  • 製品の概要

    As of June 6, 2019, Human TNF alpha SimpleStep ELISA® has been re-developed. We have identified new recombinant monoclonal antibodies to provide improved performance and consistency when quantifying TNF-alpha protein in human serum, plasma and culture media.

    The SimpleStep ELISA® employs an affinity tag labeled capture antibody and a reporter conjugated detector antibody which immunocapture the sample analyte in solution. This entire complex (capture antibody/analyte/detector antibody) is in turn immobilized via immunoaffinity of an anti-tag antibody coating the well. To perform the assay, samples or standards are added to the wells, followed by the antibody mix. After incubation, the wells are washed to remove unbound material. TMB substrate is added and during incubation is catalyzed by HRP, generating blue coloration. This reaction is then stopped by addition of Stop Solution completing any color change from blue to yellow. Signal is generated proportionally to the amount of bound analyte and the intensity is measured at 450 nm. Optionally, instead of the endpoint reading, development of TMB can be recorded kinetically at 600 nm.

  • 特記事項

    TNF-alpha, also known as cachectin or TNFSF1A, is the prototypic ligand of the TNF superfamily which plays a central role in inflammation, apoptosis, proliferation, invasion, angiogenesis, metastasis and morphogenesis. It is expressed on macrophages, endothelial, epithelial and tumor cells as a 26kDa transmembrane protein. TNF-alpha is cleaved by proteolytic processing into six chains: (1) TNF membrane form, (2) Intracellular domain 1, (3) Intracellular domain 2, (4) C-domain 1, (5) C-domain 2 and (6) TNF soluble form. Signaling from TNF-alpha differs depending on the type of ligand initiating the signaling event (intracellular, membrane or soluble). As an example, the membrane form of TNF-alpha appears to mediate anti-tumorigenic therapeutic responses whereas the soluble ligand is linked to inflammation and proliferation.

  • 研究分野

  • 機能

    Cytokine that binds to TNFRSF1A/TNFR1 and TNFRSF1B/TNFBR. It is mainly secreted by macrophages and can induce cell death of certain tumor cell lines. It is potent pyrogen causing fever by direct action or by stimulation of interleukin-1 secretion and is implicated in the induction of cachexia, Under certain conditions it can stimulate cell proliferation and induce cell differentiation.
  • 関連疾患

    Genetic variations in TNF are a cause of susceptibility psoriatic arthritis (PSORAS) [MIM:607507]. PSORAS is an inflammatory, seronegative arthritis associated with psoriasis. It is a heterogeneous disorder ranging from a mild, non-destructive disease to a severe, progressive, erosive arthropathy. Five types of psoriatic arthritis have been defined: asymmetrical oligoarthritis characterized by primary involvement of the small joints of the fingers or toes; asymmetrical arthritis which involves the joints of the extremities; symmetrical polyarthritis characterized by a rheumatoidlike pattern that can involve hands, wrists, ankles, and feet; arthritis mutilans, which is a rare but deforming and destructive condition; arthritis of the sacroiliac joints and spine (psoriatic spondylitis).
  • 配列類似性

    Belongs to the tumor necrosis factor family.
  • 翻訳後修飾

    The soluble form derives from the membrane form by proteolytic processing.
    The membrane form, but not the soluble form, is phosphorylated on serine residues. Dephosphorylation of the membrane form occurs by binding to soluble TNFRSF1A/TNFR1.
    O-glycosylated; glycans contain galactose, N-acetylgalactosamine and N-acetylneuraminic acid.

  • SimpleStep ELISA technology allows the formation of the antibody-antigen complex in one single step, reducing assay time to 90 minutes. Add samples or standards and antibody mix to wells all at once, incubate, wash, and add your final substrate. See protocol for a detailed step-by-step guide.


  • Standard Curve comparison between human TNF alpha SimpleStep ELISA kit and traditional ELISA kit from leading competitor. SimpleStep ELISA kit shows increased sensitivity.

  • The TNF alpha standard curve was prepared as described in Section 10. Raw data values are shown in the table. Background-subtracted data values (mean +/- SD) are graphed.

  • PBMC cells were treated with 1.5% PHA-M for 46 hours in 10F RPMI. The concentrations of TNF alpha were measured in duplicates, interpolated from the TNF alpha standard curve and corrected for sample dilution. Undiluted samples are PHA-M treated PBMC cell culture supernatant 10%. The interpolated dilution factor corrected values are plotted (mean +/- SD, n=2). The mean TNF alpha concentration was determined to be 7326.31 pg/mL in PHA-M treated PBMC cell culture supernatant.

  • PBMC cells were stimulated with 1.5% PHA-M or vehicle control in 10F RPMI and incubated for 46 hours. The concentrations of TNF alpha were measured in duplicate and interpolated from the TNF alpha standard curves. Undiluted samples are PHA-M stimulated PBMC cell culture supernatant 10% and unstimulated PBMC cell culture supernatant 10%. The interpolated dilution factor corrected values are plotted (mean +/- SD, n=2). The mean TNF alpha concentration was back calculated determined to be 7265.71 pg/mL in PHA-M stimulated PBMC cell culture supernatant and undetectable in the unstimulated PBMC control.

レビューと Q&A

efficient and accurate

Excellent Excellent 5/5 (Ease of Use)
I used this kit to detect TNF-a in stimulated human CD14+ monocytes. The assay was extremely efficient. There is no overnight coating step, and detection/capture antibodies are added as a cocktail at the same time as the samples. The assay was quite accurate, detecting even minimal amounts of TNF-a. I would use this assay again for its efficiency, requiring very little time at the bench.
