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

Application Abreviews Notes
Flow Cyt Use a concentration of 0.5 µg/ml.

Blocking Use a concentration of 2 µg/ml. (or 1/500).Note: ab23680 inhibits CD36 binding of ox-LDL (macrophages) and rod puter segments (retinal pigment epithelial cells) and prevents foam cell formation of macrophages.
ICC/IF Use at an assay dependent concentration. PubMed: 22205027


  • Function
    Multifunctional glycoprotein that acts as receptor for a broad range of ligands. Ligands can be of proteinaceous nature like thrombospondin, fibronectin, collagen or amyloid-beta as well as of lipidic nature such as oxidized low-density lipoprotein (oxLDL), anionic phospholipids, long-chain fatty acids and bacterial diacylated lipopeptides. They are generally multivalent and can therefore engage multiple receptors simultaneously, the resulting formation of CD36 clusters initiates signal transduction and internalization of receptor-ligand complexes. The dependency on coreceptor signaling is strongly ligand specific. Cellular responses to these ligands are involved in angiogenesis, inflammatory response, fatty acid metabolism, taste and dietary fat processing in the intestine (Probable). Binds long-chain fatty acids and facilitates their transport into cells, thus participating in muscle lipid utilization, adipose energy storage, and gut fat absorption (By similarity) (PubMed:18353783, PubMed:21610069). In the small intestine, plays a role in proximal absorption of dietary fatty acid and cholesterol for optimal chylomicron formation, possibly through the activation of MAPK1/3 (ERK1/2) signaling pathway (By similarity) (PubMed:18753675). Involved in oral fat perception and preferences (PubMed:22240721, PubMed:25822988). Detection into the tongue of long-chain fatty acids leads to a rapid and sustained rise in flux and protein content of pancreatobiliary secretions (By similarity). In taste receptor cells, mediates the induction of an increase in intracellulare calcium levels by long-chain fatty acids, leading to the activation of the gustatory neurons in the nucleus of the solitary tract (By similarity). Important factor in both ventromedial hypothalamus neuronal sensing of long-chain fatty acid and the regulation of energy and glucose homeostasis (By similarity). Receptor for thombospondins, THBS1 and THBS2, mediating their antiangiogenic effects (By similarity). As a coreceptor for TLR4:TLR6 heterodimer, promotes inflammation in monocytes/macrophages. Upon ligand binding, such as oxLDL or amyloid-beta 42, interacts with the heterodimer TLR4:TLR6, the complex is internalized and triggers inflammatory response, leading to NF-kappa-B-dependent production of CXCL1, CXCL2 and CCL9 cytokines, via MYD88 signaling pathway, and CCL5 cytokine, via TICAM1 signaling pathway, as well as IL1B secretion, through the priming and activation of the NLRP3 inflammasome (By similarity) (PubMed:20037584). Selective and nonredundant sensor of microbial diacylated lipopeptide that signal via TLR2:TLR6 heterodimer, this cluster triggers signaling from the cell surface, leading to the NF-kappa-B-dependent production of TNF, via MYD88 signaling pathway and subsequently is targeted to the Golgi in a lipid-raft dependent pathway (By similarity) (PubMed:16880211).
    (Microbial infection) Directly mediates cytoadherence of Plasmodium falciparum parasitized erythrocytes and the internalization of particles independently of TLR signaling.
  • Involvement in disease
    Platelet glycoprotein IV deficiency
    Coronary heart disease 7
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the CD36 family.
  • Post-translational
    N-glycosylated and O-glycosylated with a ratio of 2:1.
    Ubiquitinated at Lys-469 and Lys-472. Ubiquitination is induced by fatty acids such as oleic acid and leads to degradation by the proteasome (PubMed:21610069, PubMed:18353783). Ubiquitination and degradation are inhibited by insulin which blocks the effect of fatty acids (PubMed:18353783).
  • Cellular localization
    Cell membrane. Membrane raft. Golgi apparatus. Apical cell membrane. Upon ligand-binding, internalized through dynamin-dependent endocytosis.

Thank you for your inquiry.

The lab said that the suggested concentration is 2 ug/ml but that the incubation times will need to be determined by the individual investigator depending on the biomarkers they are measuring.

I performed a literature search and I have copied links to publications that have used this antibody for in vitro experiments. We would suggest you perform a further literature search to find publications for your experimental model.

I apologize that this information could not be more helpful, but I hope this is a good starting point for you. Please contact us with any other questions.

Thank you for your inquiry To our knowledge, the epitope has not been mapped. I quickly searched the literature for this clone, but was unable to find any information about epitope mapping of this clone. The immunogen for this antibody was the full length protein. Because the antibody does block the activity of the receptor, it can safely be assumed that the epitope is extracellular. I hope this information is helpful. Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions.

Thank you for your enquiry. Below is the list of publications using this antibody I promised you. The publications probably will not mention Abcam by name, since they were written before we started carrying the antibody. Unfortunately as I mentioned on the phone, I don't have access to all of the journals to see which publications would be helpful to you. I apologize for that! Greenwalt et al. Blood 90(5), 1105-1115 (1992). Pearce et al. Circ. Res. 90, 844-849 (2002). Febbraio et al. J. Biol. Chem. 274, 19055-19062 (1999). Podrez et al. J. Clin. Invest. 105(8), 1095-1108 (2000). Febbraio et al. J. Clin. Invest. 105(8), 1049-1056 (2000). Febbraio et al. J. Clin. Invest. 108(6), 785-791 (2001). Han et al. J. Biol. Chem. 272(34), 21654-21659 (1997). Tontonoz et al.
