Aqueous buffered solution containing ≤0.09% sodium azide.

Preparation And Storage

The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. Store undiluted at 4°C.

Recommended Assay Procedures

We recommend the use of Cytofix/Cytoperm (Cat. No. 554714) for the cells fixation and permeabilization, and then do the intracellular staining.

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to for technical protocols.
  3. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.

The Y1/82A monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD68 which is also known as, Scavenger receptor class D member 1 (SCARD1), Macrosialin, or GP110. CD68 is a cell surface 110 kDa-type I-transmembrane glycoprotein that is primarily expressed in cytoplasmic granules of monocytes, macrophages, dendritic cells, granulocytes, myeloid progenitor cells and, reportedly, a subset of CD34-positive hemopoietic bone marrow progenitor cells. CD68 belongs to the sialomucin family and serves as a scavenger receptor that can bind and internalize oxidized low density lipoproteins (LDL). This antibody is useful in studies of myeloid cell development and function.

This antibody is routinely tested by flow cytometric analysis. Other applications were tested at BD Biosciences Pharmingen during antibody development only or reported in the literature.

Format Details
Down Arrow Up Arrow
Tissue culture supernatant is purified by either protein A/G or affinity purification methods. Both methods yield antibody in solution that is free of most other soluble proteins, lipids, etc. This format provides pure antibody that is suitable for a number of downstream applications including: secondary labeling for flow cytometry or microscopy, ELISA, Western blot, etc.
