  • 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: 1,25-Dihydroxy vitamin D2 is a potent agonist of the vitamin D receptor. Paricalcitol is a synthetic 1,25-dihydroxy vitamin D2 analog. As vitamin D deficiency, associated with chronic kidney disease, leads to an increase in parathyroid hormone (secondary hyperparathyroidism), paricalcitol is used in renal patients to block parathyroid hormone overproduction. Vitamin D deficiency is also a risk factor in cancer, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and diabetes, and paricalcitol may have applications in those contexts as well.

Usage Information

Paricalcitol is supplied as a crystalline solid. A stock solution may be made by dissolving the paricalcitol in the solvent of choice. Paricalcitol is soluble in organic solvents such as ethanol, which should be purged with an inert gas. The solubility of paricalcitol in ethanol is approximately 1 mg/ml. Paricalcitol is slightly soluble in acetone, chloroform, and DMSO. Paricalcitol is sparingly soluble in aqueous solutions. To enhance aqueous solubility, dilute the organic solvent solution into aqueous buffers or isotonic saline. If performing biological experiments, ensure the residual amount of organic solvent is insignificant, since organic solvents may have physiological effects at low concentrations. We do not recommend storing the aqueous solution for more than one day.
