  • Immunohistochemistry Services

  • 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".

Description: Citrate Synthase (EC is a key enzyme that is present in all living organisms. It catalyzes the conversion of acetyl-CoA and oxaloacetate into citrate and serves as a marker for intact mitochondria. A recent study showed that increased activity of mitochondrial Citrate Synthase is directly associated with metabolic and endocrine abnormalities such as obesity. In LSBio’s Citrate Synthase Activity Assay Kit, Citrate Synthase reacts with substrate mix to form an intermediate, which subsequently reacts with developer to generate the colored product. The rate of color development is proportional to the enzyme activity. The assay is simple, rapid and can detect Citrate Synthase activity less than 1 mU in a variety of samples. K11_AssayResult1.jpg
Citrate Synthase activity in Jurkat cell lysate (10 µg), rat liver lysate (20 µg), purified yeast mitochondria (4 µg) and CS Positive Control (2 µl).
