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.
SOX9 has a role in sex determination and differentiation of Sertoli cells. It is involved in chondrogenesis and regulates the expression of other genes involved in chondrogenesis by acting as a transcription factor for these genes. Translocation of this gene can cause campomelic dysplasia. SOX9 is involved in the formation of testes from the indifferent fetal gonads. It is a major molecular component of the neuron-glia switch in developing spinal cord. During normal development, SOX9 allows the prostate epithelium to outgrow into the mesenchyme and then provides basal cell support for development and maintenance of the luminal epithelium. These functions of SOX9 are subverted in prostate cancer to support tumor growth and invasion. SOX9 may direct the formation of neural crest precursors and the development of a range of neural crest derivative. It has a transcriptional regulation in melanin production in cells. Northern blot analysis shows its expression on adult testis, adult heart, and fetal brain.
