CD11b Rat anti-Mouse, PE-Texas Red®, Clone: M1/70.15, Invitrogen
Rat Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: Invitrogen RM2817
The M1/70.15 monoclonal antibody (mAb) reacts with the alpha-M subunit of Mac-1 (CD11b/CD18). For this PE-Texas Red conjugate: excitation 488 nm/peak emission 616 (nm). Applications for the M1/70.15 mAb include immunoprecipitation, immunostaining for flow cytometry, IHC of acetone-fixed frozen sections, and blocking of CR3-mediated rosetting. Use dim light during handling, incubation with cells and prior to analysis. It is recommended that cells be analyzed within 18 hours of staining. If the reagent is being diluted, it is recommended that only the quantity to be used within one week be diluted. Every lot is tested by flow cytometry using freshly harvested mouse blood.CD11b (integrin alpha-M, ITGAM, integrin alpha-X, ITGAX) is a 165 kDa adhesion molecule that associates non-covalently with integrin beta-2 (CD18). The CD11b/CD18 heterodimeric complex is also known as integrin alpha-M beta-2, Mac-1, and CR3 (complement receptor 3). CD11b is expressed on the surface of monocytes/macrophages, granulocytes, activated lymphocytes, a subset of NK cells, a subset of dendritic cells, and microglia in the brain. CD11b/CD18 functions as the receptor for ICAM-1 (CD54), ICAM-2 (CD102), ICAM-4 (CD242), CD14, CD50, CD23, heparin, iC3b, fibrinogen, and Factor X -these adhesions are critical for cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions. CD11b is expressed on 8% of spleen cells, 44% of bone marrow cells, and less than 1% of thymocytes, and is commonly used as a microglial marker in nervous tissue. The expression of CD11b increases during monocyte maturation and expression levels vary on tissue macrophages. Further, peritoneal macrophages are reported to express higher levels of CD11b than splenic macrophages. Diseases associated with CD11b dysfunction include systemic lupus erythematosus 6 and ITGAM-related susceptibility to systemic lupus erythematosus.
