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.
Arginase-1 (Arg1) is a 35 kDa enzyme converting L-arginine to urea and L-ornithine, which is the final step in the urea cycle. The resulting polyamines are important for cell proliferation and removal of toxins that arise from protein degradation. By degrading arginine, Arginase 1 deprives NO synthase of its substrate and down-regulates nitric oxide production. In both human and mouse, Arginase 1 is expressed in the liver, neutrophils, myeloid derived suppressor cells (MDSC) and neural stem cells. In human, expression in blood neutrophils but not in CCR3+ granulocytes has been reported. In mice, expression of Arginase 1 is one of the hallmarks of alternatively activated macrophages (M2a). Arginase-1 may be expressed in the myeloid cells infiltrating tumors, and is typically found in the majority of hepatocellular carcinomas. Defects in Arginase 1 are the cause of argininemia, an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by hyperammonemia.
