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".

GABRA5 antibody was raised against synthetic peptide corresponding to the C-Terminal region of the alpha 5 subunit of rat GABA A receptor ( C-TERMINAL ).
The alpha 5 subunit of gamma-aminobutyric acid A (GABAA ) receptor. GABAA receptors are GABA gated chloride channels, which are important mediators of neuronal inhibition in the mammalian central nervous system. Activation of the GABAA site results in increased intracellular chloride concentration and hyperpolarization of the cell. GABAA receptors are pentameric structures assembled from a family of distinct subunits. At least fourteen distinct subunits have been identified, which show distinct patterns of temporal and spatial expression. GABAA receptors may be modulated by several drug types including benzodiazepines and barbiturates, and by phosphorylation by protein kinase C (PKC) and protein kinase A (PKA).
Western Blot: LS-C43097 detects a band of approximately 55kD in rat brain membrane fractions.
GABA is the major inhibitory neurotransmitter in the mammalian brain where it acts at GABA-A receptors, which are ligand-gated chloride channels. Chloride conductance of these channels can be modulated by agents such as benzodiazepines that bind to the GABA-A receptor. At least 16 distinct subunits of GABA-A receptors have been identified. Transcript variants utilizing three different alternative non-coding first exons have been described.
