Macrophages antibody | BA4D5
Filter by Application:F IF Reset
|Mouse anti Pig Macrophages antibody, clone BA4D5 recognizes porcine cells of the monocyte/macrophage lineage. Expression of the antigen is increased with maturation, with higher expression on peritoneal and alveolar macrophages.
Some expression has also been observed on peripheral blood lymphocytes.
The antigen recognized by clone BA4D5 has a broad tissue distribution and this antibody stains macrophages in a range of tissues, including the thymus, spleen periarteriolar lymphoid sheath (PALS), spleen red pulp and the Peyer's patches. Expression has also been reported on some non-heamatopoietic cells including endothelial cells.
It is believed that clone BA4D5 may be specific for porcine CD68 (Poulsen et al. 2016) although the protein recognized by this antibody has not yet been fully characterized. The protein is expressed on the cell surface, although it is most abundantly expressed in the cytoplasm.
