Technical Data
ADAM 17, CT (A Disintegrin And Metalloproteinase 17, TNF-a Converting Enzyme, TACE, TNF alpha Converting Enzyme, CD156b)
ADAM-17, which is also known as CD156b, is expressed in a wide range of cells in culture. Its biological role is to convert the transmembrane trimeric form of TNF alpha to the soluble form. CD156 is also reported to process a number of other proteins, including L-selectin and TNF p75 receptor.

Suitable for use in Western Blot. Other applications have not been tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
Western Blot: 1:500
Optimal dilutions to be determined by researcher.
