Rat TNF alpha ELISA kit is designed for analysing quantitative amounts of rat tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-a, TNF-alpha) using cell culture supernatant. This assay has a minimum sensitivity detection limit of 10.0 pg/ml.
Tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha, TNF-a, TNF alpha) is a potent lymphoid factor which is approx. 17.5kDa in size and is composed of 157 amino acids. TNF-alpha play a major role as a pro-inflammatory factor, it can also exert cytotoxic effects on many tumor cells and has been found to be present in the synovial fluids of rheumatoid arthritis patients. TNF-a biosynthesis is tightly regulated where it is produced in small amounts in quiescent cells, but secreted in large quantities in cells that are activated.
The minimum sensitivity detection limit of tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-a) using current rat TNF alpha ELISA kit is 10.0 pg/ml. The dynamic range for this assay is 56.0 – 3,600.0 pg/ml. It has the ability to detect both recombinant and native rat TNF-alpha.
