IHC-Fr Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml.
IHC-FoFr Use at an assay dependent concentration.

Target

  • Function
    Could play a role in phagocytic activities of tissue macrophages, both in intracellular lysosomal metabolism and extracellular cell-cell and cell-pathogen interactions. Binds to tissue- and organ-specific lectins or selectins, allowing homing of macrophage subsets to particular sites. Rapid recirculation of CD68 from endosomes and lysosomes to the plasma membrane may allow macrophages to crawl over selectin-bearing substrates or other cells.
  • Tissue specificity
    Highly expressed by blood monocytes and tissue macrophages. Also expressed in lymphocytes, fibroblasts and endothelial cells. Expressed in many tumor cell lines which could allow them to attach to selectins on vascular endothelium, facilitating their dissemination to secondary sites.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the LAMP family.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    N- and O-glycosylated.
  • Cellular localization
    Cell membrane and Endosome membrane. Lysosome membrane.

    Western blot analysis of rat and mouse tissue lysates, labelling CD68 with ab125212

  • Immunohistochemical analysis of murine spleen tissue, staining CD68 with ab125212.

    Tissue was fixed with paraformaldehyde and blocked with 5% serum for 1 hour at room temperature; antigen retrieval was by heat mediation in citrate buffer (pH 6). Samples were incubated with primary antibody (undiluted) for 16 hours at 4°C. An undiluted HRP-conjugated horse anti-rat polyclonal IgG was used as the secondary antibody.

Tissue was fixed with paraformaldehyde and blocked with 5% serum for 30 minutes at 20°C; antigen retrieval was by heat mediation in a citrate buffer. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/100 in PBS + 2% BSA + 10% FCS) for 45 minutes at 20°C. A HRP-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG polyclonal (1/200) was used as the secondary antibody.
