Back to top
TGFα (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.

Host Species: Mouse

Clone: MF9

Isotype: IgG1/κ

Species Reactivity: Human, Cow, Rat and Mouse. Others not known.

Epitope: C-terminal

Immunogen: A 17-amino acid synthetic peptide from the carboxyl-terminus of rat TGFα

Molecular Weight: 6kDa

Positive Control: Recombinant TGFα protein, A2058 cells

Cellular Localization: Cytoplasmic Ab-1 shows no cross-reaction with EGF and the neuropeptide synenkephalin. Ab-1 is excellent for staining of formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissues. The staining with Ab-1 is completely blocked by the peptide used for raising this antibody.
