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.
This antibody has specificity for Human IGF1R/CD221.
IGF1R (Insulin-like Growth Factor1 Receptor) is a receptor tyrosine kinase that mediates actions of insulin-like growth factor 1 (IFG1). It binds IGF1 with high affinity and IGF2/insulin with lower affinity. Activated IGF1R is involved in cell growth and survival control. IGF1R is crucial for tumor transformation and survial of malignant cells. Ligand binding activates the receptor kinase and leads to receptor autophosphorylation and tyrosines phosphorylation of multiple substrates that function as signaling adapter proteins.
