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: Limaprost is an analog of prostaglandin E1 (PGE1) with structural modifications intended to give it a prolonged half-life and greater potency. Limaprost is an inhibitor of ADP and collagen-induced platelet aggregation and is 10-1,000 times more potent than PGE1 as an inhibitor of platelet adhesiveness measured in vitro. 3-methoxy Limaprost results from the Michael addition of methanol to the limaprost 2,3 double bond. The resulting novel compound is likely to retain FP receptor agonist activity; however there are no published studies of the pharmacological properties of 3-methoxy limaprost.
3-methoxy Limaprost is supplied as a solution in methyl acetate. To change the solvent, simply evaporate the methyl acetate under a gentle stream of nitrogen and immediately add the solvent of choice. Solvents such as ethanol, DMSO, and dimethyl formamide purged with an inert gas can be used. The solubility of 3-methoxy limaprost in these solvents is approximately 30 mg/ml. Further dilutions of the stock solution into aqueous buffers or isotonic saline should be made prior to performing biological experiments. Ensure that the residual amount of organic solvent is insignificant, since organic solvents may have physiological effects at low concentrations. If an organic solvent-free solution of 3-methoxy limaprost is needed, it can be prepared by evaporating the methyl acetate and directly dissolving the neat oil in aqueous buffers. The solubility of 3-methoxy limaprost in PBS, pH 7.2, is approximately 1 mg/ml. We do not recommend storing the aqueous solution for more than one day.
