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).
SERPINE1 / PAI-1
Greater than 95% by SDS-PAGE and HPLC
Determined by its inhibitory effect against single chain tPA induced cleavage of a chromogenic substrate in Imidazole Buffer at 37¦C. Half maximal inhibition against 1.0 ug/ml of single chain tPA was obtained at a concentration of 2.0 ug/ml.
Less than 0.1 ng/µg of protein (less than 1EU/µg).
Sterile filtered, lyophilized from 50 mM sodium acetate, pH 5.5, 100 mM sodium chloride
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.
SERPINE1 / PAI-1 is a member of the serine proteinase inhibitor (serpin) superfamily. This member is the principal inhibitor of tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) and urokinase (uPA), and hence is an inhibitor of fibrinolysis. Defects in this gene are the cause of plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 deficiency (PAI-1 deficiency), and high concentrations of the gene product are associated with thrombophilia.
