  • Immunohistochemistry Services

  • 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: Hydroxymethylglutaryl-coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase is the rate-limiting enzyme in the cholesterol biosynthetic pathway and the target of the “statin” class of cholesterol-lowering drugs. Simvastatin is a competitive inhibitor of HMG-CoA reductase with a Ki value of 0.12 nM for the hydrolyzed, open ring form of the molecule. Simvastatin is marketed under the trade name Zocor™ and is often prescribed in combination with ezetimibe (Zetia) to treat dyslipidemia. This drug combination is known commercially as Vytorin™ or Inegy™. After 18 days of treatment with simvastatin in dogs at a dose of 8 mg/kg per day, plasma cholesterol levels were reduced by 33%. Simvastatin also suppresses TNF-induced NF- kappa B activation (IC50 ~ 13 µM), which potentiates apoptosis in human myeloid leukemia cells and thus may be useful in treating cancer.

Usage Information

Simvastatin is supplied as a crystalline solid. A stock solution may be made by dissolving the simvastatin in the solvent of choice. Simvastatin is soluble in organic solvents such as ethanol, DMSO, and dimethyl formamide, which should be purged with an inert gas. The solubility of raltegravir (potassium salt) in these solvents is approximately 20 mg/ml. Simvastatin is sparingly soluble in aqueous buffers. For maximum solubility in aqueous buffers, simvastatin should first be dissolved in DMSO and then diluted with the aqueous buffer of choice. Simvastatin 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.
