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 (tested or 100% immunogen sequence identity)
Monkey (at least 90% immunogen sequence identity)
IHC - Paraffin (20 µg/ml)
Specificity and Use
CCR2 antibody was raised against synthetic 20 amino acid peptide from 2nd extracellular domain of human CCR2. Percent identity with other species by BLAST analysis: Human, Gorilla (100%); Gibbon (95%); Monkey (90%).
Human CCR2. BLAST analysis of the peptide immunogen showed no homology with other human proteins.
PBS, less than 0.1% sodium azide.
Aliquot and store undiluted at -20°C or below for up to 1 year. Can be stored undiluted at 4°C for up to 1 month. Avoid freeze thaw cycles.
CCR2, a Chemokine Receptor, is a regulator of monocyte/macrophage trafficking and is upregulated in response to inflammation. Resistance to HIV-1 infection or delayed progression to AIDS may be linked to CCR2 polymorphisms. The ligand for CCR2 is monocyte chemoattractant protein (MCP-1), a chemokine produced by endothelial cells, smooth muscle cells, and macrophages.
