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.
RPE65 is a major protein of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE). RPE65 is essential for the regeneration of rhodopsin in the visual cycle. Mutations in RPE65 are responsible for certain forms of autosomal recessive severe retinal dystrophy, including Leber Congenital Amaurosis (LCA). Loss of function results in a block in retinoid processing required for the synthesis of 11-cis retinal and the accumulation of retinyl esters in the RPE.
