Rabbit recombinant Tumor Necrosis Factor-a consists of three identical polypeptide chains of 158 amino acids combined to form a compact, bell-shaped homotrimer. TNF-alpha was produced in E.coli is a non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain having a molecular mass of 17.4 kDa for the individual subunit. Tumor necrosis factor is a cytokine involved in systemic inflammation and is a member of a group of cytokines that all stimulate the acute phase reaction. TNF is mainly secreted by macrophages. TNF causes apoptotic cell death, cellular proliferation, differentiation, inflammation, tumorigenesis and viral replication, TNF is also involved in lipid metabolism, and coagulation. TNF's primary role is in the regulation of immune cells. Dysregulation and, in particular, overproduction of TNF have been implicated in a variety of human diseases- autoimmune diseases, insulin resistance, and cancer.
