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.
Originally identified as an autoantigen, the Ku protein are nuclear proteins found in eukaryotes. They exist as a heterodimer consisiting of Ku 70 and Ku 80, migrating at approximately 70 and 80 kDa respectively. They bind to DNA ends at double strand breaks. The Ku proteins interact with the DNA-dependent protein kinase (DNA-PK) and participate in the targeting of DNA-PK to DNA. The Ku proteins may participate in numerous cellular processes, including DNA repair and replication, cell signalling, cell proliferation, transcriptional activation and apoptosis.
