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 CaM Kinase 4/CaMKIV.
CaM kinase IV (CaMKIV), in a calcium and calmodulin dependent manner, is implicated in phosphorylating numerous transcription factors including the CCAAT enhancer binding protein (C/EBP), serum response factor (SRF), and cyclic AMP response element binding protein (CBP). The nuclear localization of this protein is consistent with its role in mediating calcium-dependent gene expression. CaMKIV is particularly abundant in testis, T-cells, and neurons but is also found in other tissues to varying degrees. In neurons, CaMKIV is thought to play an important role in synaptic plasticity via its gene regulatory effects. In T-cells, this protein plays an important role in calcium signaling which could affect the transcription regulatory protein, nuclear factor of activated T-cells (NFAT). CaMKIV is encoded, along with calspermin, by the CaMKIV gene. It has been found that, in testes, CaMKIV is expressed in germ cells and found to be associated with chromatin. The association of CaMKIV with chromatin suggests a potential role in chromatin remodeling during nuclear condensation in spermatids.
