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".
For the detection and quantification of endogenous levels of natural and/or recombinant Human MFG-E8 proteins.
LS-F24608 is a 96-well enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for the Quantitative detection of Human MFGE8 /Lactadherin in samples of Cell Culture Supernatants, Plasma, Serum and Urine. It is based upon a Sandwich assay principle and can be used to detect levels of MFGE8 /Lactadherin as low as 10 picograms per milliliter.

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.

MFGE8 (Milk Fat Globule-Egf Factor 8), also called as Lactadherin or SED1, is a protein which in humans is encoded by the MFGE8 gene. Mfge8 is secreted protein found in vertebrates, including mammals as well as birds. By fluorescence in situ hybridization, the MFGE8 gene was mapped to chromosome 15q25. MFGE8 is a factor that links apoptotic cells to phagocytes. It specifically bound to apoptotic cells by recognizing aminophospholipids such as phosphatidylserine. MFGE8, when engaged by phospholipids, bound to cells via its RGD motif. It bound particularly strongly to cells expressing alpha-V-beta-3 integrin. It showed that Mfge8 was expressed in intestinal lamina propria macrophages in mice. Using a wound-healing assay, they showed that Mfge8 promoted migration of intestinal epithelial cells through a PKC-epsilon (PRKCE)-dependent mechanism.
Store at 4°C for 6 months or at -20°C for one year. Avoid freeze/thaw cycles.
Plays an important role in the maintenance of intestinal epithelial homeostasis and the promotion of mucosal healing. Promotes VEGF-dependent neovascularization By similarity. Contributes to phagocytic removal of apoptotic cells in many tissues. Specific ligand for the alpha-v/beta-3 and alpha-v/beta-5 receptors. Also binds to phosphatidylserine-enriched cell surfaces in a receptor-independent manner. Zona pellucida-binding protein which may play a role in gamete interaction.
