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".
Recombinant Prelamin-A is a 74kDa precursor of the nuclear lamin A protein. Prelamin-A is a structural component of the nuclear lamina and it is encoded by lamin A/C gene (LMNA). Due to the presence of a CAAX box sequence at carboxyl terminus, Prelamin-A in vivo goes through a serial of post-translational modifications, resulting in the farnesylation of the cysteine thiol, removal of the AAX tripeptide, carboxyl-methylation of the cysteinyl carboxy group and proteolysis of 18 C-terminal amino acids residues that lead to mature lamin A. Diverse mutations in the lamin A/C gene are associated with different deseases that are collectively called laminophaties, including Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy, familial partial lipodystrophy, limb girdle muscular dystrophy, dilated cardiomyopathy, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, and Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome. Recombinant human prelamin A is fused to a 6 Histidine tag at the N-terminus.

The nuclear lamina consists of a two-dimensional matrix of proteins located next to the inner nuclear membrane. The lamin family of proteins make up the matrix and are highly conserved in evolution. During mitosis, the lamina matrix is reversibly disassembled as the lamin proteins are phosphorylated. Lamin proteins are thought to be involved in nuclear stability, chromatin structure and gene expression. Vertebrate lamins consist of two types, A and B.
