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".
STAT3 is a member of the STAT protein family. In response to cytokines and growth factors, STAT family members are phosphorylated by the receptor associated kinases, and then form homo- or heterodimers that translocate to the cell nucleus where they act as transcription activators. This protein is activated through phosphorylation in response to various cytokines and growth factors including IFNs, EGF, IL5, IL6, HGF, LIF and BMP2.
Formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded human cancer tissue reacted with the primary antibody, which was peroxidase-conjugated to the secondary antibody, followed by AEC staining. This data demonstrates the use of this antibody for immunohistochemistry; clinical relevance has not been evaluated. BC = breast carcinoma; HC = hepatocarcinoma.
Fluorescent confocal image of SY5Y cells stained with phospho-STAT3-S727 antibody. SY5Y cells were fixed with 4% PFA (20 min), permeabilized with Triton X-100 (0.2%, 30 min). Cells were then incubated phospho-STAT3-S727 primary antibody (1:200, 2 h at room temperature). For secondary antibody, Alexa Fluor 488 conjugated donkey anti-rabbit antibody (green) was used (1:1000, 1h). Nuclei were counterstained with Hoechst 33342 (blue) (10 ug/ml, 5 min). Note the highly specific localization of the phospho-STAT3 immunosignal mainly to the nucleus, supported by Human Protein Atlas Data (http://www.proteinatlas.org/ENSG00000168610).
The Phospho-STAT3-S727 antibody is used in western blot to detect Ser727-phosphorylated STAT3 in mouse liver tissue lysates collected before (-) or after (+) stimulation obtained by IL-6 injection in mouse portal vein. Data is kindly provided by Drs. E. Bard-Chapeau and G-S. Feng from the Burnham Institute (La Jolla, CA).
The phospho-STAT3-Ser727 antibody is used in Western blot to detect Ser727-phosphorylated STAT3 in HL-60 tissue lysates collected before (-) or after (+) stimulation obtained by IFN-a.
