In general, rabbit mAbs could have higher specificity and affinity for a target antigen due to their stronger immune response and enhanced means of natural antibody affinity maturation. As a result, 1. The size of epitope that a rabbit IgG can recognized is smaller than that of a mouse IgG (can be as small as only 2-3 amino acids). 2. The rabbit IgG antibody affinity (10^-10~10^-11) can also be higher than mouse IgG antibody (around 10^-9).
