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".
Determined by its ability to induce NF-kappaB in RAW264.7 cells in the absence of any cross-linking. The expected ED50 for this effect is 10.0-25.0 ng/ml.
Less than 0.1 ng/µg of protein (less than 1EU/µg).
Sterile filtered, lyophilized from 5 mM Tris, pH 7.6, 75 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.
TNFSF11 / RANKL / TRANCE is a member of the tumor necrosis factor (TNF) cytokine family which is a ligand for osteoprotegerin and functions as a key factor for osteoclast differentiation and activation. This protein was shown to be a dentritic cell survival factor and is involved in the regulation of T cell-dependent immune response. T cell activation was reported to induce expression of this gene and lead to an increase of osteoclastogenesis and bone loss.
