  • 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 (PGE2) exerts its effects through four separate G coupled-protein receptors (EP1-4). L-161,982 is a potent and selective EP4 receptor antagonist. It demonstrates selective binding to human EP4 receptors with a Ki value of 0.024 µM compared to other receptors of the prostanoid family, EP1, EP2, EP3, DP, FP, and IP, with Ki values of 17, 23, 1.9, 5.1, 5.6, and 6.7 µM, respectively. L-161,982 at 10 mg/kg/day suppresses PGE2-stimulated bone formation in young rats and at 100 nM reverses the anti-inflammatory action of PGE2 in LPS-activated human macrophages. At 10 µM L-161982 blocks PGE2-induced cell proliferation in HCA-7 colon cancer cells. H60_ChemicalStructureImage.png

Usage Information

L-161,982 is supplied as a crystalline solid. A stock solution may be made by dissolving the L-161,982 in an organic solvent purged with an inert gas. L-161,982 is soluble in organic solvents such as DMSO and dimethyl formamide. The solubility of L-161,982 in these solvents is approximately 10 mg/ml. If aqueous stock solutions are required for biological experiments, they can best be prepared by diluting the organic solvent into aqueous buffers or isotonic saline. Ensure that 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.
