Tumor Necrosis Factor Alpha (TNFα) ELISA
BioMarkers | Diabetic Nephropathy | Inflammation
The K-ASSAY®Human Tumor Necrosis Factor alpha (TNFα) ELISA is an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative determination of TNFα in human cell culture supernatant, serum and plasma.
TNFα is a central regulator of inflammation and represents one of the cytokines of the acute phase response in the liver. It is produced by a variety of cell types, such as macrophages, lymphocytes and endothelial cells. Large amounts of TNF are released following exposure to bacterial products (for example lipopolysaccharide) as well as interleukins (IL)-1 and -6.
Upregulation of TNFα is observed in several inflammatory diseases including: inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetic nephropathy and cardiovascular diseases. Purified TNFα has shown cytotoxic and cytostatic activities against various human tumor cell lines.
