Product Concentration :

Background :
Tumor Necrosis Factor-Alpha (TNF-α) plays a major role in regulating growth, differentiation, inflammation, viral replication, tumorigenesis, and autoimmune diseases. TNF alpha-1a is a potent lymphoid factor that exerts cytotoxic effects on a wide range of tumor cells. In addition to inducing hemorrhagic necrosis of tumors, studies indicate TNF is involved in tumor igenesis, tumor metastasis, viral replication, septic shock, fever, inflammation, Crohn’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis and graft-versus-host disease.
