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
PLAU / Urokinase / uPA antibody was raised against native human uPA.
Recognizes the A-chain of human uPA. Binds single and two-chain uPA, uPA/PAI-1 complex and uPA/uPAR complex. A reaction is seen with the amino terminal fragment (ATF) but not with LMW uPA. Reacts with reduced and non-reduced uPA in Western blotting. It in
Suitable for use in ELISA, Western blot and Immunohistochemistry. Immunohistochemistry: frozen sections.
PBS, pH 7.4, 15 mM sodium azide
Long term: Add glycerol (40-50%) -20°C; Short term: +4°C
PLAU / Urokinase / uPA is a serine protease involved in degradation of the extracellular matrix and possibly tumor cell migration and proliferation. A specific polymorphism in this gene may be associated with late-onset Alzheimer's disease and also with decreased affinity for fibrin-binding. This protein converts plasminogen to plasmin by specific cleavage of an Arg-Val bond in plasminogen.
