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
SLC2A4 / GLUT-4 antibody was raised against a synthetic peptide made to an internal portion of the human GLUT4 protein (between residues 480-530) [UniProt P14672]. Percent identity by BLAST analysis: Rat (100%).
The applications listed have been tested for the unconjugated form of this product. Other forms have not been tested.

Aliquot and store at -20°C or -80°C. Avoid freeze-thaw cycles.
SLC2A4 / GLUT-4 is a member of the solute carrier family 2 (facilitated glucose transporter) family and encodes a protein that functions as an insulin-regulated facilitative glucose transporter. In the absence of insulin, this integral membrane protein is sequestered within the cells of muscle and adipose tissue. Within minutes of insulin stimulation, the protein moves to the cell surface and begins to transport glucose across the cell membrane.
