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
PDYN / ProDynorphin antibody was raised against leumorphin: Arg-Ser-Gln-Glu-Asn-Pro-Asn-Thr-Tyr-Ser-Glu-Asp-Leu-Asp-Val (rat 14-28).
The antibody blocks specifically with leumorphin (rat only). Cells are found in the paraventricular and supraoptic nucleus and fibres in the lateral hypothalamus in rat brain of colchicine treated 4% FA perfused tissue. Not tested in human.
PDYN / ProDynorphin is a preproprotein that is proteolytically processed to form the secreted opioid peptides beta-neoendorphin, dynorphin, leu-enkephalin, rimorphin, and leumorphin. These peptides are ligands for the kappa-type of opioid receptor. Dynorphin is involved in modulating responses to several psychoactive substances, including cocaine. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding the same protein have been found for this gene.
