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.
TWIST1 acts as a transcriptional regulator. It inhibits myogensis by sequestering E proteins, inhibiting trans-activation by MEF2, and inhibiting DNA-binding by MYOD1 through physical interaction. TWIST1 also represses proinflammatory cytokines such as TNFA and IL1B. TWIST also regulates cranial suture patterning and fusion and gene expression differentially depending on dimer composition. Mutations in the gene are implicated in Saethre-Chotzen syndrome, a disease characterized by coronal synostosis, brachycephaly, low front hairline, facial asymmetry, hypertelorism, broad halluces, and clinodactyly.
