Immunofluorescent analysis of Nrf2 in U2OS cells using a Nrf2 recombinant rabbit oligoclonal antibody (Product # 710574) followed by detection using an Alexa Fluor 488-conjugated goat anti-rabbit secondary antibody (green) (Image A). Nuclei were stained using DAPI (Image B) and actin stained with Alexa Fluor 594 phalloidin (red) (image C). Image D is a composite image showing cytoplasmic localization of Nrf2 and Image E shows HeLa cells followed by detection using an Alexa Fluor 488-conjugated goat anti-rabbit secondary antibody (green).

ABfinity™ recombinant antibodies are rabbit monoclonal antibodies, unmatched for producing superior results. ABfinity™ antibodies are developed by immunizing animals, screening for functionality, cloning the immunogen-specific antibody genes into high-level mammalian expression vectors, produced on a large scale and purified with Protein A.
ABfinity™ oligoclonal antibodies comprise a selection of multiple different recombinant monoclonal antibodies, providing the best of both worlds—the sensitivity of a polyclonal antibody with the specificity of a monoclonal, 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 when compared with monoclonal antibodies—an oligoclonal antibody has a known mixture of light and heavy chains. This exact population can be produced in every lot, circumventing the biological variability typically associated with polyclonal antibody production.
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.
Nrf2 (nuclear factor erythroid 2-related factor 2) is a transcription activator which plays a key role in protecting the cell from oxidative stress and inflammation. It is primarily localized in the cytoplasm under normal conditions, but under conditions of oxidative stress, Nrf2 migrates to the nucleus to upregulate expression of genes with ARE (antioxidant response elements) in the promoter region. The upregulated genes include those involved in cellular protection, drug transport, detoxification, and anti-oxidant defense. The protein is ubiquitously expressed in various tissues, with the highest levels found in kidney, muscle, lung, heart, liver, and brain.
