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".
This kit is for the detection of natural and recombinant human Biglycan. No significant cross-reactivity or interference between Biglycan and analogs was observed.
LS-F10516 is a 96-well enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for the Quantitative detection of Human BGN / Biglycan in samples of Cell Culture Supernatants, Plasma, Serum and Tissue Homogenates. It is based upon a Sandwich assay principle and can be used to detect levels of BGN / Biglycan as low as 156 picograms per milliliter.
All LSBio Custom kits have been predesigned and all necessary components, including antibodies and standards have been identified. Upon receiving a custom kit order, the kit will be assembled and quality control tested before being shipped out. Kit assembly and testing typically takes 4 to 6 weeks. In most cases the final kit is based on the Sandwich assay principle, with a few being Competitive EIA based. Specifications such as Range, Sensitivity, and Precision are defined upon completion. In the event that the custom kit cannot be successfully developed with 6 weeks of the order date, the customer will be notified and the order canceled at no cost.
Due to their limited shelf life, LSBio ELISA kits are not typically stocked as finished goods. Upon receipt of an order each kit is assembled and tested to ensure that it meets specifications before shipping. Minor changes may occur to the Range, Sensitivity, and Precision. In the event of a significant change the order would be confirmed with the customer before shipping. ELISA kit lot numbers reflect the date of final assembly and testing for each specific kit rather than a bulk manufactured lot. All kits are tested to confirm that they fall within their defined Inter- and Intra- assay coefficient of variation.

Biglycan (BGN) is a small leucine-rich repeat proteoglycan (SLRP) which is found in a variety of extracellular matrix tissues, including bone, cartilage and tendon. It is an important structural component of articular cartilage and participates in the assembly of the chondrocyte extracellular matrix through formation of protein interactions with type VI collagen and large proteoglycan aggregates. In humans, Biglycan is encoded by the BGN gene. It is mapped to Xq28. Biglycan is believed to play a role in the mineralisation of bone, and its core protein binds to the growth factors BMP-4 and influences its bioactivity. It has been reported that the presence of biglycan is necessary for BMP-4 to exert its effects on osteoblasts. There is also evidence that biglycan can bind to TGF-beta 1. In addition, Biglycan plays an important role in cell signaling.
Store at 4°C for 6 months, at -20°C for 12 months. Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles. Shipped with wet ice.
BGN / Biglycan is a small cellular or pericellular matrix proteoglycan that is closely related in structure to two other small proteoglycans, decorin and fibromodulin. The encoded protein and decorin are thought to be the result of a gene duplication. Decorin contains one attached glycosaminoglycan chain, while this protein probably contains two chains. For this reason, this protein is called biglycan. This protein plays a role in assembly of collagen fibrils and muscle regeneration.
