|Application ||WB, E|
|Other Accession||P48030, Q06922, P01134|
|Predicted||Mouse, Pig, Rat|
|Calculated MW||17006 Da|
|Other Names||Protransforming growth factor alpha, Transforming growth factor alpha, TGF-alpha, EGF-like TGF, ETGF, TGF type 1, TGFA|
|Target/Specificity||This TGFA antibody is generated from a rabbit immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 118-150 amino acids from the human region of human TGFA.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||TGFA Antibody (C-Term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||TGF alpha is a mitogenic polypeptide that is able to bind to the EGF receptor/EGFR and to act synergistically with TGF beta to promote anchorage-independent cell proliferation in soft agar.|
|Cellular Location||Transforming growth factor alpha: Secreted, extracellular space|
|Tissue Location||Isoform 1, isoform 3 and isoform 4 are expressed in keratinocytes and tumor-derived cell lines|
