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".
1. Measured by its ability to bind mouse LIF-Fc in a functional ELISA. 2. Measured by its ability to inhibit the recombinant human LIF mediated inhibition in the M1 mouse myeloid leukemia cells. The ED50 for this effect is typically 5-20 ng/mL in the presence of 2 ng/mL recombinant human LIF.

Aliquot and store at -20°C or -80°C. Avoid freeze-thaw cycles.
CD118 / LIF Receptor Alpha is a protein that belongs to the type I cytokine receptor family. This protein combines with a high-affinity converter subunit, gp130, to form a receptor complex that mediates the action of the leukemia inhibitory factor, a polyfunctional cytokine that is involved in cellular differentiation, proliferation and survival in the adult and the embryo. Mutations in this gene cause Schwartz-Jampel syndrome type 2, a disease belonging to the group of the bent-bone dysplasias.
