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".
Rabbit Polyclonal (IgG) to Human MC5R / MC5 Receptor
Human MC5R / MC5 Receptor
Human, Monkey (tested or 100% immunogen sequence identity)
Western blot (1:500 - 1:3000)
Specificity and Use
MC5R / MC5 Receptor antibody was raised against synthetic peptide corresponding to a region within amino acids 1 and 45 of MC5 Receptor (SwissProt P33032). Percent identity by BLAST analysis: Human, Monkey (100%).
0.1 M Tris-glycine, pH 7.0, 10% glycerol, 0.01% Thimerosal
Keep as concentrated solution. Aliquot and store at -20°C or below. Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
MC5R, a Melanocortin Receptor, mediates the effects of melanocyte-stimulating hormone (MSH) and adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), and activates adenylate cyclase. This receptor controls multiple functions in the brain and in peripheral tissues, such as thermoregulation, immunomodulation, appetite control, and sexual behavior.
