General description

Transforming Growth Factor-β1 (TGF β1) is a multifunctional protein that can stimulate or inhibit cellular proliferation. Mesenchymal origin cells are stimulated by TGF β1 while T and B lymphocytes, keratinocytes, hepatocytes and epithelial cells are inhibited by TGF β1. It facilitates in tissue growth and differentiation by participating in myogenesis, osteogenesis, adipogenesis, chondrogenesis, epithelial cell differentiation and immune cell function. Anti-Transforming Growth Factor-β1 antibody can be used in neutralization assay. Chicken anti-TGF β1 reacts specifically with recombinant human TGF-β1 or TGF-β1.2.

Physical form

Lyophilized from 0.2 μm filtered solution in phosphate buffered saline with 5% trehalose.


The antibody will neutralize the biological activity of recombinant human TGF-β1 and porcine TGF-β1.2.


Anti-Transforming Growth Factor-β1 antibody can be used in western blotting.
