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, Primate (tested or 100% immunogen sequence identity)
IgG1 Monoclonal [MEM-E/06]
Protein A purified
IHC - Paraffin (10 µg/ml)
Specificity and Use
HLA-E antibody was raised against bacterially expressed recombinant HLA-E refolded with beta2-microglobulin and peptide.
Recognized native surface-expressed HLA-E, but not denatured heavy chain of HLA-E. HLA-E belongs to the MHC Class I molecules (MHC Class Ib; nonclassical) and it is expressed on many types of the human cells. The published results showed that the antibody cross-reacts with some classical MHC Class I molecules (HLA-A3, -A11, -B7). However, the recent Workshop I Session on the 3rd International Conference on HLA-G (Paris, July 2003) confirmed that the antibody exhibits much broader cross-reactivity classical MHC Class I antigens, namely with HLA-A24, -A32, -B8, -B15, -B27, -B35, -B44, -B54, -C3, -C4, -C5, -C7
Immunohistochemistry: This antibody was validated for use in immunohistochemistry on a panel of 21 formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) human tissues after heat induced antigen retrieval in pH 6.0 citrate buffer. After incubation with the primary antibody,
Tris buffered saline (TBS), 15 mM sodium azide, approx., pH 8.0. Sourced in Ascites.
Short term 4°C, long term aliquot and store at -20°C, avoid freeze thaw cycles.
