ABfinity™ recombinant antibodies are rabbit monoclonal antibodies, unmatched for producing superior results. ABfinity™ antibodies are developed by immunizing animals, screening for functionality, cloning the immunogen-specific antibody genes into high-level mammalian expression vectors, produced on a large scale, and purified with Protein A.
ABfinity™ monoclonal antibodies resemble rabbit monoclonals isolated from serum or produced by hybridomas, but demonstrate greater specificity and sensitivity. Because ABfinity™ recombinant antibodies are derived from cloned DNA sequences of the heavy and light antibody chains, they are not susceptible to cell-line drift or lot-to-lot variation, thus allowing for peak specificity and performance.
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.
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.
