Recombinant rabbit polyclonal antibodies are unique offerings from Thermo Fisher Scientific. They are comprised of a selection of multiple different recombinant monoclonal antibodies, providing the best of both worlds - the sensitivity of polyclonal antibodies with the specificity of monoclonal antibodies - 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 - a recombinant rabbit polyclonal antibody has a known mixture of light and heavy chains. The exact population can be produced in every lot, circumventing the biological variability typically associated with polyclonal antibody production.
The Calcitonin Receptor inhibits bone resorption. This receptor is expressed during development and is involved in morphogenesis. Three alternatively spliced Calcitonin Receptor isoforms have been identified. In addition to binding calcitonin, the Calcitonin Receptor can complex with RAMP3 (receptor activity modifying protein) to bind amylin, which regulates pancreatic islet function and is involved in Type II diabetes. The Calcitonin Receptor has been reported in artery, blood, bone, brain, kidney, lung, placenta, prostate, skeletal muscle, and thyroid. ESTs have been isolated from bone, embryo, kidney, and melanocyte/uterus/fetal heart libraries.
