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 CLEC14A.
CLEC-14A (C-type lectin domain family 14 member A), also known as EGFR-5 (epidermal growth factor receptor 5) or CEG1, is a 490 amino acid single-pass type I membrane protein that contains one C-type lectin domain and an EGF-like domain. The gene encoding CLEC-14A maps to human chromosome 14, which houses over 700 genes and comprises nearly 3.5% of the human genome. Chromosome 14 encodes the presinilin 1 (PSEN1) gene, which is one of the three key genes associated with the development of Alzheimer's disease (AD). The SERPINA1 gene is also located on chromosome 14 and, when defective, leads to the genetic disorder alpha1-antitrypsin deficiency, which is characterized by severe lung complications and liver dysfunction.
