Work with LifeSpan to design a custom immunohistochemistry to address your specific biological question. Outsource the entire localization process without having to
worry about finding and characterizing target specific antibodies, sourcing and validating difficult-to-find tissues, and having the ability to interpret the resulting
immunostaining in relation to complex human pathologies.
TCR Screening Services
Test your therapeutic antibodies in immunohistochemistry against a broad panel of normal frozen human tissue types in order to determine potential unintended binding.
Our non-GLP TCR services are designed on the FDA recommendation outlined in their "Points to Consider in the Manufacture and Testing of Monoclonal Antibody Products for Human Use".
Recognizes 4-hydroxynonenal (HNE). A 65 kD, highly reactive aldehyde released upon oxidation of omega-6-insaturated fatty acids, often by free radicals. HNE acts to spread and increase the initial effects of free radical events. It binds nucleic acids, phospholipids and sulfhydryl, histidine and lysine groups. These conjugates cause the cytotoxic effects (including cell death) that occur during oxidative stress due to hydrogen peroxide, superoxide, UV, heat and oxidant chemicals. HNE plays a role in the pathogenesis of diseases, stimulating fibrogenesis and inflammation. It is thought to act as a sensor of external stimuli, inducing the stress response by modulating membrane receptors such as Epidermal growth factor receptor or Fas. It is thought that constitutive levels of HNE may be needed for normal cell functions as decreased HNE levels are associated with cell proliferation and increased HNE levels with elevated apoptosis.
