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".
Glycogen debranching enzyme is involved in glycogen degradation and has two independent catalytic activities: a 4-alpha-glucotransferase activity (EC 220.127.116.11) and a amylo-1,6-glucosidase activity (EC 18.104.22.168). Both activities occur at different sites on the single polypeptide chain. Mutations in this gene cause glycogen storage disease. A wide range of clinical and enzymatic variability occurs in glycogen debrancher deficiency, some of which may be due to tissue-specific alternative splicing. Six splice variants that differ in the 5' end have been identified in liver and muscle tissue. Variants 1, 5, and 6 are present in both liver and muscle, whereas variants 2, 3, and 4 occur in muscle. Variants 1 through 4 encode identical proteins (isoform 1) that include 27 N-terminal amino acids not found in splice variants 5 and 6. Variants 5 and 6 encode different amino-terminal ends of 10 and 11 amino acids in protein isoforms 2 and 3, respectively, with the remainder of the peptide identical to that of isoforms 1.
