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".
The extracellular domain of mouse CD152 [CTLA-4] (aa 1-160) is fused to the N-terminus of the Fc region of a mutant mouse IgG2a.
Mouse mutant IgG2a Fc
Greater than 98% by SDS-PAGE
Blocks the binding of mouse CD80 (B7-1) and CD86 (B7-2) to their receptors (by binding CD80 and CD86 with high affinity) and thereby prevents their T cell regulatory actions by inhibiting the CD28 signaling competitively. Shows the biological functions of the CD152 moiety and exerts a prolonged circulating half-life caused by the modified Fc domain. Useful for investigating the T cell co-stimulation.
Less than 0.06 EU/µg protein (determined by LAL method).
Lyophilized from PBS.
Store lyophilized at -20°C for at least 1 year. Once reconstituted store at +4°C for immediate use, or aliquot and store at -20°C for up to 3 months. Avoid repeat freeze-thaw cycles.
CTLA4 / CD152 is a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily and encodes a protein which transmits an inhibitory signal to T cells. The protein contains a V domain, a transmembrane domain, and a cytoplasmic tail. Alternate transcriptional splice variants, encoding different isoforms, have been characterized. The membrane-bound isoform functions as a homodimer interconnected by a disulfide bond, while the soluble isoform functions as a monomer.
