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 Human CRABP2.
Cellular retinoic acid binding protein (CRABP) is a low molecular weight protein with unknown function and existing in two isoforms, CRABP1 and CRABP2. The predicted amino acid sequences of human CRABP1 and CRABP2 exhibits 99.3 and 93.5% identity to mouse CRABP1 and CRABP2, respectively. The CRABP2 isoform is important in retinoic acid-mediated regulation of human skin growth and differentiation. The CRABP2 gene localized on human chromosome 1q21.3 is transcriptionally regulated by a newly synthesized regulatory protein. The protein is expressed in human adult liver.
