|Purification||Purified IgG prepared by affinity chromatography on Protein A from tissue culture supernatant|
|Immunogen||Rat spleen cells|
|Shelf Life||18 months from date of despatch.|
|Target/Specificity||Mouse anti rat CD68, clone ED1 recognizes the rat ED1 antigen, a heavily glycosylated protein of 90-110 KDa, also known as rat CD68 (Dijkstraet al.1985).The ED1 antigen is expressed on most macrophages populations, as well as on monocytes and is considered as a pan-macrophage marker in the rat (Damoiseauxet al.1994). ED1 is expressed predominantly on the lysosomal membrane and lightly on the cell surface (Dijkstraet al.1985).The expression of ED1 antigen being predominantly cytoplasmic (Dijkstraet al.1985), flow cytometry results are improved by the use of a membrane permeabilization procedure, such as Leucoperm, prior to staining.|
