Rat Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: Life Technologies LS50480180
EGF-Like Module Containing Mucin-Like Hormone Receptor-Like Sequence 1 (EMR1) is characterized as an Orphan-B GPCR with an unknown ligand. The C-terminus contains seven hydrophobic segments, characteristic of a G protein-coupled receptor. The N-terminus of EMR1 has 6 EGF-like modules, separated from the transmembrane segments by a serine/threonine-rich domain, a feature reminiscent of mucin-like, single-span, integral membrane glycoproteins with adhesive properties. EMR1 has been reported to be expressed in human peripheral blood mononuclear cells, monocytes, and hematopoietic and solid tumor-derived cell lines. ESTs have been isolated from human normal spleen and mixed liver/spleen libraries and from human kidney, colon, brain, and bone marrow cancer libraries.Description: The BM8 monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse F4/80 antigen, an approximately 160kDa surface receptor. It belongs to the EGF-TM7 family of proteins. As such it contains seven EGF-like domains on its extracellular N-terminus, seven transmembrane spanning sequences, and an intracellular C-terminal domain showing homology to other TM7 superfamily members. The F4/80 antigen is expressed by a majority of mature macrophages and is one of the best markers for this population of cells. However, other cell types, such as peritoneal eosinophils, Langerhans cells, and some other dendritic cell subtypes, have been reported to express this antigen as well. Expression of F4/80 commences during early myeloid development in vivo and can be upregulated on BM cells stimulated in vitro with M-CSF. Some populations of macrophages, especially in the lymphoid microenvironment, may be devoid of F4/80.Applications Reported: This BM8 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.Applications Tested: This BM8 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of mouse resident peritoneal exudate cells. This can be used at less than or equal to 1 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. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.eFluor™ 660 is a replacement for Alexa Fluor™ 647. eFluor™ 660 emits at 659 nm and is excited with the red laser (633 nm). Please make sure that your instrument is capable of detecting this fluorochome.Excitation: 633-647 nm; Emission: 668 nm; Laser: Red Laser.Filtration: 0.2μm post-manufacturing filtered.
