TNF-β, a member of the tumor necrosis factor family, is a potent lymphoid factor that exerts cytotoxic effects on a wide range of tumor cells. The biological effects of TNF-β are very similar to TNF-α, due to the similarity of molecular structure and the receptors. As reported, TNF-β could inhibit the proliferation and induce necrosis of A549 cells, and the concentration of IL-1β in cell supernatant will increase after stimulation. Therefore, A549 cells were incubated in DMEM with TNF-β (10 ng/ml) for 8h, 24h, 48h, 72h, then cells were observed by inverted microscope.
Lyophilized from 20 mM Tris (pH 8.0) with 150 mM NaCl, 1 mM EDTA, 1 mM DTT, 0.01% SKL, 5% Trehalose, Proclin300. Reconstitute with 20 mM Tris and 150 mM NaCl (pH 8.0) to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL. Do not vortex.
For short-term storage (1-2 weeks), store at 4ºC. For long-term storage, store at -20ºC or below. After reconstitution, keep as concentrated solution.Avoid freeze-thaw cycles.

The encoded protein, a member of the tumor necrosis factor family, is a cytokine produced by lymphocytes. The protein is highly inducible, secreted, and forms heterotrimers with lymphotoxin-beta which anchor lymphotoxin-alpha to the cell surface. This protein also mediates a large variety of inflammatory, immunostimulatory, and antiviral responses, is involved in the formation of secondary lymphoid organs during development and plays a role in apoptosis. Genetic variations in this gene are associated with susceptibility to leprosy type 4, myocardial infarction, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, and psoriatic arthritis. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been observed for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2012]
