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".
Dopamine Receptor D4 (DRD4), a Dopamine Receptor, has been suggested to affect personality, substance dependence, cognition, and emotion. DRD4 binds the antipsychotic medications clozapine and spiperone. DRD4 knock-out mice are anatomically normal but display altered locomotion and sensitivity to drugs such as clozapine, cocaine, and others.
Formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded human brain tissue reacted with DRD4 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.
Western blot of DRD4 Antibody in mouse heart tissue lysates (35 ug/lane). DRD4 (arrow) was detected using the purified antibody.
DRD4 Antibody flow cytometry of CEM cells (right histogram) compared to a negative control cell (left histogram). FITC-conjugated goat-anti-rabbit secondary antibodies were used for the analysis.
