This antibody is predicted to react with mouse 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.
Retinoic acid-inducible gene I, RIG-I is a pattern recognition receptor (PRR) involved in the recognition of viral dsRNA. Along with MDA5, RIG-I detects viral dsRNA and activates the innate immune response. Both MDA5 and RIG-I are RNA helicases and they perform overlapping as well as distinct roles. RIG-I is activated by dsRNAs without a 5'-triphosphate end and short dsRNAs, whereas MDA5 is activated by long dsRNAs. Once activated, both proteins signal through IPS-1 activating transcription factors NF-kappaB and IRF-3 (1) and ultimately activating apoptosis, cytokine signaling, and inflammation. RIG-I is essential for signaling by influenza A, influenza B, human respiratory syncytial virus (3), paromyxoviruses, Japanese encephalitis virus, and West Nile virus. MicroRNA-146a has been implicated in feedback inhibition of RIG-I-dependant antiviral response by negatively regulating RIG-I targets TRAF6, IRAK1, and IRAK2. Recent evidence has implicated RIG-I in the detection of cytosolic DNA through RNA polymerase III activity.
