Rabbit Anti-Human TNF-α Converting Enzyme (TACE) recognizes an epitope near the C-terminus of Human, Mouse and Rat TACE. This polyclonal antibody was purified using affinity chromatography.
TACE (tumor necrosis factor-α-converting enzyme) is a pleiotropic metalloprotease also known as ADAM17 that is found to be constitutively expressed by intestinal epithelial cells.1 TACE is a major sheddase of TNF-α and its receptors, essential for the generation of soluble, mature molecules.2 TACE as a promising target of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) axis inhibition in colorectal cancer (CRC)3 and a principal target for the treatment of TNF-dependent pathologies.4
