Description: The monoclonal antibody 118/A5 recognizes human CD11c, a 150 kD type I transmembrane protein which is also known as integrin alpha X. Integrins are heterodimeric integral membrane proteins made up of an alpha and a beta chain and are involved in cell adhesion. The CD11/CD18 adhesion molecules consist of three heterodimers sharing a common beta subunit (CD18) with a distinct alpha subunit (CD11a, CD11b, CD11c). The CD11c/CD18 complex is expressed on dendritic cells (highly expressed on type 1 myeloid DCs), monocytes, macrophages, granulocytes, NK cells, and subsets of T and B cells. CD11c is also expressed in hairy cell leukemias, acute nonlymphocytic leukemias, and some B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemias. CD11c plays a role in adhesion and CTL killing through its interactions with CD54, iC3b and fibrinogen.
Applications Reported: This 118/A5 antibody has been reported for use in immunohistochemical staining of frozen tissue sections, immunohistochemical staining of formalin-fixed paraffin embedded tissue sections, and microscopy.
Applications Tested: This 118/A5 antibody has been tested by immunohistochemistry of formalin-fixed paraffin embedded human tissue using low pH antigen retrieval and can be used at less than or equal to 1 µg/mL. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.
Filter Recommendation: When using this eFluor® 570 antibody conjugate, we recommend a filter that will capture the 570 emission wavelength (for example, Excitation 545/25, 565LP, Emission 605/70). A standard Alexa Fluor® 555 or TRITC filter is acceptable.
Excitation: 555 nm; Emission: 570 nm
ITGAX is the integrin alpha X chain protein. Integrins are heterodimeric integral membrane proteins composed of an alpha chain and a beta chain. This protein combines with the beta 2 chain (ITGB2) to form a leukocyte-specific integrin referred to as inactivated-C3b (iC3b) receptor 4 (CR4). The alpha X beta 2 complex seems to overlap the properties of the alpha M beta 2 integrin in the adherence of neutrophils and monocytes to stimulated endothelium cells, and in the phagocytosis of complement coated particles.
