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.

Application Name Verified Min Dilution Max Dilution
Flow Cytometry 1
  1. 1Membrane permeabilisation is required for this application. Bio-Rad recommends the use of Leucoperm™ (Product Code BUF09) for this purpose.
Where this antibody has not been tested for use in a particular technique this does not necessarily exclude its use in such procedures. Suggested working dilutions are given as a guide only. It is recommended that the user titrates the antibody for use in their own system using appropriate negative/positive controls.
Flow Cytometry
Use 20ul of the suggested working dilution to label 106 cells in 100ul.
