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™ monoclonal antibodies resemble rabbit monoclonals isolated from serum or produced by hybridomas, but demonstrate greater specificity and sensitivity. Because ABfinity™ recombinant antibodies are derived from cloned DNA sequences of the heavy and light antibody chains, they are not susceptible to cell-line drift or lot-to-lot variation, thus allowing for peak specificity and performance.
This antibody is predicted to react with Rat, Mouse, Pig and Sheep.
OTX2 is a 289 amino acid containing protein encoding a member of the bicoid sub-family of homeodomain-containing transcription factors. It has two known alternative splice variants with distinct isoforms though presence of other isoforms cannot be excluded. The protein is an early marker of endodermal differentiation of embryonic stem cells and may play a role in the development of the brain and the sensory organs. The protein may bind to BCD target sequence (BTS): 5-'TCTAATCCC-3'. Defects in OTX2 are the cause of microphthalmia syndromic type 5 (MCOPS5).
