This antibody is predicted to react with equine, mouse, rabbit and rat based on sequence homology.
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.
Protein p21 is a tumor suppressor protein which is an inhibitor of Cyclin-dependent kinases (CDK) and is transcriptionally activated by p53. P21 is important in the response of cells to genotoxic stress and a major transcriptional target of p53 protein. The occurrence of p21 in the nucleus executes binding and inhibition activity of cyclin dependent kinases Cdk1 and Cdk2, and blocks the transition from G1 phase into S phase or from G2 phase into mitosis after DNA damage, which enables the repair of damaged DNA. In the cytoplasm, p21 protein has an anti-apoptotic effect. P21 is able to bind to and inhibit caspase 3, as well as the apoptotic kinases ASK1 and JNK. P21 exhibits a dual function in carcinogenesis, and acts as a tumor suppressor, prevents apoptosis, and acts as an oncogene.
