ABfinity™ recombinant antibodies are rabbit monoclonal antibodies, unmatched for producing superior results. ABfinity™ antibodies are developed by immunizing animals, screening for functionality, cloning the immunogen-specific antibody genes into high-level mammalian expression vectors, produced on a large scale and purified with Protein A.
ABfinity™ oligoclonal antibodies comprise a selection of multiple different recombinant monoclonal antibodies, providing the best of both worlds—the sensitivity of a polyclonal antibody with the specificity of a monoclonal, 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 when compared with monoclonal antibodies—an oligoclonal antibody has a known mixture of light and heavy chains. This exact population can be produced in every lot, circumventing the biological variability typically associated with polyclonal antibody production.
Intact IgG appears on a non-reducing gel as ~150 kDa band and upon reduction generating a ~25 kDa light chain band and a ~50 kDa heavy chain.
FGFb (fibroblast growth factor basic) or FGF2, belongs to the fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family, and interact with high-affinity transmembrane receptors to influence cell proliferation and tissue neovascularization. FGFb exists as five isoforms with distinct intracellular localizations and functions. The 18 kDa isoform is predominantly cytosolic and acts through cell surface receptors, whereas the 22, 22.5, 24 and 34 kDa isoforms are nuclear and may signal independent of transmembrane receptor pathways. In humans, the gene is located on the q arm of chromosome 4.
