This antibody is predicted to react with mouse, rat, non-human primate and rabbit based on sequence homology.
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.
Recombinant rabbit polyclonal antibodies are unique offerings from Thermo Fisher Scientific. They are comprised of a selection of multiple different recombinant monoclonal antibodies, providing the best of both worlds – the sensitivity of polyclonal antibodies with the specificity of monoclonal antibodies - 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 – a recombinant rabbit polyclonal antibody has a known mixture of light and heavy chains. The exact population can be produced in every lot, circumventing the biological variability typically associated with polyclonal antibody production.
Hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) is a member of the plasminogen subfamily of S1 peptidases. The inactive polypeptide formed upon translation undergoes cleavage to produce a 69 kDa alpha-chain and 34 kDa beta-chain. A disulphide bond between the two chains makes active HGF. HGF is secreted by mesenchymal cells and stimulates mitogenesis, cell motility, and matrix invasion. It is involved in cellular growth and morphogenesis in a wide variety of tissue types. In humans, HGF is present on chromosome 7.
