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".
Purified / Lyophilized / Endotoxin Level: Less than 1.0 EU/µg protein (determined by LAL method).
RETN / Resistin
Greater than 98% by SDS-PAGE and HPLC
Determined by its ability to stimulate lipolysis in cultured human adipocytes. (Ort, T. et al. Endocrinology; 46(5):2200-9)
Less than 0.1 ng/µg of protein (less than 1EU/µg).
Sterile filtered, lyophilized from 10 mM sodium citrate, pH 3.0
Centrifuge the vial prior to opening. Reconstitute in water to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/ml. Do not vortex. For extended storage it is recommended to further dilute in a buffer containing a carrier protein (example 0.1% BSA) and store in working aliquots at -20°C to -80°C.
If lyophilized, can be stored for 1 month at room temperature, 6 months at 4°C, or through the expiration date at -20°C to -80°C. Once reconstituted per the supplied instructions, can be stored for 3 months at -20°C to -80°C, or for 1 week at 2°C to 8°C. Avoid repeat freeze-thaw cycles.

RETN / Resistin belongs to the family defined by the mouse resistin-like genes. The characteristic feature of this family is the C-terminal stretch of 10 cys residues with identical spacing. The mouse homolog of this protein is secreted by adipocytes, and may be the hormone potentially linking obesity to type II diabetes. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding the same protein have been found for this gene.
