This antibody is predicted to react with bovine, canine, chicken, chimpanzee, equine, mouse, rat, Rhesus monkey , porcine and Xenopus based on sequence homology.
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.
Biological actions of insulin and IGF-1 are mediated by their respective cell surface receptor tyrosine kinases that regulate multiple signaling pathways through activation of a series of phosphorylation cascades. The insulin receptor. Insulin/IGF-1 binding to the extracellular domain leads to autophosphorylation of downstream target proteins. These two receptors differ in sequence in regions that confer specificity for the designated ligand as well as in certain intracellular signaling domains, resulting in significant differences in the functional consequences of activation of each receptor. Defects in IR are the cause of various insulin resistance syndromes and IGF-1R defects may cause some forms of growth retardation. Both these signaling cascades are also important for the development of cancer.
