BALB/c macrophages obtained from 14-day-old bone marrow cell cultures.
This antibody is the only macrophage marker that is able to distinguish non-destructive from destructive inflammation processes in the pancreas. It is a unique histological marker of the progression from peri-insulitis to beta-cell destruction and diabetes in a mouse diabetes model.
Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab60343 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|IHC-Fr||Use at an assay dependent concentration. PubMed: 19587144|
|Flow Cyt||1/50 - 1/100.
ab18446 - Rat monoclonal IgG2a, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.

ICC/IF image of ab60343 stained MEF cells. The cells were 4% PFA fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab60343, 1µg/ml, FITC conjugated) overnight at +4°C. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.
