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: Ghrelin is an endogenous ligand for the growth hormone secretagogue receptor that stimulates food intake and transduces signals to hypothalamic regulatory nuclei that control energy homeostasis. JMV3002 is a potent ghrelin receptor antagonist with an IC50 value of 1.1 nM in vitro. At 80 ug/kg, JMV3002 inhibits hexarelin-stimulated food intake by as much as 98% in rats. JMV3002 alone does not elicit growth hormone release nor does it inhibit hexarelin-stimulated growth hormone secretion when tested in infant rats at a dose of 160 ug/kg.
JMV3002 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 JMV3002 in these solvents is approximately 20 mg/ml. JMV3002 is sparingly soluble in aqueous buffers. For maximum solubility in aqueous buffers, the methyl acetate solution of JMV3002 should be diluted with the aqueous buffer of choice. JMV3002 has a solubility of approximately 0.25 mg/ml in a 1:3 solution of ethanol:PBS (pH 7.2) using this method. We do not recommend storing the aqueous solution for more than one day.
