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".
Proto-oncogene with serine/threonine kinase activity involved in cell survival and cell proliferation. Exerts its oncogenic activity through: the regulation of MYC transcriptional activity, the regulation of cell cycle progression, the regulation of cap-dependent protein translation and through survival signaling by phosphorylation of a pro-apoptotic protein, BAD. Phosphorylation of MYC leads to an increase of MYC protein stability and thereby an increase transcriptional activity.
Formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded human cancer tissue reacted with the primary antibody, which was peroxidase-conjugated to the secondary antibody, followed by DAB staining. This data demonstrates the use of this antibody for immunohistochemistry; clinical relevance has not been evaluated. BC = breast carcinoma; HC = hepatocarcinoma.
Western blot of anti-PIM2 Antibody in HeLa cell line lysates (35 ug/lane). PIM2 (arrow) was detected using the purified antibody.
Western blot of PIM2 (arrow) using rabbit polyclonal PIM2 Antibody (D292). 293 cell lysates (2 ug/lane) either nontransfected (Lane 1) or transiently transfected (Lane 2) with the PIM2 gene.
PIM proteins were immunoprecipitated from MV4;11 cells and the agarose-protein A-immunoprecipitate complex was tested for its ability to phosphorylate BAD in vitro in the presence or absence of K00135. Phosphorylation of BAD (both on Ser112 and Ser136, detected by WB with phospho-specific antibodies) was abrogated on addition of the compound. Asterisks, strong bands corresponding to the heavy chain of the anti-PIM2 rabbit antibody recognized by the antirabbit immunoglobulin G secondary antibody. Beads alone (without anti-PIM antibodies) were incubated with the MV4;11 extract and used for the same in vitro phosphorylation reaction as a negative control.
