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".
SPARC (secreted protein acidic and rich in cysteine)/Osteonectin is a matricellular glycoprotein that modulates cellular interactions with the ECM and is expressed in tissues undergoing remodeling. It functions as a de-adhesive protein, as a modulator of growth factor activity, and as a cell-cycle inhibitor. It induces changes in endothelial cell shape via F-actin, coincident with the appearance of intercellular gaps, that provide a paracellular pathway for extravasation of macromolecules. Tumor growth is enhanced in mice lacking SPARC due to changes in the ECM that create a more permissive environment for tumor progression.
