Monoclonal Rat Affinity Purified B IH FC
The F4/80 glycoprotein contains seven-transmembrane (TM7) regions, which anchor the protein in the cell membrane, and thereby shows similarity in this region to G-protein-coupled receptors. The F8/40 molecule shares overall structural homology to other members of the epidermal growth factor (EGF)-TM7 family. The antigen is detected on tissue fixed macrophages in all organs tested so far (spleen, lymph nodes, thymus, liver, skin). It is also present on Langerhans cells in the skin and Kupffer cells in the liver. It is absent on granulocytes, lymphocytes and trombocytes. The expression of F4/80 increases upon maturation of macrophage precursors in bone marrow and blood as well as in ontogeny. The antibody is the only macrophage marker that is able to distinguish non-destructive from destructive inflammation processes in the pancreas. Furthermore it is a unique histological marker of the progression from peri-insulitis to beta-cell destruction and diabetes in a mouse diabetes model.
Applications:
Suitable for use in Western Blot, Flow Cytometry and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications have not been tested.
Catalog #F0001-51
Recommended DilutionsWestern Blot: 1:50 detects F4/80 in mouse bone marrow derived macrophages under non-reduced conditions. Reduction with 2-mercaptoethanol destroys BM8 antigen.
Flow Cytometry: 1:50. Fix with 1% paraformaldehyde.
Immunohistochemistry (Frozen): 1:50. Tissue embedded in OCT Tissue Tec, fixed with acetone for 10 minutes at RT. Incubate with PBS, 0.02M sodium azide, 0.1% H2O2 for 10 minutes at RT to destroy endogenous peroxidase. Spleen used as a positive control.
Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin): 1:50. Fixation in 10% neutral buffered formalin for 24hrs. Blocked with non-immunized goat serum. Microwaved for 6 minutes in citrate buffer. Splenic macrophages used as a positive control.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
Storage and StabilityMay be stored at 4°C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20°C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
