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.
MET is a tyrosine kinase receptor for the hepatocyte growth factor. It is linked to functions such as cell proliferation, scattering, morphogenesis, and survival. Ligand binding at the cell surface induces autophosphorylation of MET that provides docking sites for downstream signaling molecules. After activation of the ligand, MET interacts with the PI3-kinase subunit PIK3R1, PLCG1, SRC, GRB2, and STAT3. There interactions lead to the activation of signaling cascades including RAS-ERK, PI3, kinase-AKT, and PLCgamma-PKC. MET plays a role in embryonic development including gastrulation, development of muscles and neurons, angiogenesis, and kidney formation. It also plays a role in adults including wound healing, organ regeneration, and tissue remodeling. MET has been linked to cancers including gastric, renal, and breast; therefore, making it a target for cancer therapeutics and diagnostic testing.
