TACE Antibody

TACE Antibody

Catalog# : 1131

Tumor-necrosis factor-a is a proinflammatory cytokine and contributes to a variety of inflammatory disease responses and programmed cell death. TNF-alpha is synthesized as a 26K type II membrane-bound precursor that is cleaved by a convertase to generate secreted 17K mature TNF-alpha. TNF-alpha converting enzyme (TACE) protein was recently purified and the human and mouse TACE cDNAs were cloned by several groups separately. TACE is a membrane-bound metalloprotease-disintegrin in the family of mammalian ADAM (for a disintegrin and metalloprotease). TACE also processes other cell surface proteins, including TNF receptor, TGFa, the L-selectin adhesion molecule, and alpha-cleavage of amyloid protein precursor (APP) (4,5). TACE mRNA is expressed in a variety of human and murine tissues. TACE was selected as one of the few targets in cytokine activation by the Eighth International Conference of the Inflammation Research Association.

Other Product Images
Source : TACE antibody was raised against a peptide corresponding to amino acids near the carboxy terminus of human TACE This sequence differs from those of mouse and rat TACE by one amino acid.

Purification : Affinity chromatography purified via peptide column

Clonality and Clone : This is a polyclonal antibody.

Host : TACE antibody was raised in rabbit. Please use anti-rabbit secondary antibodies.

Immunogen : Human TACE (C-Terminus) Peptide (Cat. No. 1131P)

Application : TACE antibody can be used for detection of TACE by Western blot at 1:500 to 1:2000 dilution. 80 to 130 kDa bands can be detected, which may represent mature protein, precursor, and glycosylated TACE.

Tested Application(s) : E, WB, ICC

Buffer : Antibody is supplied in PBS containing 0.02% sodium azide.

Blocking Peptide : Cat. No. 1131P - TACE Peptide

Long-Term Storage : TACE antibody can be stored at 4ºC, stable for one year. As with all antibodies care should be taken to avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. Antibodies should not be exposed to prolonged high temperatures.
