MA5-17186 targets TGFb1 in FACS, IHC, pep-ELISA, and WB applications and shows reactivity with Human samples.
The MA5-17186 immunogen is purified recombinant fragment of human TGFb1 (amino acids: 62-195) expressed in E. Coli.
MA5-17186 detects TGFb1 which has a predicted molecular weight of approximately 44.3kDa.
This gene encodes a member of the transforming growth factor beta (TGFB) family of cytokines, which are multifunctional peptides that regulate proliferation, differentiation, adhesion, migration, and other functions in many cell types. Many cells have TGFB receptors, and the protein positively and negatively regulates many other growth factors. The secreted protein is cleaved into a latency-associated peptide (LAP) and a mature TGFB1 peptide, and is found in either a latent form composed of a TGFB1 homodimer, a LAP homodimer, and a latent TGFB1-binding protein, or in an active form composed of a TGFB1 homodimer. The mature peptide may also form heterodimers with other TGFB family members. This gene is frequently upregulated in tumor cells, and mutations in this gene result in Camurati-Engelmann disease
