KP1_PURE_CD68_1_Antibody_100517
IHC staining of anti-CD68 antibody (clone KP1) on formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded Alzheimer´s disease human brain tissue. Following antigen retrieval using Sodium Citrate H.I.E.R., the tissue was incubated with the primary antibody at 5 µg/ml overnight at 4°C. BioLegend's Ultra Streptavidin (USA) HRP Detection Kit (Multi-Species, DAB, Cat. No. 929901) was used for detection followed by hematoxylin counterstaining, according to the protocol provided. Images were captured with a 40X objective. Scale Bar: 20 µm

Description

Mouse CD68, also known as macrosialin, is an 85-115 kD member of the lysosomal-associated membrane protein (LAMP) family. It is a heavily glycosylated and predominantly intracellular protein, mainly in late endosomes. Macrosialin is the murine homolog to the human macrophage glycoprotein CD68. It is expressed on tissue macrophages, Langerhans cells and at low levels on dendritic cells. High levels of CD68 expression are detected in activated microglia. LAMP proteins may have functions related to cell-cell interaction or cell-ligand interaction. The biological function of CD68 is not completely understood.
