  • 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".

Specificity and Use

MMP2 antibody was raised against synthetic oligopeptide corresponding to aa residues 468-483 (VTPRDKPMGPLLVATF) of human MMP-2. Percent identity by BLAST analysis: Human, Gorilla, Gibbon, Monkey, Pig (100%); Marmoset, Mouse, Rat, Sheep, Hamster, Elephant, Panda, Dog, Rabbit, Horse (94%); Bovine (88%); Chicken (81%).
Recognizes the precursor and active forms of human MMP-2. Species cross-reactivity: mouse, rat, rabbit, porcine, bovine and equine MMP-2, but not with human MMP-1, 3, 9 and 13.
Immunohistochemistry: LS-B2641 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, slides were incubated with biotinylated secondary antibody, followed by alkaline phosphatase-streptavidin and chromogen. The stained slides were evaluated by a pathologist to confirm staining specificity. The optimal working concentration for LS-B2641 was determined to be 10 ug/ml.


0.1 M PBS, pH 7.0, 2% BSA (protease free).
Short term 4°C, long term aliquot and store at -20°C, avoid freeze thaw cycles.

Ubiquitinous metalloproteinase that is involved in diverse functions such as remodeling of the vasculature, angiogenesis, tissue repair, tumor invasion, inflammation, and atherosclerotic plaque rupture. As well as degrading extracellular matrix proteins, can also act on several nonmatrix proteins such as big endothelial 1 and beta-type CGRP promoting vasoconstriction. Also cleaves KISS at a Gly-|-Leu bond. Appears to have a role in myocardial cell death pathways.


Anti-MMP2 antibody IHC of human kidney. Immunohistochemistry of formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue after heat-induced antigen retrieval. Antibody LS-B2641 concentration 10 ug/ml.
