Rat anti Mouse dendritic/interdigitating cells antibody, clone MIDC-8 recognizes an antigen in the cytoplasm of rat dendritic cells as distinct spots near the nucleus.

Rat anti Mouse dendritic/interdigitating cells antibody, clone MIDC-8 does not stain thymic epithelial cells which are the major contaminants in thymic dendritic cell preparations. The antigen is also absent in blood cells, bone marrow cells and macrophages isolated from the peritoneal cavity.

The antigen recognized by Rat anti Mouse dendritic/interdigitating cells antibody, clone MIDC-8 is found in interdigitating cells in T cell dependent areas of secondary lymphoid organs, the medulla of thymus, veiled cells, and very weakly in Langerhans cells (Breel et al. 1987).
