|Description||TNFRII is a member of the TNFR family of transmembrane proteins, and is expressed in immune cells and certain endothelial cells. It is a high affinity receptor for TNF-α but manifests a lower affinity to TNF-β. Signaling through this receptor regulates various biological processes including cell proliferation, differentiation, apoptosis, lipid metabolism, coagulation, and neurotransmission. Soluble TNFRII is capable of inhibiting TNF-α induced activities by acting as a decoy receptor. Recombinant human sTNFRII is an 18.9 kDa protein (174 amino acid residues) comprising the cysteine rich ligand binding portion of the extracellular domain of the TNFRII protein.|
|BiologicalActivity||Determined by its inhibitory effect of the TNF-α mediated cytotoxicity in murine L-929 cells. The ED50 for this effect in the presence of 0.25 ng/ml of recombinant human TNF-α, is 0.125 µg/ml.|
|Authenticity||Verified by N-terminal and Mass Spectrometry analyses (when applicable).|
|Endotoxin||Endotoxin level is <0.1 ng/ µg of protein (<1EU/ µg).|
|Protein Content||Verified by UV Spectroscopy and/or SDS-PAGE gel.|
|Precautions||Recombinant Human sTNF Receptor Type II is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
