Protein Name & Synonyms:
This product recognizes the 110KD integral membrane glycoprotein CD68 (Macrosialin) 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 immunohistochemical studies, 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.
This product has also been reported as being suitable for use in immunoprecipitation studies.
