Description: This TNKUPJ monoclonal antibody recognizes mouse CD163. CD163 is a 130kDa surface receptor expressed by certain subsets of tissue macrophages, including splenic red pulp macrophages, Kupffer cells, intestinal lamina propria macrophages and a small fraction of peritoneal macrophages. In contrast to human blood monocytes, mouse monocytes do not express CD163. Also, unlike human CD163, mouse CD163 is not as readily induced by M2 polarizing cytokines, and it is not a good marker of M2 macrophages. No common cell lines of monocytic or macrophage origin express mouse CD163. In humans, CD163 has been shown to be proteolytically cleaved and shed from the cell surface, and it acts as a soluble anti-inflammatory factor.

This TNKUPJ antibody will detect CD163 on fixed and permeabilized cells allowing for staining of the intracellular pool of this receptor. Although CD163 is relatively stable to collagenase digestion, aggressive tissue dissociation protocols might potentially decrease the amount of surface CD163. In these cases intracellular detection is recommended.

Applications Reported: This TNKUPJ antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.

Applications Tested: This TNKUPJ antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of mouse splenocytes. This may be used at less than or equal to 0.25 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.

Brilliant Ultra Violet™ 615 (BUV615) is a tandem dye that emits at 615 nm and is intended for use on cytometers equipped with an ultraviolet (355 nm) laser. Please make sure that your instrument is capable of detecting this fluorochrome.

When using two or more Super Bright, Brilliant Violet™, Brilliant Ultra Violet™, or other polymer dye-conjugated antibodies in a staining panel, it is recommended to use Super Bright Complete Staining Buffer (Product # SB-4401-42) or Brilliant Stain Buffer™ (Product # 00-4409-75) to minimize any non-specific polymer interactions. Please refer to the datasheet for Super Bright Staining Buffer or Brilliant Stain Buffer for more information.

Light sensitivity: This tandem dye is sensitive to photo-induced oxidation. Please protect this vial and stained samples from light.

Fixation: Samples can be stored in IC Fixation Buffer (Product # 00-8222-49) (100 µL of cell sample + 100 µL of IC Fixation Buffer) or 1-step Fix/Lyse Solution (Product # 00-5333-54) for up to 3 days in the dark at 4°C with minimal impact on brightness and FRET efficiency/compensation. Some generalizations regarding fluorophore performance after fixation can be made, but clone-specific performance should be determined empirically.

Excitation: 350 nm; Emission: 615 nm; Laser: Ultraviolet Laser.
