CD68 antibody | Ki-M7
Filter by Application:F Reset
|Mouse anti Human CD68 antibody, clone Ki-M7 recognizes human CD68 an integral membrane glycoprotein of ~110 kDa also known as Macrosialin or Gp110. CD68 is predominantly expressed on the intracellular lysosomes of macrophages/monocytes, including Kupffer cells, microglia, histiocytes and osteoclasts, and is expressed to a lesser extent by dendritic cells and peripheral blood granulocytes. Elevated expression of CD68 has been demonstrated on CD34+ cells in various human malignancies, including Acute Myeloid Leukemia.
In immunohistochemistry, CD68 can be used to aid in the identification of blastic NK lymphomas, some B cell lymphomas, and to help diagnose disorders relating to macrophage abnormalities, including malignant histocytosis and Gaucher’s disease.
Clone Ki-M7 has also been reported as being suitable for use in immunoprecipitation.
