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 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.
MMP13 (collagense 3) plays a role in the degradation of extracellular matrix proteins including fibrillar collagen, fibronectin, TNC, and ACAN. MMP13 cleaves tripal helical collagens, including type I, II, and III collagen - but has the highest activity with soluble type II collagen. It can degrade collagen type IV, XIV, and X. MMP13 plays a role in wound healing, tissue remodeling, cartilage degradation, bone development, bone mineralization, and ossification. It is required for normal embryonic bone development and ossificaiton. Mutations affecting the gene can lead to spondyloepimetaphyseal dysplasia Missouri type, metaphyseal anadysplasia 1, and metaphyseal dysplasia Sphar type.
