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".

IRF5 antibody was raised against recombinant human IRF5 (176-240aa) purified from E. coli.
Recognizes human interferon regulatory factor 5 (IRF5), a 58kD member of the IRF family which acts as a key regulator of interferon gene transcription, and is expressed in B cells and dendritic cells, and is inducible by type I interferon (IFN) in most lymphoid cells. The role of IRF3 and IRF7 as transcriptional mediators of virus- and IFN-induced signaling pathways is well documented. Studies have shown that IRF5 can also regulate IFN gene transcription, but appears to be more restricted in its cellular expression and range of viral stimuli, and has the ability to induce a wide range of chemokines involved in T-lymphocyte recruitment, including RANTES, MCP-1 and IP-10.
Western Blot: LS-C45031 detects a band of approximately 58kD in THP-1 cell lysates.
IRF5 is a member of the interferon regulatory factor (IRF) family, a group of transcription factors with diverse roles, including virus-mediated activation of interferon, and modulation of cell growth, differentiation, apoptosis, and immune system activity. Members of the IRF family are characterized by a conserved N-terminal DNA-binding domain containing tryptophan (W) repeats.
