Basophils are multifunctional haematopoietic cells that secrete a wide variety of proinflammatory agents upon activation such as histamine and cytokines. Moreover, basophils can induce IgE production by B cells. Under normal conditions basophils are primarily produced in the bone marrow, whereas mature basophils reside in the circulation and can enter tissues at sites of inflammation. Both basophils and mast cells have been implicated in the pathogenesis of allergic inflammation due to the abundant expression of high affinity receptors for IgE. The 2D7 antibody can be used as a sensitive and precise marker for human basophils and does not react with lymphocytes, monocytes, eosinophils, neutrophils or mast cells in immunohistochemistry. Moreover, the antibody is suitable for western blot analysis of the 2D7 antigen.

ab155577 staining Basophils in human bone marrow tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P - paraformaldehyde-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue was fixed with paraformaldehyde and blocked with 4% serum for 30 minutes at 25°C; antigen retrieval was by heat mediation in citrate buffer pH 6.0. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/50 in blocking buffer) for 16 hours at 22°C. A Biotin-conjugated goat anti-mouse IgG polyclonal (10µg/ml) was used as the secondary antibody.
