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™ oligoclonal antibodies comprise a selection of multiple different recombinant monoclonal antibodies, providing the best of both worlds—the sensitivity of a polyclonal antibody with the specificity of a monoclonal, all delivered with the consistency only found in a recombinant antibody. While functionally the same as a polyclonal antibody—recognizing multiple epitope sites on the target and producing higher detection sensitivity for low abundance targets when compared with monoclonal antibodies—an oligoclonal antibody has a known mixture of light and heavy chains. This exact population can be produced in every lot, circumventing the biological variability typically associated with polyclonal antibody production.
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.
PAI (plasminogen activator inhibitor) belongs to serine protease inhibitor superfamily, and is the principal inhibitor of tissue-type and urokinase-type plasminogen activators (tPA and uPA). Platelets are the main source of the circulating PAI-1, but it is synthesized and secreted by many tissue and cell types, including fibroblasts, smooth muscle cells, endothelial cells, hepatocytes, and inflammatory cells. Expression of PAI-1 can be regulated at the transcriptional level by many factors including growth factors, cytokines, hormones, inflammatory factors, glucose or lipid metabolites, vascular tone regulating factors, chemicals, and other environmental or physical factors.
