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 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.
AMPKa belongs to the family of AMP activated protein kinases, that plays a central role in regulating cellular and organismal energy balance in response to the balance between AMP/ATP, and intracellular Ca2+ levels. AMPK exists as a heterotrimer comprising of catalytic alpha subunit, and regulatory beta and gamma subunits. The alpha subunit is activated by increases in the cellular AMP:ATP ratio caused by metabolic stresses, and can mediate the effects of the adipokines leptin and adiponectin. Two isoforms differ in subcellular localization and AMP-dependence. Phosphorylation of threonine 172 in the alpha subunit is a key determinant of AMPK activity.
