CD68 antibodies for use in flow cytometry. These single-color reagents are of value to the study of monocytes, macrophages and myeloid cells.
The CD68 protein belongs to a family of lysosomal glycoprotein (LGP)/plasma membrane shuttling proteins that play a role in endocytosis and/or lysosomal trafficking. CD68 is expressed strongly in cytoplasmic granules, and weakly on the surface of macrophages, monocytes, neutrophils, basophils and NK-cells. CD68 can also be found in the cytoplasm of non-haematopoietic tissues, especially the liver, and renal glomeruli, and tubules.
