 Testing Data of anti-CD68 antibody    Published customer image: Histology in 9V/9V/GCStg and 9V/null/GCStg mice. (A) The lung and liver sections from 9-wk old 9V/9V (row 1), 9V/9V/GCStg (row 2), 9V/null (row 3) and 9V/null/GCStg (row 4) were processed for H&E and CD68 antibody staining as indicated. Large and pale storage cells were observed in H&E stained lung and liver sections (arrows). The macrophages were indicated by anti-CD68 immunostaining (brown). Images were captured by Zeiss microscope with Spot Advance software. Scale bar was 40 um for all images. (B) The distribution and density of macrophages in 9V/null/GCStg lung and liver immunostained by anti-CD68 antibody (brown). Scale bar was 40 um for both images. (C) CD68 positive cells (CD68+) in 9V/9V/GCStg and 9V/null/GCStg lungs had significantly more CD68 stained macrophages than 9V/9V and 9V/null at 9 wks of age, respectively. The data present number of cells per image of total 5-15 images/mouse, 3 mice per genotype. Results with error bars are mean +/-S.E. The p values were from Student's t-test.From: Barnes S, Xu Y-H, Zhang W, Liou B, Setchell KDR, et al.

 Testing Data of anti-CD68 antibody    Published customer image: Leukocyte infiltration in COX-2-M/-M and COX-2+/+ mice. MPO enzymatic activity (panel A) was statistically similar in COX-2-M/-M and COX-2+/+ livers at 6 h and 24 h post-IRI. Ly-6G+ neutrophil (panel B) and granulocyte (panel C) infiltration were also comparable in COX-2-M/-M and COX-2+/+ livers after IRI. Mac-1+ (panel D) and CD68 (panel E) infiltrating macrophages were significantly reduced in COX-2-M/-M livers at 24 h post-reperfusion, but were statistically indistinguishable in COX-2-M/-M and COX-2+/+ livers at 6 h after IRI. No statistical differences in MMP-9 expression (panel F) could be demonstrated in livers of COX-2-M/-M and COX-2+/+ mice post-IRI. Representative immunostaining (panel G) of infiltrating Ly-6G+ (a,b,e,f) and Mac-1+ (c,d,g,h) leukocytes in livers of COX-2+/+ (a,c,e,g) and COX-2-M/-M (b,d,f,h) mice at 6 h (a to d) and 24 h (e to h) post IRI; (n = 5 -6/group; * indicates p

 UniProt Comments for CD68    CD68: Could play a role in phagocytic activities of tissue macrophages, both in intracellular lysosomal metabolism and extracellular cell-cell and cell-pathogen interactions. Binds to tissue- and organ-specific lectins or selectins, allowing homing of macrophage subsets to particular sites. Rapid recirculation of CD68 from endosomes and lysosomes to the plasma membrane may allow macrophages to crawl over selectin-bearing substrates or other cells. Belongs to the LAMP family. 2 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing.

Protein type: Membrane protein, integral; Cell surface

Cellular Component: membrane; lysosome; plasma membrane; integral to membrane; endosome
