This antibody reacts with the dimeric (25 kDa) and monomeric (12.5 kDa) forms of TGF-beta under both non-reducing and reducing conditions. In ELISA applications, this antibody recognizes both human platelet-derived and recombinant TGF-beta.
This antibody neutralizes TGF-beta activity in vitro in an inhibition assay of CCL/64 cell growth, and neutralizes the growth promoting action of TGF-beta in the NRK-49F colony forming assay. The effect of microinjection of this antibody into one blastomere of two cell stage Xenopus embryos indicated that it was able to neutralize effectively the bioactivity of TGF-beta in vivo.
In IHC applications, this antibody has been used to demonstrate TGF-beta in ovine ovarian tissue and human breast carcinoma. As a consequence of the intense staining of the erythrocytes, it is possible to locate a single cell within the ovarian stroma making it useful in locating very fine capillary networks within tissue.
TGF beta (Transforming Growth Factor beta) is a multifunctional peptide that controls proliferation, differentiation and other functions in many cell types.
