  • 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

    N- and O-glycosylated.
  • Cellular localization

    Cell membrane and Endosome membrane. Lysosome membrane.

Thank you for your inquiry.

I agree with your customer that there is not much difference with both antibodies and that we do not have any customer feedback for them yet.

I can confirm that both are covered by our guarantee for IHC-P and human samples. I would suggest to use a positive control with the brain samples. For example human tonsil.

Please also suggest to your customer to write an Abreview. This will be valuable information for other researchers and your customer could earn Abpoints that can be redeemed as discount on future purchases or Amazon vouchers.

I am sorry I do have more information for you and hope this is nevertheless helpful.
