Technical Data
TWEAK (TNF-related Weak Inducer of Apoptosis, APO3 Ligand, APO3/DR3 Ligand, APO3L, CD255, DR3LG, FN14, HCG1991317, MGC129581, MGC20669, Tumor Necrosis Factor Ligand Superfamily Member 12, TNFSF12, UNQ181/PRO207) (Liquid)
TNF-related weak inducer of apoptosis (TWEAK) is a member of the tumor necrosis factor superfamily (TNFSF) of structurally related cytokines. Like most other members of this family, TWEAK is a cell surface-associated type II transmembrane protein although a smaller, biologically active form can also be generated by cleavage near the cell membrane. TWEAK has multiple biological activities, including stimulation of cell growth and angiogenesis, induction of inflammatory cytokines, in addition to stimulation of apoptosis. The TWEAK signal transduction pathway has not been well established but it appears to signal via TweakR/Fn14 in a manner similar to that described for other TNFSF members that bind receptors lacking death domains.

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

Recommended Dilutions:
Direct ELISA: 0.5ug/ml using 100ul/well antibody solution detects 0.2-0.4ng/well of recombinant human TWEAK.
Western Blot:0.1-0.2ug/ml detects 1.5-3.0ng/lane, under either reducing or or non-reducing conditions.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for 12 months after receipt. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
