  • 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: Prostaglandin E2 activates four distinct G protein-coupled receptors, EP1-4. Rivenprost is a potent and selective agonist for the EP4 receptor (Ki = 0.7, 56, 620, and >10,000 nM for EP4, EP3, EP2, and EP1, respectively). It has been used to promote EP4-mediated bone formation, prevent bone loss related to osteoporosis, drive osteoblast differentiation, and stabilize bone implants. Rivenprost has also been used to support wound healing. H93_ChemicalStructureImage.png

Usage Information

Rivenprost 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 (DMF) purged with an inert gas can be used. The solubility of rivenprost in ethanol and DMF is approximately 30 mg/ml and approximately 20 mg/ml in DMSO. 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 rivenprost is needed, it can be prepared by evaporating the methyl acetate and directly dissolving the neat oil in aqueous buffers. The solubility of rivenprost in PBS, pH 7.2, is approximately 3 mg/ml. We do not recommend storing the aqueous solution for more than one day.
