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".
Tobacco Etch Virus Protease is a highly site-specific cysteine protease that is found in the Tobacco Etch Virus (TEV). The optimum recognition site for this enzyme is the sequence Glu-Asn-Leu-Tyr-Phe-Gln-(Gly/Ser) and cleavage occurs between the Gln and Gly/Ser residues, The most commonly used sequence is ENLYFQG. The protease is used to cleave affinity tags from fusion proteins. The optimal temperature for cleavage is 30°C; also it can be used at temperature as low as 4°C. It is recommended that the cleavage for each fusion protein be optimized by varying the amount of recombinant viral TEV protease, reaction time, or incubation temperature. It can be removed by Ni2+ affinity resin. Recombinant Tobacco Etch Virus Protease (rTEV) contains 231 amino acids with N-terminal His tagged. A fully biologically active molecule, rTEV has a molecular mass of 28.4 kDa and is obtained by chromatographic techniques.
