Heat-mediated antigen retrieval using a sodium citrate buffer (pH 6.0) is recommended for the staining of paraffin sections. This antibody may be used in Western Blotting applications under either reducing or non-reducing conditions.
Reconstitute with 0.1 ml of distilled water. For long term storage the addition of 0.09% sodium azide is recommended (unless the product will be used for functional studies). Prior to reconstitution, store at 4°C. After reconstitution, store undiluted at -20°C, avoiding freeze/thaw cycles.
Transforming growth factors (TGFs) are biologically active polypeptides that reversibly confer the transformed phenotype on cultured cells. TGF-alpha shows about 40% sequence homology with epidermal growth factor (EGF; MIM 131530) and competes with EGF for binding to the EGF receptor ., stimulating its phosphorylation and producing a mitogenic response.
