Applications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab237948 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
Protein Array Use a concentration of 0.5 - 1 µg/ml.

Staining of formalin-fixed tissues is enhanced by boiling tissue sections in 10mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0, for 10-20 min followed by cooling at RT for 20 minutes. Incubate with primary antibody for 30 mins at RT.

IHC-P Use at an assay dependent concentration.

Target

  • 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
    modifications

    N- and O-glycosylated.
  • Cellular localization

    Cell membrane and Endosome membrane. Lysosome membrane.

Images

  • Formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded human tonsil tissue stained for CD68 with ab238094 at 1 µg/ml in immunohistochemical analysis.

    This data was produced with ab238094, the same antibody in a different formulation with BSA and Azide.

  • This data was produced with ab238094, the same antibody in a different formulation with BSA and Azide.
    ab238094 was tested in protein array against over 19000 different full-length human proteins.
    Z- and S- Score: The Z-score represents the strength of a signal that a monoclonal antibody (MAb) (in combination with a fluorescently-tagged anti-IgG secondary antibody) produces when binding to a particular protein on the HuProtTM array. Z-scores are described in units of standard deviations (SD's) above the mean value of all signals generated on that array. If targets on HuProtTM are arranged in descending order of the Z-score, the S-score is the difference (also in units of SD's) between the Z-score. S-score therefore represents the relative target specificity of a MAb to its intended target.
    A MAb is specific to its intended target if the MAb has an S-score of at least 2.5. For example, if a MAb binds to protein X with a Z-score of 43 and to protein Y with a Z-score of 14, then the S-score for the binding of that MAb to protein X is equal to 29.
