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 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.
PDGFR-alpha belongs to the protein tyrosine kinase family, and binds to the alpha chain of PDGF. Members of the PDGF receptor subfamily are cell surface receptors that act as mitogens for cells of mesenchymal origin, and consist of alpha and beta isoforms of ~190, and 125 kDa, respectively. Activated PDGF receptors act on signaling pathways that control cell growth, actin reorganization, migration, and differentiation. In humans, the gene is located on the q arm of chromosome 4.
