Lymphotoxin-α (LT-α), also known as tumor necrosis factor-beta (TNF-β), is a potent lymphoid factor that exerts cytotoxic effects on a wide range of tumor cells and certain other target cells. LT-α possesses a signal peptide sequence and is a secreted protein; however, LT-α is also present on the surface of activated T, B and LAK cells as a complex with LT-β. Bioactive LT-α exists as a homotrimer.

ELISA Capture - Quality tested

Recommended Usage

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by ELISA assay. For ELISA capture applications, a concentration range of 1-4 µg/ml is recommended. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

Application Notes

ELISA or ELISPOT Capture1,2: The purified 359-238-8 antibody is useful as the capture antibody in a sandwich ELISA or ELISPOT assay, when used in conjunction with the biotinylated 359-81-11 antibody (Cat. No. 503104) as the detecting antibody. The LEAF™ purified antibody is suggested for ELISPOT capture.
Neutralization1,2: The 359-238-8 antibody can neutralize the bioactivity of human LT-α. The LEAF™ purified antibody (Endotoxin <0.1 EU/μg, Azide-Free, 0.2 μm filtered) is recommended for neutralization of human LT-α bioactivity (Cat. No. 503004).
