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.
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".

IRAK4 / IRAK-4 antibody was raised against kLH-conjugated, synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids 436-459 (CLHEKKNKRPDIKKVQQLLQEMTA) of human IRAK4. The immunizing sequence has 21/24 identical amino acids in mouse. Percent identity by BLAST analysis: Human, Gibbon, Marmoset, Porcine (100%); Gorilla, Monkey, Elephant, Horse (96%); Bovine, Rabbit, Platypus (92%); Mouse, Hamster, Bat (88%); Rat (83%).
Recognizes IRAK4, Mr ~52kD. Species cross-reactivity: Human. Predicted to cross-react with mouse based on sequence homology.
Suitable for use in Western Blot. Western Blot: 0.5 ug/ml detects IRAK4 in RIPA lysates from HeLa and A431 cells. HeLa cell lysate was resolved by electrophoresis, transferred to nitrocellulose and probed with anti-IRAK4 (0.5 ug/ml). Proteins were visualized using a goat anti-rabbit secondary antibody conjugated to HRP and a chemiluminescence detection system.

Serine/threonine-protein kinase that plays a critical role in initiating innate immune response against foreign pathogens. Involved in Toll-like receptor (TLR) and IL-1R signaling pathways. Is rapidly recruited by MYD88 to the receptor-signaling complex upon TLR activation to form the Myddosome together with IRAK2. Phosphorylates initially IRAK1, thus stimulating the kinase activity and intensive autophosphorylation of IRAK1.
