MA1-91124 detects F4/80 from mouse samples.
MA1-91124 has been successfully used in immunohistochemistry (frozen tissue), immunohistochemistry (paraffin tissue), immunoprecipitation, Western blot, radioimmune assay and Flow cytometry applications. Positive control of mouse macrophages suggested. MA1-91124 detects a band of approximately 160 kDa due to the protein being heavily glycosylated, predicted molecular weight of precursor protein is 102 kDa.
The MA1-91124 immunogen is thioglycollate stimulated peritoneal macrophages from C57/BL mice

F4/80 antigen is a 160 kDa cell surface glycoprotein that is a member of the EGF TM7 family of proteins and shares 68% overall amino acid identity with human EGF module containing mucin like hormone receptor 1 (EMR1). Expression of F4/80 is heterogeneous and is reported to vary during macrophage maturation and activation. The F4/80 antigen is expressed on a wide range of mature tissue macrophages including Kupffer cells, Langerhans, microglia, macrophages located in the gut lamina propria, peritoneal cavity, lung, thymus, bone marrow stroma and macrophages in the red pulp of the spleen. F4/80 expression has also been reported on a subpopulation of dendritic cells but is absent from macrophages located in T cell areas of the spleen and lymph node. The ligands and biological functions of the F4/80 antigen have not yet been determined but recent studies suggest a role for F4/80 in the generation of efferent CD8+ve regulatory T cells.
