Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab109824 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
Neutralising Use a concentration of 0.1 - 0.2 µg/ml. to yield one-half maximal inhibition inhibition [ND50] of the biological activity of Human TWEAK (200 ng/ml)
WB Use a concentration of 0.1 - 0.2 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 27 kDa. The detection limit for recombinant Human TWEAK is 1.5 - 3.0 ng/lane, under either reducing or non-reducing conditions.
Indirect ELISA Use a concentration of 0.5 - 2 µg/ml. ab109824 allows the detection of at least 0.2 - 0.4 ng/well of recombinant Human TWEAK (using 100 µl/well antibody solution).
Sandwich ELISA Use a concentration of 0.5 - 2 µg/ml. Can be paired for Sandwich ELISA with Goat polyclonal to TWEAK (Biotin) (ab83437). ab109824 in conjunction with ab83437 as a detection antibody, allows the detection of at least 0.2 - 0.4 ng/well of recombinant Human TWEAK (using 100 µl/well antibody solution).


  • Function

    Binds to FN14 and possibly also to TNRFSF12/APO3. Weak inducer of apoptosis in some cell types. Mediates NF-kappa-B activation. Promotes angiogenesis and the proliferation of endothelial cells. Also involved in induction of inflammatory cytokines.
  • Tissue specificity

    Highly expressed in adult heart, pancreas, skeletal muscle, brain, colon, small intestine, lung, ovary, prostate, spleen, lymph node, appendix and peripheral blood lymphocytes. Low expression in kidney, testis, liver, placenta, thymus and bone marrow. Also detected in fetal kidney, liver, lung and brain.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the tumor necrosis factor family.
  • Post-translational

    The soluble form derives from the membrane form by proteolytic processing.
  • Cellular localization

    Secreted and Cell membrane.

Customer reviews and Q&As


Thank you for contacting us.

The immunogen sequence for antibody ab108924 is a E.coli expressed recombinant protein with sequence MKGRKTRARR AIAAHYEVHP RPGQDGAQAG VDGTVSGWEE ARINSSSPLR YNRQIGEFIV TRAGLYYLYC QVHFDEGKAV YLKLDLLVDG VLALRCLEEF SATAASSLGP QLRLCQVSGL LALRPGSSLR IRTLPWAHLK AAPFLTYFGL FQVH. This sequence is 92% similar with mouse sequence so it is most likely that ab109824 will cross react with the mouse species as well.

This anybody is tested in Functional assays on human cells so it is guaranteed. We however haven't tested this ab in mouse so human cells will be good positive control to try if you plan to use this product with mouse.

If you opt to use this ab in mouse then please do not forget to get a Abtrial discount code from me. Click the link for more details; https://www.abcam.com/index.html?pageconfig=resource&rid=11998&viapagetrap=collaborationdiscount
