The best known mouse microglia and macrophage marker
F4/80 Antibody Mini Review - The marker and the antibody
F4/80 antibody (MCA497), clone CI:A3-1, is a well-characterized and extensively referenced mouse macrophage marker. Also known as Ly71 and EMR1, the F4/80 antigen is part of the EGF-TM7 family, it is a 160 kDa glycoprotein that shares 68% amino acid identity with human EGF-like module-containing mucin-like hormone receptor-like 1 (EMR1).
F4/80 antigen is a mature mouse cell surface glycoprotein expressed at high levels on various macrophages including: Kupffer cells, splenic red pulp macrophages, microglia, gut lamina propria, and Langerhans cells in the skin. F4/80 antigen is also expressed on the macrophages of the connective tissue, heart, kidney, reproductive, and neuroendocrine systems.
