Anti-Rat TNF-alpha Rabbit IgG Antibody

Tumor necrosis factor (TNF, formerly known as TNF-alpha) is a proinflammatory cytokine secreted primarily by macrophages. TNF-alpha belongs to a group of cytokines that regulates the acute-phase response to injury. It is a membrane-integrated protein that normally exists as homotrimers in humans. TNF-alpha binds two receptors, TNF-R1 and TNF-R2. TNF-alpha activates three major signaling pathways, mediated by NF-kappaB, MAP kinases, and the death-signaling cascade. TNF-alpha is a pyrogen that causes fever by direct action or by stimulation of interleukin-1 (IL-1) secretion. It has been implicated in autoimmune diseases, insulin resistance, and cancer. TNF-alpha is also known as TNFA, tumor necrosis factor ligand superfamily member 2 (TNFSF2), DIF, APC1 protein, and cachectin.

This product is an affinity-purified IgG antibody that recognizes rat TNF-alpha protein. The antibody was raised in rabbit using a synthetic peptide and can be used for Western blot (WB) detection or immunohistochemical (IHC) detection of rat TNF-alpha protein.
