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, Monkey, Mouse, Rat, Bovine, Guinea pig, Horse, Pig, Rabbit, Chicken, Xenopus (tested or 100% immunogen sequence identity)
IHC - Paraffin (5 µg/ml), Western blot (0.2 - 1 µg/ml)
Specificity and Use
PHACTR1 antibody was raised against synthetic peptide located between aa468-517 of human PHACTR1 (Q9C0D0, NP_112210). Percent identity by BLAST analysis: Human, Gorilla, Monkey, Marmoset, Mouse, Rat, Bovine, Rabbit, Horse, Pig, Opossum, Guinea pig, Zebra finch, Chicken, Xenopus (100%); Turkey (81%).
Immunohistochemistry: LS-B4000 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-B4000 was determined to be 5 ug/ml. Western Blot: Suggested dilution at 1µg/ml in 5% skim milk / PBS buffer, and HRP conjugated anti-Rabbit IgG should be diluted in 1: 50,000 - 100,000 as second antibody. ELISA titer in peptide based assay: 1:62500.

Long term: -20°C, the use of 50% glycerol is recommended if storing aliquots in -20°C for long term use (up to 1 year); Short term (less than one week): +4°C. Avoid repeat freeze-thaw cycles.
Binds actin monomers (G actin) and plays a role in the reorganization of the actin cytoskeleton and in formation of actin stress fibers. Plays a role in cell motility. Plays a role in the formation of tubules by endothelial cells. Regulates PPP1CA activity. Required for normal cell survival.
