This antibody is predicted to react with mouse, rat, non-human primate, rabbit and porcine based on sequence homology.
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.
ATCH (adrenocorticotropic hormone) is a hormone which plays a major role in stimulating the adrenal cortex. It is formed through cleavage of the polypeptide precursor proopiomelanocortin (POMC), which also results in several other cleavage products including MSH, ACTH, and beta endorphin. ATCH is secreted from the anterior pituitary in response to the corticotropin-releasing hormone from the hypothalamus. It stimulates the secretion of glucocorticoids like cortisol, but has little control over the stimulation of mineralocorticoids like aldosterone, which is another major hormone of the adrenal cortex.
