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.
This antibody has specificity for Human BID.
BID is a death agonist that heterodimerizes with either agonist BAX or antagonist BCL2. Bid is a member of the BCL-2 family of cell death regulators. BID is a mediator of mitochondrial damage induced by caspase-8 (CASP8); CASP8 cleaves this encoded protein, and the COOH-terminal part translocates to mitochondria where it triggers cytochrome c release. BID is also a pro-apoptotic member of the Bcl 2 family. BID usually exists in an inactive form in the cytosolic fraction of living cells and becomes cleaved and activated by caspase 8 in response to TNF alpha or Fas ligand. Once BID is cleaved, the C-terminal 15 kDa fragment of BID (p15) translocates onto mitochondria and is sufficient to trigger cytochrome c release, resulting in cell apoptosis. BID serves as a direct molecular link between caspase 8 activation and mitochondrial death machinery.
