Anti-CD68 [Y1/82A]


Catalogue Number 151370
Applications FACS IHC IF WB

Synonyms CD68 Molecule; CD68 Antigen; Macrophage Antigen CD68; GP110; Scavenger Receptor Class D; Member; Scavenger Receptor Class D; SCARD1; LAMP4
Reactivity Human
Relevance 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.
