Recombinant Human Tumor Necrosis Factor-α (TNF) is a bioactive protein intended for use in cell culture applications. TNF causes cytolysis and cytostasis of many tumor cell lines. TNF has a wide spectrum of activities, including chemotaxis of neutrophils, alteration of the endothelium, inhibition of anticoagulatory mechanisms, and promotion of angiogenesis.

—Gibco® proteins bioassayed with Gibco® mediaHigh Purity Recombinant Bioactive Protein
Recombinant Human Tumor Necrosis Factor-α is one of more than 250 Gibco® recombinant proteins available from Life Technologies. To help ensure Gibco® growth factors are of the highest quality, each protein is analyzed for purity along with structural homogeneity to ensure a biologically active protein.High Biological Activity
In-house activity testing of Gibco® Recombinant Proteins includes cell proliferation, cytotoxicity, chemotaxis, calcium flux, secondary cytokine up-regulation, induction of surface antigen expression, antiviral, and protease assays. Recombinant Human Tumor Necrosis Factor-α (TNF) specific activity is determined by the dose dependent cytotoxic effect on L929 cells in the presence of actinomycin D.Proven Compatibility
Gibco® proteins are bioassayed with Gibco® media. Since 1962, Gibco® has been the consistent provider of high quality media, reagents, and sera for reliable cell culture.See our selection of recombinant Gibco® growth factors
