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 Rat CCL3/Mip1a.
Macrophage inflammatory protein-1a (MIP-1a) is an 8kDa member of the C-C chemokine subfamily. C-C chemokines are chemoattractants and activators for monocytes and T cells. MIP-1a has been identified as one of the major HIV-SFs produced by CD8+ T cells, along with MIP-1b and RANTES.
