This antibody is predicted to react with non-human primate, equine and rabbit based on sequence homology.
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™ monoclonal antibodies resemble rabbit monoclonals isolated from serum or produced by hybridomas, but demonstrate greater specificity and sensitivity. Because ABfinity™ recombinant antibodies are derived from cloned DNA sequences of the heavy and light antibody chains, they are not susceptible to cell-line drift or lot-to-lot variation, thus allowing for peak specificity and performance.
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.
BAFF is a membrane bound cytokine expressed by B cell lineage cells. The soluble form of the cytokine binds to the receptors TNFRSF13B/TACI, TNFRSF17/BCMA, and TNFRSF13C/BAFFR. BAFF is a potent B cell activator, and important for the proliferation and differentiation of B cells. BAFF is also expressed by T lymphocytes and has been shown to promote T cell activation and survival. Isoforms representing alternatively spliced, and glycosylated variants have been identified.
