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.
PINK1 (PTEN-induced putative kinase 1) protects from mitochondrial dysfunction in cells by conferring different autophosphorylation activity to mitochondrial genes. The kinase domain of PINK1 appears to be critical in its protective effects. Mitochondrial proteins are critical for the regulation of cellular energy and adaptation to stress. Particularly in brain cells, mitochondrial demand is extraordinarily high, in order to accommodate aerobic and anaerobic support of high energy processes. When mitochondrial structure and/or function is disrupted in the brain, neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson's disease are triggered.
