Overview

  • Product nameAnti-F4/80 antibody [BM8]
    See all F4/80 primary antibodies
  • Description
    Rat monoclonal [BM8] to F4/80
  • SpecificityThe monoclonal antibody BM8 recognizes a 125 kDa extracellular macrophage membrane molecule, highly restricted to mature macrophage subpopulations residing in tissue. This antibody does not cross react with any of the following cell types from Mouse: granulocytes, mast cells, platelets, lymphocytes, fibroblasts or endothelial cells. Although several publications have used this antibody succesfully in human, we have been unable to obtain positive results in this species and so do not guarantee it.

Anti-F4/80 antibody [BM8] images

  • ab16911 stained RAW246.7 cells. The cells were 100% methanol fixed for 5 minutes at -20°C and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1hour at room temperature to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab16911 at 1in50 dilution) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (pseudo-colored green) was Goat Anti-Rat IgG H&L (Alexa Fluor® 488) preadsorbed (ab150165) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1hour at room temperature. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (pseudo-colored red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1hour at room temperature. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (pseudo-colored blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM for 1hour at room temperature.

  • ab16911 staining mouse spleen tissue sections by immunohistochemistry (frozen sections). Sections were paraformaldehyde fixed without permeabilization and blocked in 1% serum for 10 minutes at 20°C. The primary antibody was used undiluted and incubated with sample for 16 hour at 20°C. A Biotin conjugated goat polyclonal to rat Ig, diluted 1/500 was used as the secondary antibody.

  • ab16911 staining F4/80 in Mouse brain cells by ICC/IF (Immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescence). Cells were fixed with acetone and blocked with 5% BSA for 1 hour at 20°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/250) for 16 hours at 4°C. An Alexa Fluor®568-conjugated Goat anti-rat IgG polyclonal (1/1000) was used as the secondary antibody.

  • Overlay histogram showing HeLa cells stained with ab16911 (red line). The cells were fixed with methanol (5 min) and incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab16911, 1/10 dilution) for 30 min at 22°C. The secondary antibody used was DyLight® 488 goat anti-rat IgG (Fc) (ab96971) at 1/250 dilution for 30 min at 22°C. Isotype control antibody (black line) was rat IgG2a [aRTK2758] (ab18450, 2µg/1x106 cells cells) used under the same conditions. Acquisition of >5,000 events was performed. This antibody gave a significantly decreased signal in HeLa cells fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde (10 min) used under the same conditions.

    Please note that Abcam does not have data for use of this antibody on non-fixed cells. We welcome any customer feedback.

Clone CI:A3-1 was the original F4/80 clone, and BM8 was created later. The primary difference between the two clones is that while CI:A3-1 will detect F4/80 on microglia, BM8 will not.

F4/80 expression is known to vary during macrophage matu...

Thank you for contacting us. Only non-reduced reduced samples should be used to detect F4/80. If you have further questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

I regret to inform you we have no information about the epitope recognized by the antibody. So we do not know if the antibody recognizes a surface or intracellular epitope of the immunogen. The peptide is not available unfortunately. I'm sorry I ...
