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".
Mouse Monoclonal (IgG1) to Human FOLR1 / Folate Receptor Alpha
Human FOLR1 / Folate Receptor Alpha
Human (tested or 100% immunogen sequence identity)
Specificity and Use
FOLR1 / Folate Receptor Alpha antibody was raised against cHO-derived, recombinant human FOLR1 (rhFOLR1; aa25-233; Accession # P15328).
Recognizes human FOLR1.
Suitable for use in Flow Cytometry.
Liquid in saline, 0.5% BSA, 0.09% sodium azide
May be stored at 4°C before opening. DO NOT FREEZE! Stable at 4°C as an undiluted liquid. Dilute only prior to immediate use. Stable for at least 12 months. Freezing Allophycocyanin conjugates will result in a substantial loss of enzymatic activity.
Binds to folate and reduced folic acid derivatives and mediates delivery of 5-methyltetrahydrofolate and folate analogs into the interior of cells. Has high affinity for folate and folic acid analogs at neutral pH. Exposure to slightly acidic pH after receptor endocytosis triggers a conformation change that strongly reduces its affinity for folates and mediates their release. Required for normal embryonic development and normal cell proliferation.
