AbFlex® Recombinant Antibodies defined antibodies for highly specific, reproducible performance.AbFlex® antibodies are recombinant antibodies (rAbs) that have been generated using defined DNA sequences to produce highly specific, reproducible antibodies. The unique advantages of the AbFlex® antibody are its flexible labeling and purification options. Each AbFlex® antibody contains a Sortase recognition motif (LPXTG) to covalently add fluorophores, enzymatic substrates (HRP, AP...etc), peptides, DNA, drugs or other labels to the antibody in a directed and reproducible manner using our Sortag-IT Labeling Kits. Every antibody also contains a 6xHis tag, which can be used with nickel-based purification systems, and an avidin tag sequence for enzymatic biotin conjugation using the biotin ligase, BirA.AbFlex® antibodies are specifically labeled at the end of the constant region of the heavy chain to avoid interference with antigen recognition and functionality. This is important as it ensures the labeling process maintains the integrity of the antibody so signal is not diminished as a result of non-functional antibodies. In contrast, commonly used chemical labeling methods add labels to the antibody in a random fashion. The randomness of this process has a high potential to block the antigen-binding site and render the antibody ineffective. Chemical labeling can also deposit labels on the Fc region of the antibody which has the potential to obstruct interactions with protein A.
