Clone Host Grade Applications
Monoclonal Mouse Supernatant IH
Macrophages and histiocytes, which are widely distributed throughout the body, play a crucial role in the body defense mechanisms. They are heterogenous in morphology, cytochemistry, function and surface antigens. Immunohistochemical labeling with monoclonal antibodies is one of the most specific and reliable techniques for the identification and localization of these cells. Monoclonal antibodies to macrophage and histiocyte surface or cytoplasmic antigens are important for the immunodiagnosis of both benign and malignant histiocytic lesions. They are useful in the investigation of macrophage differentiation and maturation and in the diagnosis of various inflammatory, reactive and neoplastic disorders of macrophages.
