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.
Intercellular adhesion molecule-1 is a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily, and is critical for the adhesion and transmigration of leukocytes from blood vessels and into tissues. ICAM-1 is constitutively expressed on endothelial cells, but levels increase in response to proinflammatory cytokines. It is also expressed on smooth muscle cells, resulting in leukocyte accumulation, and activation of mononuclear cells. The expression of adhesion molecules on smooth muscle cells may be cell cycle-dependent, and influence smooth muscle cell proliferation and differentiation.
