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".

Fibroblast Growth Factor-10 (FGF-10) is a mitogen mainly produced by mesenchymal stem cells in the lung. FGF-10 belongs to the heparin binding FGF family, and is also known as Keratinocyte Growth Factor-2 (KGF-2). It shares homology with KGF and receptor binding to FGFR2-IIIb. However, while KGF induces proliferation and differentiation of various epithelial cells, FGF-10 promotes budding and branching morphogenesis during the multi-organ development via mesenchymal-epithelial cell interactions. FGF-10 is critical for lung and limb development, and is regulated by Shh during early development. Recombinant Human FGF-10 produced in E. coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 169 amino acids. A fully biologically active molecule, rhFGF-10 has a molecular mass of 19.3 kDa analyzed by reducing SDS-PAGE and is obtained by chromatographic techniques.

FGF10 is a member of the fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family. FGF family members possess broad mitogenic and cell survival activities, and are involved in a variety of biological processes, including embryonic development, cell growth, morphogenesis, tissue repair, tumor growth and invasion. This protein exhibits mitogenic activity for keratinizing epidermal cells, but essentially no activity for fibroblasts, which is similar to the biological activity of FGF7.
