Background of CD68/SR-D1

CD68 is a heavily glycosylated glycoprotein that is highly expressed in macrophages and other mononuclear phagocytes. Macrosialin, if not glycosylated, has the main sequence that consists of 354 amino acids with an expected molecular weight of 37.4 kD. CD68, which can be located in the cytoplasmic granules of a variety of blood cells and myocytes, can be detected via immunohistochemistry. It's particularly effective as a marker for monocytes, histiocytes, giant cells, Kupffer cells, and osteoclasts, all of which belong to the macrophage lineage. CD68 is expressed in tissue macrophages and to a lesser extent in dendritic cells. CD68 is involved in tissue macrophage phagocytic activities, as well as intracellular lysosomal metabolism and extracellular cell-cell and cell-pathogen interactions. It works by binding to tissue and organ-specific lectins or selectins, enabling macrophage subsets to be directed to specific locations. Macrophages may be able to crawl over selectin-bearing substrates or other cells if CD68 is rapidly recirculated from endosomes and lysosomes to the plasma membrane.

Our lab used your anti-CD68 antibody for WB on spleen umbilical cord blood in the past. I am using mouse, and I plan to use the antibody for IF next. My lab would like examining spleen umbilical cord blood as well as adipose tissue in our next experiment. Do you have any suggestion on which antibody would work the best for IF?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2018-05-18


I looked at the website and datasheets of our anti-CD68 antibody and it seems that PA1518 has been validated on mouse in both WB and IF. Thus PA1518 should work for your application. Our Boster satisfaction guarantee will cover this product for IF in mouse even if the specific tissue type has not been validated. We do have a comprehensive range of products for IF detection and you can check out our website to find out more information about them.

We are currently using anti-CD68 antibody PA1518 for rat tissue, and we are satisfied with the IHC-F results. The species of reactivity given in the datasheet says mouse, rat. Is it possible that the antibody can work on zebrafish tissues as well?

K. Carter

Verified customer

Asked: 2016-01-08


The anti-CD68 antibody (PA1518) has not been validated for cross reactivity specifically with zebrafish tissues, but there is a good chance of cross reactivity. We have an innovator award program that if you test this antibody and show it works in zebrafish you can get your next antibody for free. Please contact me if I can help you with anything.
