TNF-alpha is a multifunctional proinflammatory cytokine that belongs to the tumor necrosis factor (TNF) superfamily and it is secreted predominantly by monocytes/macrophages that have effects on lipid metabolism, coagulation, insulin resistance, and endothelial function (1).TNF-alpha is involved in the regulation of a wide spectrum of biological processes including cell proliferation, differentiation, apoptosis, lipid metabolism, and coagulation and implicated in a variety of diseases. TNF-alpha also participates in the homeostatic activity-dependent regulation of synaptic connectivity and play roles in synaptic plasticity and modulating responses to neural injury (2).

Storage, Stability and Shipping:
Stored at desiccated below -20oC. It is stable at 4oC between 2-7 days. For long term storage, aliquot target into smaller quantities after centrifugation and store at recommended temperature. For most favorable performance, avoid repeated handling and multiple freeze/thaw cycles.
Less than 0.1 ng/ug (IEU/ug) of TNF-alpha.
