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, Guinea pig (tested or 100% immunogen sequence identity)
Mouse, Rat, Bovine
Specificity and Use
MMP9 / Gelatinase B antibody was raised against a synthetic peptide from the middle region of human MMP-9.
Reacts with a 92 kD pro form and 86 kD active form of MMP-9. MMPs are proteolytic enzymes capable of degrading connective tissue components. MMPs play a crucial role in tumor cell invasion and metastasis. This antibody cross reacts with human and Guinea pig. It does not react with mouse, rat and cow.

Proteins of the matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) family are involved in the breakdown of extracellular matrix in normal physiological processes, such as embryonic development, reproduction, and tissue remodeling, as well as in disease processes, such as arthritis and metastasis. Most MMP's are secreted as inactive proproteins which are activated when cleaved by extracellular proteinases. The enzyme encoded by this gene degrades type IV and V collagens.
