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.
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".

CENPA / CENP-A antibody was raised against synthetic peptide (RRRSRKPEAPRRRS) corresponding to amino acids 4-17 of human CENP-A. KLH conjugated. Percent identity by BLAST analysis: Human, Gorilla, Monkey (100%); Gibbon, Rabbit (93%); Nectri (86%).
Recognizes human CENP-A, Mr17kD. Broad species cross-reactivity predicted due to sequence conservation.
Suitable for use in Western Blot analysis. Western Blot Analysis: 1:200-1:1000 detected CENP-A in RIPA lysates from HeLa acid extracted histones. 20 ug control histones, were resolved by electrophoresis, transferred to nitrocellulose and probed with 2 ug/ml anti-CENP-A. Proteins were visualized using a goat anti-rabbit secondary antibody conjugated to HRP and a chemiluminescence detection system.
0.1 M Tris-Glycine, pH 7.4, 0.15 M NaCl, 5 mg/ml BSA, 0.05% Sodium Azide, 30% Glycerol
Short term: 4°C. Long term: Store at -20°C. Avoid freeze-thaw cycles.
Histone H3-like variant which exclusively replaces conventional H3 in the nucleosome core of centromeric chromatin at the inner plate of the kinetochore. Required for recruitment and assembly of kinetochore proteins, mitotic progression and chromosome segregation. May serve as an epigenetic mark that propagates centromere identity through replication and cell division. The CENPA-H4 heterotetramer can bind DNA by itself (in vitro).
