anti-CD68 antibody product blogThe CD68 cd68 (Catalog #MBS215406) is an Antibody produced from Rat and is intended for research purposes only. The product is available for immediate purchase. MyBioSource\'s CD68 can be used in a range of immunoassay formats including, but not limited to, Flow cytometry (FC/FACS)*.
Flow Cytometry: Use 10ul of the suggested working dilution to label 106 cells in 100ul.
Flow Cytometry: Maximum Dilution: Neat; Application Note: Membrane permeabilisation is required for this application. MyBioSource recommends the use of Leucoperm for this purpose.
The Fc region of monoclonal antibodies may bind non-specifically to cells expressing low affinity Fc receptors. This may be reduced by using SeroBlock FcR. Researchers should empirically determine the suitability of the CD68 cd68 for an application not listed in the data sheet. Researchers commonly develop new applications and it is an integral, important part of the investigative research process.
The CD68 cd68 product has the following accession number(s) (GI #6753352) (NCBI Accession #NP_033983.1). Researchers may be interested in using Bioinformatics databases such as those available at The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) website for more information about accession numbers and the proteins they represent. Even researchers unfamiliar with bioinformatics databases will find the NCBI databases to be quite user friendly and useful.

Testing Data (Published customer image: Phenotype of pancreatic macrophages. (A) Identification of macrophage subsets in pancreas of CX3CR1GFP/+ C56BL/6 mice. Pancreatic single cell suspensions were gated on FSC-A vs FSC-W and CD45+. Histograms show receptor expression profile of CX3CR1hiLYVE-1- (green line) and CX3CR1loLYVE-1+ (red line) macrophages. (B) Sorted CX3CR1loLYVE-1+ and CX3CR1hiLYVE-1- macrophages spun onto glass slides and stained with Wright\'s stain. 1000x magnification. (C) mRNA expression profile of chemokine receptors, chemokines and VEGFs in pancreatic macrophage subsets. mRNA levels examined by qRT-PCR in duplicate or triplicate. 6 -7 mice/group, data representative of 2 -4 separate experiments.From: Yin N, Zhang N, Lal G, Xu J, Yan M, et al.

Testing Data (Published customer image: Histology in 9V/9V/GCStg and 9V/null/GCStg mice. (A) The lung and liver sections from 9-wk old 9V/9V (row 1), 9V/9V/GCStg (row 2), 9V/null (row 3) and 9V/null/GCStg (row 4) were processed for H&E and CD68 antibody staining as indicated. Large and pale storage cells were observed in H&E stained lung and liver sections (arrows). The macrophages were indicated by anti-CD68 immunostaining (brown). Images were captured by Zeiss microscope with Spot Advance software. Scale bar was 40 um for all images. (B) The distribution and density of macrophages in 9V/null/GCStg lung and liver immunostained by anti-CD68 antibody (brown). Scale bar was 40 um for both images. (C) CD68 positive cells (CD68+) in 9V/9V/GCStg and 9V/null/GCStg lungs had significantly more CD68 stained macrophages than 9V/9V and 9V/null at 9 wks of age, respectively. The data present number of cells per image of total 5-15 images/mouse, 3 mice per genotype. Results with error bars are mean +/-S.E. The p values were from Student\'s t-test.From: Barnes S, Xu Y-H, Zhang W, Liou B, Setchell KDR, et al.

Testing Data (Published customer image: Impact of SOCS-1 deficiency on atherosclerotic plaque composition A. Atherosclerotic plaques from Socs-1-/- triple-KO (Socs-1-/-) mice showed an increased CD68 (red);iNOS (green) double-positive cell content. B. CD68 (red); CD206 (green) double-positive cells were hardly detected. C. Atherosclerotic plaques from Socs-1-/-triple-KO (Socs-1-/-) mice contained slightly more MOMA-2 (red); Ly-6C (green) double-positive cells after 4 weeks of HCD as well as D. a higher number of Ly-6G positive cells (scale bar A -C: 20 um, scale bar D:50 um).

Testing Data (Published customer image: Leukocyte infiltration in COX-2-M/-M and COX-2+/+ mice. MPO enzymatic activity (panel A) was statistically similar in COX-2-M/-M and COX-2+/+ livers at 6 h and 24 h post-IRI. Ly-6G+ neutrophil (panel B) and granulocyte (panel C) infiltration were also comparable in COX-2-M/-M and COX-2+/+ livers after IRI. Mac-1+ (panel D) and CD68 (panel E) infiltrating macrophages were significantly reduced in COX-2-M/-M livers at 24 h post-reperfusion, but were statistically indistinguishable in COX-2-M/-M and COX-2+/+ livers at 6 h after IRI. No statistical differences in MMP-9 expression (panel F) could be demonstrated in livers of COX-2-M/-M and COX-2+/+ mice post-IRI. Representative immunostaining (panel G) of infiltrating Ly-6G+ (a,b,e,f) and Mac-1+ (c,d,g,h) leukocytes in livers of COX-2+/+ (a,c,e,g) and COX-2-M/-M (b,d,f,h) mice at 6 h (a to d) and 24 h (e to h) post IRI; (n = 5 -6/group; * indicates p)
