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.
eIF4A2 is a 407 amino acid ATP-dependent RNA helicase belonging to the DEAD box helicase family. It contains one helicase ATP-binding domain and a helicase C-terminal domain. eIF4A2, a subunit of the eIF4F complex, acts as a protein-synthesis initiation factor and thus plays an important role in the binding of mRNA to the 43S pre-initiation complex of ribosomes. Human eIF4A2 interacts with the NS5B protein of Hepatitis C virus (HCV) and facilitates the genomic RNA synthesis of NS5B protein by unwinding the secondary structure of the HCV genome. It is ubiquitously expressed in most of normal tissues, but in variable amounts.
