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".
Human, Mouse, Rat (tested or 100% immunogen sequence identity)
IHC - Paraffin (1:400)
IHC - Frozen (10 - 50 µg/ml)
Specificity and Use
Synthetic peptide from a cytoplasmic domain of human CACNA1C (Cav1.2) conjugated to an immunogenic carrier protein. The antigen shares 96% identity with mouse, rat and rabbit sequence.
Specific for CACNA1C.
IHC: Antigen retrieval is essential for use on paraffin sections.
Lyophilized. Centrifuge to remove any insoluble material
500 µl Sterile water
Maintain lyophilized and reconstituted antibodies at -20°C for long term storage and at 2-8°C for a shorter term. When reconstituting, glycerol (1:1) may be added for an additional stability. Avoid freeze/thaw cycles.
Voltage-sensitive calcium channels (VSCC) mediate the entry of calcium ions into excitable cells and are also involved in a variety of calcium-dependent processes, including muscle contraction, hormone or neurotransmitter release, gene expression, cell motility, cell division and cell death. The isoform alpha-1C gives rise to L-type calcium currents. Long-lasting (L-type) calcium channels belong to the 'high-voltage activated' (HVA) group.
