  • 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: The free fatty acid receptor 1 (FFAR1; GPR40) is highly expressed in pancreatic beta -cells and activated by medium and long-chain fatty acids. There is evidence of a link between FFAR1 (GPR40) and the ability of fatty acids to amplify glucose-stimulated insulin secretion, making this signaling pathway a potential target for regulating diabetes, obesity, and other metabolic disorders. TAK-875 is a selective FFAR1 (GPR40) agonist (EC50 = 26 nM) that does not exhibit activity on the related FFARs FFAR2 (GPR43) or FFAR3 (GPR41). H136_ChemicalStructureImage.png

Usage Information

TAK-875 is supplied as a crystalline solid. A stock solution may be made by dissolving the TAK-875 in the solvent of choice. TAK-875 is soluble in organic solvents such as DMSO and dimethyl formamide, which should be purged with an inert gas. The solubility of TAK-875 in these solvents is approximately 30 mg/ml. TAK-875 is sparingly soluble in aqueous buffers. For maximum solubility in aqueous buffers, TAK-875 should first be dissolved in DMSO and then diluted with the aqueous buffer of choice. TAK-875 has a solubility of approximately 0.5 mg/ml in a 1:1 solution of DMSO:PBS (pH 7.2) using this method. We do not recommend storing the aqueous solution for more than one day.
