Recombinant rabbit polyclonal antibodies are unique offerings from Thermo Fisher Scientific. They are comprised of a selection of multiple different recombinant monoclonal antibodies, providing the best of both worlds – the sensitivity of polyclonal antibodies with the specificity of monoclonal antibodies - all delivered with the consistency only found in a recombinant antibody. While functionally the same as a polyclonal antibody – recognizing multiple epitope sites on the target and producing higher detection sensitivity for low abundance targets – a recombinant rabbit polyclonal antibody has a known mixture of light and heavy chains. The exact population can be produced in every lot, circumventing the biological variability typically associated with polyclonal antibody production.
NKX2-5 is a transcription factor protein which plays a crucial role in cardiac development and differentiation. It is a low molecular weight protein of 35-38 kDa depending on phosphorylation status. Expression is mainly restricted to the heart. But during embryogenesis NKX2-5 expression has also been detected in spleen-precursor cells. Over expression of NKX2-5 resulted in expression of neuronal markers in C2C12 murine myogenic cells. Functionally it is involved in differentiation processes in heart development and in homeostasis and survival of cardiac myocytes as well maintains the initial muscle differentiation paradigm.
