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)
IgG1 Monoclonal [INN-HFSH-132]
IHC - Paraffin
Specificity and Use
CGA / hCG Alpha antibody was raised against human Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH). Epitope: Amino acids alpha 15-alpha 22.
Recognizes the alpha 4 epitope of the alpha-subunit of Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin (hCG), hLH, hFSH, hTSH and free alpha-subunit. Will not cross-react with glycoprotein hormones of various animal species.
Suitable for use in RIA, ELISA, Immunoprecipitation and Immunohistochemistry: Paraffin.
PBS, 0.09% sodium azide
May be stored at 4°C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid freeze-thaw cycles. Store at -20°C. Aliquots are stable for at least 1 year.
The four human glycoprotein hormones chorionic gonadotropin (CG), luteinizing hormone (LH), follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), and thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) are dimers consisting of alpha and beta subunits that are associated noncovalently. The alpha subunits of these hormones are identical, however, their beta chains are unique and confer biological specificity. The protein encoded by this gene is the alpha subunit and belongs to the glycoprotein hormones alpha chain family.
