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.
The KRAB (Kruppel-associated box) domain is about 45 amino acids in length and is a transcriptional repression domain found in numerous transcription factors. There have been identified over 220 KRAB-zinc finger protein (KRAB-ZFP) genes in the human genome. These proteins functionally repress transcription via specific interactions with KAP-1 (KRAB-associated protein 1). KAP-1 is an 835 amino acid polypeptide that contains a RING finger, B boxes, and a PHD finger. KAP-1 has been shown to form complexes with KRAB-domain transcription factors and increase the efficiency with which they mediate repression. KAP-1 has also been shown to directly interact with HP1 (heterochromatin protein 1) and KRAZ1 (Kruppel-associated box-containing zinc finger protein 1). KAP-1 directly targets KRAZ1 to the foci of centromeric heterochromatin containing HP1alpha, thus helping to regulate transcriptional repression. Studies have shown that KAP-1 mutants with the ability to bind KRAB but unable to bind HP1 leads to random distribution of KRAZ1 and strong transcriptional activation.
