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".
Human (tested or 100% immunogen sequence identity)
IHC (1 µg/ml)
Western blot (1 - 3 µg/ml)
ELISA (0.1 - 1 µg/ml)
Specificity and Use
SMAD3 antibody was raised against a 20 amino acid synthetic peptide derived from a central portion of the linker domain of human Smad3.
Recognizes human Smad3. The antibody shows very minor cross-reactivity with Smad2 (using relatively high concentrations of recombinant Smad2).
Suitable for use in ELISA, Immunohistochemistry and Western Blot. ELISA: 0.1-1 ug/ml. Western Blot: 1-3 ug/ml. Immunohistochemistry: 1 ug/ml Requires HIER with EDTA, pH 8.0 prior to staining. Positive control: Western Blot: human Smad3-transfected COS.
PBS, pH 7.4, 0.05% sodium azide.
Long term: Add glycerol (40-50%) -20°C; Short term: +4°C

Receptor-regulated SMAD (R-SMAD) that is an intracellular signal transducer and transcriptional modulator activated by TGF-beta (transforming growth factor) and activin type 1 receptor kinases. Binds the TRE element in the promoter region of many genes that are regulated by TGF-beta and, on formation of the SMAD3/SMAD4 complex, activates transcription. Also can form a SMAD3/SMAD4/JUN/FOS complex at the AP-1/SMAD site to regulate TGF-beta-mediated transcription.
