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".
CASR, a Calcium-Sensing Receptor, functions as a sensor in parathyroid and kidney to determine extracellular calcium concentration and to maintain calcium homeostasis. This receptor regulates both secretion of parathyroid hormone and excretion of urinary calcium. Mutations that inactivate CASR cause familial hypocalciuric hypercalcemia, which is also correlated with hyperparathyroidism. On the other hand, mutations that activate CASR cause autosomal dominant hypocalcemia. Hjalm et al. (2001) and Awata et al. (2001) have identified the binding of filamin-1 to the C-terminal tail of CASR, which may contribute to its localization in caveolae, link it to the actin-based cytoskeleton, and participate in CASR-mediated activation of MAPK. Multiple isoforms for CASR are produced by alternative splicing.
