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 Mouse CD53.
CD53 is a tetraspanin family transmembrane glycoprotein expressed in the lymphoid-myeloid lineage. This molecule has been reported to form complexes with other leukocyte surface proteins such as CD2, CD19, CD21, MHC II, VLA-4 or tetraspanins CD37, CD81 and CD82, thus probably modulating various signaling processes. CD53 is involved in radioresistancy of tumor cells and its triggering has anti-apoptotic effect. In thymus, CD53 is up-regulated in response to positive selection signals during T cell development, and is strongly expressed upon macrophage exposure to bacterial lipopolysaccharide, whereas stimulation of neutrophils results in down-regulation of CD53 expression.
