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".
Beclin 1 is a coiled coil protein that interacts with prototypic cellular antiapoptotic gene Bcl2. Beclin 1 is widely expressed with highest levels reported in skeletal muscle. Three alternativaly spliced isoforms have been identified. Allelic deletion of beclin 1 results in a wide variety of cancers including breast cancer.
Formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded human cancer tissue reacted with the primary antibody, which was peroxidase-conjugated to the secondary antibody, followed by DAB staining. This data demonstrates the use of this antibody for immunohistochemistry; clinical relevance has not been evaluated. BC = breast carcinoma; HC = hepatocarcinoma.
Western blot of anti-hBECN1-E225 antibody in 293 cell line lysates transiently transfected with the BECN1 gene (2 ug/lane). hBECN1-E225(arrow) was detected using the purified antibody.
The anti-BECN1 antibody is used in Western blot to detect BECN1 in, from left to right, A2058, HeLa, mouse brain, Y79, and HL60 tissue lysates. BECN1(arrow) was detected using the purified antibody.
Flow cytometric of Y79 cells using Beclin 1 (BECN1/APG6) Antibody (E225) (bottom histogram) compared to a negative control cell (top histogram). FITC-conjugated goat-anti-rabbit secondary antibodies were used for the analysis.
