  • 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: QX-314 is a membrane-impermeant lidocaine derivative that selectively blocks sodium channels on nociceptive neurons when delivered intracellularly via the TRPV1 channel, but is reportedly ineffective with extracellular application. When supplied in combination with 1 µM capsaicin, a TRPV1 receptor agonist, 5 mM QX-314 blocks 98% of sodium current in voltage-clamped nociceptive DRG neurons. QX-314 elicits a long-lasting decrease in the response to painful mechanical and thermal stimuli without imparting the motor deficits (e.g., numbness, paralysis) associated with many conventional local anesthetics. At concentrations ranging from 10-70 mM, peripheral application of QX-314 dose-dependently produces robust local anesthesia with slow onset in the guinea pig intradermal wheal assay, the murine tail-flick test, and the murine sciatic nerve blockade model. However, injection of 0.5-30 mM QX-314 in the lumbar intrathecal space produces neurotoxicity and death in mice. H53_ChemicalStructureImage.png

Usage Information

QX-314 (bromide) is supplied as a crystalline solid. A stock solution may be made by dissolving the QX-314 (bromide) in an organic solvent purged with an inert gas. QX-314 (bromide) is soluble in organic solvents such as ethanol, DMSO, and dimethyl formamide. The solubility of QX-314 (bromide) in these solvents is approximately 2, 20, and 5 mg/ml, respectively. 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. Organic solvent-free aqueous solutions of QX-314 (bromide) can be prepared by directly dissolving the crystalline compound in aqueous buffers. The solubility of QX-314 (bromide) in PBS, pH 7.2, is approximately 10 mg/ml. We do not recommend storing the aqueous solution for more than one day.
