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".

EIF2S1 antibody was raised against recombinant Human Eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2 subunit 1 protein (276-315AA)
Functions in the early steps of protein synthesis by forming a ternary complex with GTP and initiator tRNA. This complex binds to a 40S ribosomal subunit, followed by mRNA binding to form a 43S preinitiation complex. Junction of the 60S ribosomal subunit to form the 80S initiation complex is preceded by hydrolysis of the GTP bound to eIF-2 and release of an eIF-2-GDP binary complex. In order for eIF-2 to recycle and catalyze another round of initiation, the GDP bound to eIF-2 must exchange with GTP by way of a reaction catalyzed by eIF-2B.

EIF2 is a translation initiation factor that catalyzes the first regulated step of protein synthesis, promoting the binding of the initiator tRNA to 40s ribosomal subunits. eIF2 is composed of 3 non identical subunits, alpha, beta and gamma. Binding occurs as a ternary complex of methionyl-tRNA, eIF2 and GTP. The rate of complex formation is modulated by the phosphorylation state of eIF2alpha. Phosphorylation of eIF2alpha has been shown to occur in response to heat shock and hypoxic stress.
