This antibody is predicted to react with mouse, rat, non-human primate and rabbit based on sequence homology.
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.
Recombinant rabbit polyclonal antibodies are unique offerings from Thermo Fisher Scientific. They are comprised of a selection of multiple different recombinant monoclonal antibodies, providing the best of both worlds – the sensitivity of polyclonal antibodies with the specificity of monoclonal antibodies - 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 – a recombinant rabbit polyclonal antibody has a known mixture of light and heavy chains. The exact population can be produced in every lot, circumventing the biological variability typically associated with polyclonal antibody production.
Ubiquitin is a conserved 76 amino acid polypeptide and can affect proteasomal degradation of the protein it is bound to, or mediate interactions with other proteins related to posttranslation modifications. The degradation of cellular regulatory proteins by the ubiquitin pathway is important as it controls the cellular growth and proliferation. Ubiquitin dependent proteolysis occurs after a covalent attachment of the peptide to a lysine residue of a protein, which involves three enzymatic reactions: E1, E2 and E3. First reaction involves ubiquitin-activating enzyme. The third reaction uses enzyme ubiquitin ligase (E3) to transfer the activated ubiquitin from E2 to a lysine residue on a protein, or directly transfers the ubiquitin from E2 to the substrate.
