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.
G protein-coupled receptor kinases (GRKs) are important regulators of G protein-coupled receptors(GPCRs). GRK2 (83 kDa), one of six members of this family that have been identified, is ubiquitously expressed in mammals. After binding to their ligand and interacting with heterotrimeric G proteins, GPCRs (e.g., a2-adrenergic receptor) are phosphorylated by GRKs. Internalization of the GPCRs, regulated by beta-arrestin-1, leads to activation of the Ras - Raf - ERK1&2 signaling pathway. GRK2 activity is tightly controlled by different mechanisms including phosphorylation by kinases such as PKC, Src and ERK1&2, as well as interaction with various proteins. ERK phosphorylates and thus inactivates GRK2 on serine 670 in a negative feedback mechanism.
