Regulatory Status Legend
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.
FITC, fluorescein isothiocyanate, is a fluorochrome with a molecular weight of 389 Da. FITC is sensitive to pH changes and photobleaching. Due to nearly identical excitation and emission properties but different spillover characteristics, FITC and Alexa Fluor® 488 cannot be used simultaneously. FITC is relatively dim and should be reserved for highly expressed markers whenever possible.

Preparation and Storage
Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.
The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.
The antibody was conjugated with FITC under optimum conditions, and unreacted FITC was removed.
- This reagent has been pre-diluted for use at the recommended Volume per Test. We typically use 1 × 10^6 cells in a 100-µl experimental sample (a test).
- An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
- Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/pharmingen/protocols for technical protocols.
- 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.
