Recombinant rabbit monoclonal antibodies are produced using in vitro expression systems. The expression systems are developed by cloning in the specific antibody DNA sequences from immunoreactive rabbits. Then, individual clones are screened to select the best candidates for production. The advantages of using recombinant rabbit monoclonal antibodies include: better specificity and sensitivity, lot-to-lot consistency, animal origin-free formulations, and broader immunoreactivity to diverse targets due to larger rabbit immune repertoire.
The heterotetrameric coat assembly protein complex, also known as the adaptor-related protein complex 2 (AP-2), belongs to the adaptor complexes medium subunits family. The mu 1 subunit of the AP-2 complex (AP2M1) is required for the activity of a vacuolar ATPase, which is responsible for proton pumping occurring in the acidification of endosomes and lysosomes. AP2M1 has also been shown to associate with the HIV-1 protein Nef, suggesting that Nef may use AP-2 complex to enhance the rate of endocytosis of both CD4 and class I MHC. AP2M1 may also play an important role in regulating the intracellular trafficking and function of cytotoxic T-lymphocyte associated (CTLA)-4 protein. At least two isoforms of AP2M1 are known to exist.
