This antibody is predicted to react with bovine, canine, chimpanzee, feline, non-human primate and rabbit based on sequence homology.
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.
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.
The neural cell adhesion molecule (NCAM) is a member of the Ig superfamily, and is involved in mediating homophilic binding. A number of different isoforms of NCAM exist. The isoforms are differentially expressed depending upon tissue type, and stage of development. In addition to playing a role in cell-cell adhesion, NCAM is also involved in development, neurite outgrowth, synaptic plasticity, learning, and memory.
