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.
IFR3 (interferon regulatory factor 3) is a key transcriptional regulator of type I interferon (IFN)-dependent immune responses. It plays a critical role in the innate immune response against DNA and RNA viruses. IFR3 regulates the transcription of type I IFN genes (IFN-alpha and IFN-beta) and IFN-stimulated genes (ISG) by binding to an interferon-stimulated response element (ISRE) in their promoters. It acts as a more potent activator of the IFN-beta gene than the IFN-alpha gene and plays a critical role in both the early and late phases of the IFNA/B gene induction. IFR3 is found in an inactive form in the cytoplasm of uninfected cells and following viral infection, double-stranded RNA, or toll-like receptor signaling. It is phosphorylated by IKBKE and TBK1 kinases. This induces a conformational change, leading to its dimerization and nuclear localization and association with CREB binding protein to form dsRNA-activated factor 1 (DRAF1), a complex which activates the transcription of the type I IFN and ISG genes. Mutations in the gene can result in encephalopathy, acute, infection-induced, herpes-specific 7.
