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".
Scn9a encodes the alpha subunit of the type IX voltage-gated sodium channel. These channels, composed of one alpha and one or two beta subunits, mediate changes in cell permeability to sodium ions that are essential for the generation of action potentials. The alpha subunit alone can generate a functional channel in vitro >, but it's kinetic properties are modulated by beta subunits. The type IX channel is tetrodotoxin sensitive and is believed to function in hyperexcitability induced pain.
