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".

MUC4 antibody was raised against rat ASGP-2.
Recognizes an epitope on the ASGP-2 subunit, which is one of the main subunits that comprise the MUC4 glycoprotein complex. Reactivity is confirmed with ASGP-2 transfected COS-7 cells and rat microvilli isolated from ascites cells of 13762 rat mammary adenocarcinoma. Species cross-reactivity: Human and mouse.
Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot, and Immunohistochemistry. Western Blot: 1-2 ug/ml. ELISA: <0.1 ug/ml. Immunohistochemistry: 2-5 ug/ml Heat-induced epitope retrieval (Citrate buffer, pH 6.0).
May play a role in tumor progression. Ability to promote tumor growth may be mainly due to repression of apoptosis as opposed to proliferation. Has anti-adhesive properties. Seems to alter cellular behavior through both anti-adhesive effects on cell-cell and cell-extracellular matrix interactions and in its ability to act as an intramembrane ligand for ERBB2. Plays an important role in cell proliferation and differentiation of epithelial cells by inducing specific phosphorylation of ERBB2.
