    MDA-MB-231 breast cancer cells were stained with anti-human CD68 (clone Y1/82A) using 1:100 dilution, followed by DyLight™ 649 anti-mouse Ig secondary antibody (red) plus DAPI staining for nuclei (blue). Cells were fixed with 4% PFA, permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100, blocked with 10% serum, and incubated O/N at 4°C. Images were taken under 20x (filter set: EX 647/10x, Dichroic 665LP, EM 700/70x) at exposure 4s. Data provided by John Nolan and Er Liu, La Jolla Bioengineering Institute.

CD68 is a 110 kD glycoprotein, also known as macrosialin, belonging to the sialomucin family. It is closely related to the family of acidic, highly glycosylated lysosomal-associated membrane proteins (LAMPs). CD68 is predominately expressed in cytoplasmic granules of monocytes/macrophages, dendritic cells, and granulocytes. It is one of the useful myeloid cell markers. Further studies have shown that CD68 is also expressed by a subset of hematopoietic progenitors, γ/δ T cells, NK cells, LAK cells, subset of B cells, fibroblasts, and endothelial cells. The biological function of CD68 is still unknown.

Recommended Usage

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by intracellular immunofluorescent staining with flow cytometric analysis. For flow cytometric staining, the suggested use of this reagent is ≤ 0.125 µg per million cells in 100 µL volume. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

Application Notes

Additional reported application: immunohistochemical staining of frozen tissue sections. This clone was tested in-house and does not work on formalin fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue.
