Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab15635 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
IHC-Fr Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml.

Permeabilisation with 0.01% Triton is recommended

Flow Cyt Use 1µg for 106 cells. ab18450-Rat monoclonal IgG2a, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.


  • RelevanceThe antigen is found on the surface of connective tissue macrophages and their precursor cells in bone marrow. Macrophage cell lines (J774-1.6, RAW309Cr.1, WR19M.1) corresponding to mature macrophages express high levels of the antigen .

  • Overlay histogram showing RAW 264.7 cells stained with ab15635 (red line). The cells were fixed with 80% 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 (ab15635, 1µg/1x106 cells) for 30 min at 22ºC. The secondary antibody used was DyLight® 488 goat anti-rat IgG (H+L) (ab98386) at 1/500 dilution for 30 min at 22ºC. Isotype control antibody (black line) was rat IgG2a, kappa monoclonal [aRTK2758] (ab18450, 2µg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Acquisition of >5,000 events was performed. This antibody gave a positive signal in RAW 264.7 cells fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde used under the same conditions.
    Please note that Abcam do not have any data for use of this antibody on non-fixed cells. We welcome any customer feedback.
