ABfinity™ recombinant antibodies are rabbit monoclonal antibodies, unmatched for producing superior results. ABfinity™ antibodies are developed by immunizing animals, screening for functionality, cloning the immunogen-specific antibody genes into high-level mammalian expression vectors, produced on a large scale, and purified with Protein A.
ABfinity™ monoclonal antibodies resemble rabbit monoclonals isolated from serum or produced by hybridomas, but demonstrate greater specificity and sensitivity. Because ABfinity™ recombinant antibodies are derived from cloned DNA sequences of the heavy and light antibody chains, they are not susceptible to cell-line drift or lot-to-lot variation, thus allowing for peak specificity and performance.
Intact IgG appears on a non-reducing gel as ~150 kDa band and upon reduction generating a ~25 kDa light chain band and a ~50 kDa heavy chain.
Connexin 46 (Cx46), also known as Gap Junction Protein Alpha-3 (GJA3), CAE3, CX46 and C2P3, maps to human chromosome 13q11-q12 and encodes a 46 kDa protein. Cx46, along with Cx50, is principally expressed in the lens of the eye. Cx46 mediates intercellular interactions during development and is necessary for the survival of neural crest cells. Cx46 forms gap junctions that connect lens fiber cells and are crucial for maintaining lens transparency and normal lens function. Mutations of Cx46 result in severe cataracts of the lens. Individual knockouts of Cx46 and Cx50 lead to changes in the rate of lens fiber cell differentiation and cell size, thus the interaction of Cx46 and Cx50 is required for proper organization of fiber cells.
