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.

A human homolog of Drosophila Mad protein, SMAD3 consists of N-terminal DNA-binding MH1 domain, a linker region and a C-terminal MH2 domain.It is a receptor regulated SMAD (R-SMAD) that functions downstream of TGF-beta and activin receptors and mediates their signaling. It is recruited by SARA (Smad anchor for receptor activation) to the receptor kinase for phosphorylation. Upon phosphorylation, SMAD3 disassociates from SARA, forms a complex with SMAD4 and transmigrates into the nucleus where it complexes with other cofactors and acts as a transcription factor. It has an indispensable role in cell proliferation, differentiation, apoptosis and formation of ECM. Loss of SMAD3 results in Childhood T-cell leukemia.
