F4/80 antibody - HS-397 017BT

F4/80 is a marker protein for murine macrophages
Rat monoclonal purified IgG
Cat. No.: HS-397 017BT
Amount: 100 µg
Price: $465.00
Cat. No. HS-397 017BT 100 µg purified IgG, lyophilized, labeled with Biotin.

Biotin is a small vitamin B complex molecule. Its small size minimizes interference with antibody binding sites and allows for efficient conjugation without compromising antibody functionality.
Biotin conjugated antibodies can be easily detected with Avidin/Streptavidin based secondary detection systems.
The streptavidin-biotin bond is one of the strongest non-covalent biological bonds known.

Albumin and azide were added for stabilization. For reconstitution add 100 µl H2O to get a 1mg/ml solution in PBS. Then aliquot and store at -20°C to -80°C until use.
Antibodies should be stored at +4°C when still lyophilized. Do not freeze!

Staining of murine spleen section with biotinylated rat anti-F4/80

The murine macrophage cell surface glycoprotein F4/80 is a member of the epidermal growth factor-seven transmembrane (EGF-TM7) family. It is involved in the generation of antigen-specific efferent regulatory T cells that suppress antigen-specific immunity but not required for the development and distribution of tissue macrophages.
Although F4/80 is widely used as a marker of murine macrophage populations it is not equivalently expressed across tissue-specific macrophage lineages: e.g. red pulp macrophages of the spleen and Kupffer cells of the liver are F4/80-positive, white pulp and marginal zone macrophages of the spleen are F4/80-negative and alveolar macrophages are F4/80dim.
F4/80 expression is not restricted to macrophages, but also found in murine Epidermal Langerhans Cells; dendritic cells of the skin. The human ortholog of F4/80, EGF-like module containing mucin-like hormone receptor (EMR)1, is absent on mononuclear phagocytic cells including monocytes, macrophages, and myeloid dendritic cells and seems to be highly specific for eosinophils in humans.
