Growth Factors, Cytokines Storage: -70CShipping: Blue Ice
TNF is secreted by macrophages, monocytes, neutrophils, T-cells, NK-cells following their stimulation by bacterial LPS. Cells expressing CD4 secrete TNF-alpha while CD8 cells secrete little or no TNF-alpha. The synthesis of TNF-alpha is induced by many different stimuli including interferons, IL2, GM-CSF.

Endotoxin: <0.01ng/ug or <0.1EU/ug as per LAL

Biological Activity: recombinant Tumor Necrosis Factor-alpha is fully biologically active when compared to standard. The ED50 as determined by the cytolysis of murine L929 cells in the presence of Actinomycin D is less then 0.05ng/ml, corresponding to a Specific Activity of 2x107IU/mg.
