Rat anti Mouse CD11b antibody, clone 5C6 recognizes CD11b, also known as the integrin alpha M chain. CD11b is implicated in various adhesive interactions of monocytes, macrophages and granulocytes as well as in mediating the uptake of complement-coated particles.

Rat anti Mouse CD11b antibody, clone 5C6 immunoprecipitates a heterodimer of ~165 and ~95 kDa. This clone also exhibits various functional properties, reportedly inhibiting adhesion in vitro and inflammatory recruitment in vivo. Rat anti Mouse CD11b antibody, clone 5C6 also inhibits delayed hypersensitivity, potentiates bacterial infections and inhibits type 1 diabetes.
