists, ankles, and feet; arthritis mutilans, which is a rare but deforming and destructive condition; arthritis of the sacroiliac joints and spine (psoriatic spondylitis).
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the tumor necrosis factor family.
modificationsThe soluble form derives from the membrane form by proteolytic processing.
The membrane form, but not the soluble form, is phosphorylated on serine residues. Dephosphorylation of the membrane form occurs by binding to soluble TNFRSF1A/TNFR1.
O-glycosylated; glycans contain galactose, N-acetylgalactosamine and N-acetylneuraminic acid.
Cellular localizationSecreted and Cell membrane.

ab6671 staining TNF alpha in Human testis & colon CA tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P - paraformaldehyde-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue was fixed with formaldehyde and blocked with 3% H2O2 for 10 minutes at 25°C; antigen retrieval was by heat mediation using EDTA, pH9, 100C, 20 min. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/75) for 20 minutes at 25°C. An undiluted HRP polymer-conjugated Goat anti-mouse anti-rabbit polyclonal was used as the secondary antibody.
ab6671 staining TNF alpha in Guinea pig Lung and heart cells by ICC/IF (Immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescence). Cells were fixed with formalin and blocked with 1% BSA for 1 hour at 25°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/100 in 1% BSA in PBST) for 18 hours at 4°C. An Alexa Fluor® 555-conjugated Donkey anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) polyclonal (1/800) was used as the secondary antibody.
ab6671 staining TNF alpha in Cynomolgus Monkey dendritic cells/macrophages from inlamed skin tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P - paraformaldehyde-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue was fixed with formaldehyde and blocked with 10% serum for 20 minutes at room temperature; antigen retrieval was by heat mediation in citrate buffer, pH6.0. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/100) for 30 minutes at room temperature. A Biotin-conjugated Goat anti-rabbit IgG polyclonal (1/2000) was used as the secondary antibody.

Western Blot analysis, labelling TNF-alpha with ab6671 at 1/1000. Blocking was with 1% BSA in TBS-T incubated for 30 minutes at room temperature. The Cleavage Fragment is related to the soluble isoform 77 - 223.
ab6671 staining human artery tissue sections by IHC-P. Sections were fixed in formaldehyde and subjected to heat mediated antigen retrieval in citrate buffer (pH 6.0) prior to blocking with 1.5% serum for 10 minutes. The primary antibody was diluted 1/100 and incubated with the sample for 24 hours at 4°C. An HRP-conjugated goat anti-rabbit antibody was used as the secondary.
