Technical Data
Transforming Growth Factor beta 1 (TGFb1, TGF-beta-1, TGFB1, TGFB)
TGF-beta1 is a multifunctional protein that controls proliferation, differentiation and other functions in a wide range of cell types and both positively and negatively regulates many other growth factors. TGF-beta1 also plays an important role in bone remodelling through stimulation of oesteoblastic bone formation causing chemotaxis, proliferation and differentiation in committed osteoblasts. TGFB1 is synthesized by many cells and have specific receptors for it, and it is highly expressed in bone. Defects in TGFB1 are the cause of Camurati-Engelmann disease (CED), also known as progressive diaphyseal dysplasia 1 (DPD1).

Suitable for use in ELISA, Immunohistochemistry and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.
