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.
cGAS (Cyclic GMP-AMP synthase) is a nucleotidyltransferase that catalyzes the formation of cyclic GMP-AMP (cGAMP) from ATP and GTP and plays a key role in innate immunity. Catalysis involves both the formation of 2', 5' phosphodiester linkage at the GpA step and the formation of 3', 5' phosphodiester linkage at the ApG step. This produces c[G(2',5')pA(3'5')p] responses. cGAS also binds cytosolic DNA directly, leading to the activation and synthesis of cGAMP. Then, a second messenger binds to and activates TMEM173/STING thereby triggering type-I interferon production. cGAS is also involved in innate immune sensorship of infection, detection of DNA from bacteria, response to cellular stress, DNA damage, and regulation of cellular senescence.
