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".
Epithelial cellderived neutrophilactivating peptide (ENA78) also known as C-X-C motif chemokine 5(CXCL5), is a small cytokine belonging to the CXC chemokine family. It is produced following stimulation of cells with the inflammatory cytokines interleukin-1 or tumor necrosis factor-alpha. Expression of CXCL5 has also been observed in eosinophils, and can be inhibited with the type II interferon, IFN-?. This chemokine stimulates the chemotaxis of neutrophils possessing angiogenic properties. Full length CXCL5 (78 aa) is trimmed at the Nterminal end by cathepsin G and chymotrypsin to ENA-74 (74 aa) and ENA-70 (70aa), with the shortened forms showing increased potency relative to full length CXCL5. CXCL5can signal through the CXCR2 receptor.Recombinant human ENA-78/CXCL5 (5-78a.a.) produced in E.coli is a single non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 74 amino acids. A fully biologically active molecule, rh ENA-78/CXCL5 (5-78a.a.) has a molecular mass of 8 kDa analyzed by reducing SDS-PAGE and is obtained by chromatographic techniques.
CXCL5 is a protein that is a member of the CXC subfamily of chemokines. Chemokines, which recruit and activate leukocytes, are classified by function (inflammatory or homeostatic) or by structure. This protein is proposed to bind the G-protein coupled receptor chemokine (C-X-C motif) receptor 2 to recruit neutrophils, to promote angiogenesis and to remodel connective tissues. This protein is thought to play a role in cancer cell proliferation, migration, and invasion.
