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.
TET2 is a dioxygenase that catalyzes the conversion of the modified genomic base 5-methylcytosine (5mC) into 5-hydromethylcytosine (5hmC) and plays a key role in active DNA demethylation. TET2 has a preference for 5-hydroxymethylcytosine in CpG motifs. It mediates subsequent conversion of 5hmC into 5-formylcytosine (5fC) and conversion of 5fC to 5-carboyxlcytosine (5caC). Conversion of 5mC into 5hmC, 5fC, and 5caC probably constitutes the first step in cytonsine demethylation. In addition to TET2’s role in DNA demethylation, it is also involved in the recruitment of the O-GlcNAc transferase OGT to CpG-rich transcription start sites of active genes, thereby promoting histone H2B GlcNAcylation by OGT. Mutations in the genes can result in Polycythemia vera and Myelodysplastic syndrome.
