Anti-Mouse CD68 Antibody, clone FA-11

Rat Anti-Mouse Monoclonal Antibody

  • IHC - Anti-Mouse CD68 Antibody, clone FA-11  ABD12354
    Published customer image:Rat anti Mouse CD68 antibody, clone FA-11 used for the detection of infiltrating macrophages in mouse kidney by immunohistochemistry on paraffin embedded material.Image caption:Reduction in cellular infiltration and inflammatory markers in UUO kidneys exposed to telmisartan or PXS64. Untreated UUO kidneys showed increased F4/80, CD68 and CD45 positively stained cells as compared to the sham operated control animals. PXS64 significantly reduced F4/80 and CD45 positive stained cells (Fig. 6C and E) with a trend to a reduction in CD68 cells, although this was not statistically significant (Fig. 6D). Telmisartan treated kidneys showed a reduction in F4/80 positive cells but no difference in CD45 or CD68 stained cells, suggesting a differential action of PXS64 and telmisartan in modifying cellular infiltration. Results are presented as mean showed (n = 8, *P < 0.05 vs. UUO, ** P < 0.01 vs. UUO). Magnification x 400.From: Zhang J, Wong MG, Wong M, Gross S, Chen J, et al. A Cationic-Independent Mannose 6-Phosphate Receptor Inhibitor Ameliorates Kidney Fibrosis by Inhibiting Activation of Transforming Growth Factor-β1. PLoS ONE 10: e0116888.

Phenotypic changes after intracerebral injection of 100 pg of LPS in naïve mice (A, B, E, F, I, J, M, N) or mice pretreated with SL3261 (C, D, G, H, K, L, O, P). Representative images of immune marker expression (CD11c (A-D), CD68 (E-H), MHCII (I-L) in the injected hemisphere (B, D, F, H, J, L, N, P) or contralateral site are shown.

  • IHC-P - Anti-Mouse CD68 Antibody, clone FA-11  ABD12354
    Published customer image:Mouse anti CD68 antibody, clone FA-11 used for the detection of macrophages in mouse lung and liver by immunohistochemistry on formalin fixed, paraffin embedded tissues.Image caption: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 . The macrophages were indicated by anti-CD68 immunostaining . Images were captured by Zeiss microscope with Spot Advance software. Scale bar was 40 μm for all images. (B) The distribution and density of macrophages in 9V/null/GCStg lung and liver immunostained by anti-CD68 antibody . Scale bar was 40 μm 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&#39s t-test.From: Barnes S, Xu Y-H, Zhang W, Liou B, Setchell KDR, et al.

Target/Specificity Rat anti-mouse CD68 antibody, clone FA-11 recognizes mouse macrosialin, a heavily glycosylated transmembrane protein and murine homolog of human CD68, which is classified as a unique scavenger receptor (ScR) family member, due to the presence of a lysosome associated membrane protein (LAMP)-like domain.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.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 (Masakiet al.2003) and Deveyet al.2009).Rat anti-mouse CD68 antibody, 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.
