Thioglycolate-elicited Balb/c peritoneal macrophages intracellularly

Thioglycolate-elicited Balb/c peritoneal macrophages intracellularly stained with FA-11 Alexa Fluor® 488



Description:

Mouse CD68, also known as macrosialin, is an 85-115 kD member of the lysosomal-associated membrane protein (LAMP) family. It is a heavily glycosylated and predominantly intracellular protein, mainly in late endosomes. Macrosialin is the murine homolog to the human macrophage glycoprotein CD68. It is expressed on tissue macrophages, Langerhans cells and at low levels on dendritic cells. Lamp proteins may have functions relating to cell-cell interaction or cell-ligand interaction. The biological function of CD68 is not completely understood.

Other Names: Macrosialin
Structure: A member of the lysosomal-associated membrane protein (lamp) family.
Distribution: Expressed on tissue macrophages, Langerhans cells, and at low levels on dendritic cells.
Function: Involved in cell-cell interaction or cell-ligand interaction, still not completely understood.
