This antibody is predicted to react with mouse, rabbit, rat and porcine based on sequence homology.
ABfinity™ recombinant antibodies are rabbit monoclonal antibodies, unmatched for producing superior results. ABfinity™ antibodies are developed by immunizing animals, screening for functionality, cloning the immunogen-specific antibody genes into high-level mammalian expression vectors, produced on a large scale and purified with Protein A.
ABfinity™ oligoclonal antibodies comprise a selection of multiple different recombinant monoclonal antibodies, providing the best of both worlds—the sensitivity of a polyclonal antibody with the specificity of a monoclonal, all delivered with the consistency only found in a recombinant antibody. While functionally the same as a polyclonal antibody—recognizing multiple epitope sites on the target and producing higher detection sensitivity for low abundance targets when compared with monoclonal antibodies—an oligoclonal antibody has a known mixture of light and heavy chains. This exact population can be produced in every lot, circumventing the biological variability typically associated with polyclonal antibody production.
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.
CNTF (ciliary neurotrophic factor) is a polypeptide hormone with activity that is limited to the nervous system. It plays a role in neurotransmitter synthesis, membrane hyper polarization, and neuronal growth. CNTF promotes development of nervous system, and is involved in muscle morphogenesis. It also plays an important role in minimizing damage to neurons during inflammation. CNTF activates JAK-STAT, and PI3K signaling cascades. The protein is encoded by the gene CNTF located on chromosome 11.
