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™ oligoclonal antibodies comprise a selection of multiple different recombinant monoclonal antibodies, providing the best of both worlds—the sensitivity of a polyclonal antibody with the specificity of a monoclonal, 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 when compared with monoclonal antibodies—an oligoclonal antibody has a known mixture of light and heavy chains. This exact population can be produced in every lot, circumventing the biological variability typically associated with polyclonal antibody production.
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.
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.
