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.
Vascular endothelial growth factors (VEGFs) are a family of closely related growth factors having a conserved pattern of eight cysteine residues and sharing common VEGF receptors. VEGF Receptor 1 and VEGF Receptor 2 are both expressed in an endothelial cell-specific manner. They are detectable in virtually all tissues in adults and embryos. Monocytes express VEGF Receptor 1 and VEGF Receptor 2. VEGF Receptor 2 is involved in commitment of endothelial-cell lineages and to cell proliferation, while VEGF Receptor 1 seems to be responsible for guiding endothelial cells into the proper spatial organization of the lumen-containing vessels. VEGF Receptor 2 binds VEGF with high affinity but does not bind PIGF.
