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, Monkey (tested or 100% immunogen sequence identity)
IHC - Paraffin (1 - 2 µg/ml)
Specificity and Use
FPR1 / FPR antibody was raised against synthetic 16 amino acid peptide from 3rd extracellular domain of human FPR1. Percent identity with other species by BLAST analysis: Human, Chimpanzee, Monkey (100%); Gorilla (94%); Orangutan (88%).
Formyl peptide receptor 1, a Chemoattractant Receptor, mediates chemotaxis, degranulation, and superoxide production, as part of the inflammatory response. Bacterial N-formylmethionyl peptides and Annexin A1, specific ligands for FPR1, attract polymorphonuclear neutrophils to sites of infection. FPR receptors promote the phosphorylation and downregulation of CCR5, which has been shown to inhibit HIV infection. Therefore, ligands for an FPR receptor may be able to inhibit HIV infection.
