Histology Positive ControlLiver tissue.
Background CD163 is a scavenger receptor for the haemoglobin-haptoglobin complex, and is upregulated by glucocorticoids and IL-10. The extracellular portion of the receptor is regularly shed and can be found in the circulation. An important function of CD163 seems to be in the adhesion of monocytes to activated endothelial cells.
CD163 is expressed by approximately 50% of peritoneal macrophages, a subset of splenic macrophages, and by macrophages in most other tissues. However, it is not expressed by monocytes, alveolar macrophages or microglial cells.

Species Reactivity
Species reactivity (tested):
This antibody recognises the Rat CD163 cell surface glycoprotein, a 175kD molecule also known as ED2. 
It does not react with Human.
Mouse anti Rat CD163, clone ED2 was shown to detect approximately 50% of peritoneal macrophages, a subset of splenic macrophages, and most tissue macrophages. However, no staining was observed in monocytes or alveolar macrophages (Dijkstra et al. 1985, Beelen et al. 1987). In freshly isolated bone marrow, expression of CD163 was limited to mature macrophages only (Barbe et al. 1990).
