Reprobing of an existing membrane is a convenient means to immunoblot for multiple proteins independently when only a limited amount of sample is available. It should be noted that for the best possible results a fresh blot is always recommended. Reprobing can be a valuable method but with each reprobing of a blot there is potential for increased background signal. Additionally, it is recommended that you verify the removal of the first antibody complex prior to reprobing so that signal attributed to binding of the new antibody is not leftover signal from the first immunoblotting experiment. This can be done by re-exposing the blot to ECL reagents and making sure there is no signal prior to adding the next primary antibody.
NOTE: Prepare solutions with reverse osmosis deionized (RODI) or equivalently purified water.

TWEAK Antibody detects recombinant and transfected levels of TWEAK protein.
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding His110 of human Tweak protein. Antibodies were purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
TWEAK (TNFSF12/Apo-3L) is a member of the TNF superfamily of cytokines that are typically involved in immune regulation, inflammation, and apoptosis (1,2). TWEAK mRNA is expressed in a variety of tissues and cell lines, with higher levels observed in the heart, brain, skeletal muscle and within the immune system (1). Like other family members TWEAK is a type II transmembrane protein that can also be proteolytically processed to form a soluble cytokine. Soluble TWEAK is a weak inducer of apoptosis in some cell lines (1). The receptor for TWEAK, known as TWEAKR or fibroblast growth factor inducible 14 (Fn14), is a relatively small member of the TNF receptor family (3). TWEAK signaling has been associated with apoptosis, proliferation, migration, angiogenesis, and inflammation (4). Recent studies have suggested some therapeutic potential of TWEAK and its receptor signaling in regards to autoimmunity, cancer, and vascular injury (5-8).
