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.
Rabbit anti human TGFα recognizes tranforming growth factor alpha.
TGFalpha (aa 50) is a growth factor with 33% homology to EGF, binds to EGFR, activates tyrosine phosphorylation of the receptor, and stimulates cell proliferation. It plays a role in tumor initiation by inducing the reversible transformed phenotype.
