Is this antibody truly a monoclonal? (I have never heard of a rabbitmonoclonal.)

Thank you for contacting Abcam and for your interest in ab33915.
I can confirm for you that this is indeed a rabbit monoclonal antibody. Rabbit antibodies are generally high affinity and are an ideal species to choose for making antibodies against mouse and rat proteins as many antibodies made in mice or rats will not react against mouse or rat proteins. From our experiences the rabbit immune system appears to be capable of generating affinities against small epitopes which are not recognized by the mouse.
I hope this information is helpful. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any additional questions or concerns.
