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 Decorin/DCN/SLRR1B.
Decorin is a member of the small, leucine-rich proteoglycan (SLRP) family along with biglycan. Found in the interterritorial region of cartilage, decorin interacts with collagen and other matrix proteins to regulate the cartilaginous matrix. It has been shown to interact with fibronectin, thrombospondin, C1q, epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), and TGF-b. It is believed that decorin also plays a role in the cell cycle of chondrocytes. The decorin neoepitope fragment has a sequence of PKTLQE, and is generated by MMP-3 or ADAMTS-4 cleavage at Glu154-Leu155 of decorin core protein.
