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.
C3 is a key component of the complement system since classical and alternative activation pathways merge at the C3 activation step when C3 is split into C3a and C3b. The molecular mass of C3 is 185 kDa and it consists of two chains (110 kDa and 75 kDa) held together by disulfide bonds.
