Datasheet Extract

Swiss Prot Num:
Purified Concanavalin A acceptor glycoprotein from P815 cell line.
Application Western Blot: Non-reducing conditions recommended.
Flow Cytometry:
Use 10 µl of 1/50-1/100 diluted antibody to label 10cells in 100 µl (Membrane permeabilization is required). 
Clone FA-11 can be used in Flow Cytometry to detect intracellular CD68, following permeabilization, and can detect surface macrosialin at low levels in resident Mouse peritoneal macrophages which can be enhanced with thioglycollate stimulation.
Immunohistochemistry on Frozen Sections.
Immunohistochemistry on Paraffin Sections: 2 µg/ml.
Heat induced antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer, pH 6.2 using a pressure cooker was preformed. Sections were blocking using a commercially available casein solution. Signal was generated using a commercially available polymer HRP detection system and DAB.
Tris/EDTA buffer may also be used for this purpose.
Staining has also been achieved without antigen retrieval, See Lu et al. for details.
Rat anti Mouse CD68 antibody, Clone FA-11, has been used in many mouse models for the identification of CD68 in immunohistochemical studies, using both frozen and paraffin-embedded tissues, See Masaki, T. et al. and Devey, L. et al. as examples.
Background CD68 is considered a pan macrophage marker, predominantly expressed on the intracellular lysosomes of tissue macrophages/monocytes, including Kupffer cells, microglia, histiocytes and osteoclasts, and is expressed to a lesser extent by dendritic cells and peripheral blood granulocytes.
CD68 is expressed by many tumor types including some B cell lymphomas, blastic NK lymphomas, melanomas, granulocytic (myeloid) sarcomas, hairy cell leukemias, and renal, urinary and pancreatic tumors, and can be used in cancer studies to demonstrate the presence/localization of macrophages.
Concentration 1.0 mg/ml
