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.
CD90 (Thy 1) antigen is a GPI linked glycoprotein member of the Immunoglobulin super family. CD90 is expressed in murine T cells, thymocytes, neural cells, Kupffer's cells and fibroblasts. CD90 may play a role in cell-cell or cell-ligand interactions during synaptogenesis and other events in the brain. CD90 can be used as a marker for a variety of stem cells and for the axonal processes of mature neurons. Structural study of CD90 led to the foundation of the Immunoglobulin superfamily, of which it is the smallest member, and led to the first biochemical description and characterization of a vertebrate GPI anchor. Diseases associated with CD90 dysfunction include nasopharyngeal carcinoma and thymoma.
