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.
Nuclear factor kappa B (NF-KB) is a ubiquitous transcription factor and an essential mediator of gene expression during activation of immune and inflammatory responses. NF-KB mediates the expression of a great variety of genes in response to extracellular stimuli. NF-KB is associated with IKB proteins in the cell cytoplasm, which inhibit NF-KB activity. Phosphorylation of I-KB by IKB kinase (IKK) complex leads to degradation of I-KB and activation of NF-KB. The IKK complex contains IKKa, IKKß, and IKKK. A novel IKK related kinase was recently identified and designated TBK1 (TANK-binding kinase 1), NAK (NF-KB-activating kinase), and T2K. NAK/TBK1 activates IKKß through direct phosphorylation. NAK/TBK1 is activated by growth factors and PMA and mediates IKK and NF-kB activation in response to growth factors. NAK/TBK1 functions upstream of NIK and the IKK complex. NAK/TBK1 is also critical in protecting embryonic liver from apoptosis.
