This antibody is predicted to react with Monkey, Rabbit and Bat.
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.
Osteopontin is a 34kDa extracellular matrix protein with a cell binding domain. It was originally identified as a major component of the non-collagenous organic bone matrix, however, it has subsequently been demonstrated in a wide range of normal adult tissue and body fluids. It is a multifunctional protein involved in bone mineralization, cell adhesion, cell migration, chronic inflammatory disease and transformation. Proteolytic cleavage by thrombin and matrix metalloproteinases close to the integrin-binding Arg-Gly-Asp sequence modulates the function of OPN and its integrin binding properties. Thrombin-cleaved fragments of Osteopontin are overexpressed in malignant glial tumors and provide a molecular niche with survival advantage and provide a novel substrate for plasmin and cathepsin D.
