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.
EEF2K (eukaryotic elongation factor 2 kinase) is a threonine kinase that regulates protein synthesis by controlling the rate of peptide chain elongation. Up activation, by a variety of upstream kinases including AMPK or TRPM7, EEF2K phosphorylates the elongation factor EEF2 at a single site. Then, EEF2K renders EEF2 unable to bind ribosomes and inactive - in turn, the rate of protein synthesis is reduced.
