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".
Rat Monoclonal [clone EM92] (IgG2a,k) to Mouse POU5F1 / OCT4
Western blot, Flow Cytometry
Mouse POU5F1 / OCT4
Mouse, Human (tested or 100% immunogen sequence identity)
IgG2a,k Monoclonal [EM92]
Specificity and Use
POU5F1 / OCT4 antibody was raised against mouse POU5F1
This EM92 antibody has been tested by western blot analysis of F9 and P19 embryonal carcinoma cell lysates. For western blotting, this antibody can be used at a starting dilution 2 ug\ml. However, the antibody should be titrated for individual experiments.

POU5F1 / OCT4 is a transcription factor containing a POU homeodomain that plays a key role in embryonic development and stem cell pluripotency. Aberrant expression of this gene in adult tissues is associated with tumorigenesis. This gene can participate in a translocation with the Ewing's sarcoma gene on chromosome 21, which also leads to tumor formation. Alternative splicing, as well as usage of alternative AUG and non-AUG translation initiation codons, results in multiple isoforms.
