Mouse Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: Life Technologies LS46163942
CD163 is a 130kDa membrane glycoprotein. It is a member of the scavenger receptor cysteine-rich superfamily and is a receptor for the hemoglobin-haptoglobin complex. CD163 is expressed exclusively on the cell surface of human monocytes and macrophages that evolve predominantly in the late phase of inflammation. CD163 is present on all CD14 positive monocytes, most CD64 positive monocytes, and shows higher expression on CD16 positive monocytes. CD163 is upregulated on mononuclear phagocytes by IL-10, IL-6 and dexamethasone. Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and phorbol myristate acetate (PMA) both induce shedding of CD163 from the cell surface into plasma or cell supernatant.Description: The eBioGHI/61 monoclonal antibody reacts with human CD163 (Haemoglobin Scavenger Receptor, M130), a member of the macrophage scavenger receptor family. CD163 is expressed by tissue macrophages, circulating blood monocytes, and some reports suggest that it may also be expressed by haematopoietic progenitor cells. CD163 functions as a high affinity scavenger receptor for the complex of haemoglobin and haptoglobin which forms to clear haemoglobin from the blood. The high affinity for CD163 is specific for the haemoglobin-haptoglobin complex, whereas haemoglobin or haptoglobin display no to low affinity toward CD163. Upon ligand binding, CD163 initiates signal transduction which leads to the production of IL-6 and IL-10. Furthermore, it has been demonstrated that cytokines such as IL-6 and IL-10 can induce expression of CD163, whereas proinflammatory stimuli, such as LPS or TNF alpha, can cause shedding of a soluble form of CD163, whose function is unclear.Applications Reported: This eBioGHI/61 (GHI/61) antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.Applications Tested: This eBioGHI/61 (GHI/61) antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells. This can be used at 5 μL (0.5 μg) per test. A test is defined as the amount (μg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 μL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test. PerCP-eFluor™ 710 emits at 710 nm and is excited with the blue laser (488 nm); it can be used in place of PerCP-Cyanine5.5. We recommend using a 710/50 bandpass filter, however, the 695/40 bandpass filter is an acceptable alternative. Please make sure that your instrument is capable of detecting this fluorochrome.Fixation: Samples can be stored in IC Fixation Buffer (cat. 00-8222) (100 μL of cell sample + 100 μL of IC Fixation Buffer) or 1-step Fix/Lyse Solution (cat. 00-5333) for up to 3 days in the dark at 4°C with minimal impact on brightness and FRET efficiency/compensation. Some generalizations regarding fluorophore performance after fixation can be made, but clone specific performance should be determined empirically.Excitation: 488 nm; Emission: 710 nm; Laser: Blue Laser.Filtration: 0.2μm post-manufacturing filtered.
