Regulatory Status Legend
The 19.2 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD206 which is also known as the macrophage mannose receptor (MMR) or C-type lectin domain family 13 member D (CLEC13D). CD206 is a type I transmembrane glycoprotein of approximately 162 kDa which binds to glycoconjugates containing mannose, fucose, or N-acetylglucosamine. These carbohydrates are present on the surface of many microorganisms and enable the macrophage to bind to microorganisms through the MMR and internalize them during the process of phagocytosis. CD206 is expressed on human macrophages, endothelial cells, and cultured dendritic cells. It is not detected on resting monocytes. Mannose receptor expression is upregulated on peripheral blood mononuclear cells following 3 day incubation with GM-CSF.

Preparation and Storage
Store undiluted at 4°C.
The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.
- Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
- An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
- 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.
- Sodium azide is a reversible inhibitor of oxidative metabolism; therefore, antibody preparations containing this preservative agent must not be used in cell cultures nor injected into animals. Sodium azide may be removed by washing stained cells or plate-bound antibody or dialyzing soluble antibody in sodium azide-free buffer. Since endotoxin may also affect the results of functional studies, we recommend the NA/LE (No Azide/Low Endotoxin) antibody format, if available, for in vitro and in vivo use.
