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".
Hepatocyte Growth Factor (HGF),also known as hepatopoietin-A and scatter factor, is a pleiotropic mitogen belonging to the peptidase S1 family (plasminogen subfamily). It is produced by mesenchymal cells and acts on epithelial cells, endothelial cells and haemopoietic progenitor cells. HGF binds to the proto-oncogenic c-Met receptor to activate a tyrosine kinase signaling cascade. It regulates cell growth, motility and morphogenesis, thus it plays a pivotal role in angiogenesis, tumorogenesis and tissue regeneration.Recombinant human Hepatocyte Growth Factor (rhHGF) is produced in CHO cells and consists of two polypeptide chains (a-chain and ß-chain) held by a single disulfide bond resulting in the formation of a biologically active heterodimer. The a-chain consists of 463 amino acid residues and four kringle domains. The ß-chain consists of 234 amino acid residues. A fully biologically active molecule, rhHGF has a molecular mass of around 88-90 kDa analyzed by reducing SDS-PAGE and is obtained by chromatographic techniques.

Hepatocyte growth factor regulates cell growth, cell motility, and morphogenesis by activating a tyrosine kinase signaling cascade after binding to the proto-oncogenic c-Met receptor. Hepatocyte growth factor is secreted by mesenchymal cells and acts as a multi-functional cytokine on cells of mainly epithelial origin. Its ability to stimulate mitogenesis, cell motility, and matrix invasion gives it a central role in angiogenesis, tumorogenesis, and tissue regeneration.
