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".

BLT1 is a Chemoattractant Receptor that binds the potent chemoattractant leukotriene B4 (LTB4) which is involved in defense against infection. Leukotriene B4 also activates the transcription factor PPAR alpha, resulting in the activation of genes that terminate inflammatory processes (Yokomizo et al., 1997). Although BLT1 shows homology to other P2Y receptors, it does not function as a purinoreceptor ( Yokomizo et al., 1997).
