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".
Rabies Virus (tested or 100% immunogen sequence identity)
IgG2a Monoclonal [1C5]
IHC - Frozen
Specificity and Use
Purified rabies virus.
Recognizes the glycoprotein of rabies virus, a Lyssavirus that causes rabies in mammals. The virus is found in the saliva of infected animals and is mostly spread though bites. The virus then travels though the peripheral nervous system to the central nervous system. Once it reaches the brain it causes acute encephalitis. Symptoms include paralysis, cerebral dysfunction, anxiety, insomnia, confusion, anger, paranoia, terror and hallucination. The production of a large amount of saliva, the inability to speak or swallow and associated hydrophobia is also common in the later stages of the disease. The time between exposure to the virus and onset of symptoms can range from about 2 weeks to several months. Once symptoms appear, death is virtually inevitable. However, the disease can be effectively treated by post-exposure prophylaxis, through vaccination, provided this is done as soon as possible. Recognizes the purified glycoprotein of the rabies virus as well as the native virus. It has been shown to react with intact infected BHK cells and has therapeutic effect on infected mice. The antibody has virus-neutralizing activity with several rabies virus strains such as CVS, Lagos bat, Mokola, Flury LEP and Duvenhage.
