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".
SPARC Protein, Basement-membrane protein 40 Protein, BM-40 Protein, Cysteine-rich protein Protein, ON Protein, Osteonectin Protein
SPARC (secreted protein acidic and rich in cysteine)/Osteonectin is a matricellular glycoprotein that modulates cellular interactions with the ECM and is expressed in tissues undergoing remodeling. It functions as a de-adhesive protein, as a modulator of growth factor activity, and as a cell-cycle inhibitor. It induces changes in endothelial cell shape via F-actin, coincident with the appearance of intercellular gaps, that provide a paracellular pathway for extravasation of macromolecules.
