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.
MEK1/mitogen activated protein kinase/ERK kinase 1/microtubule-associated protein 2 kinase is a dual specificity kinase and catalyzes both a threonine and a tyrosine residue on MAP kinases ERK1 and ERK2. Mek1 is activated by phosphorylation of serine 218 and 222 residues by Raf1. It is known to be involved in the signaling during stress activate response, apoptosis and proliferative induction by cytokines. Mutations in the gene can lead to cardiofaciocutaneous syndrome.
