Intended Use For In Vitro Diagnostic Use
Summary and Explanation The CD68 antigen is a heavily glycosylated transmembrane protein of 87-115 kDa which is specifically expressed by tissue macrophages, Langerhans cells and, at low levels, by dendriticcells. CD68 could play a role in phagocytic activities of tissue macrophages, both in intracellular lysosomal metabolism and extracel-lular cell-cell and cell-pathogen interactions. CD68 marks cells of monocyte/macrophage lineage. This antibody is capable of staining monocytes, Kupffer cells, osteoclasts, granulocytes and their precursors; Lymphomas are negative or show a few granules. This antibody may be useful for the identification of Myelomonocytic and Histiocytic Tumors. CD68 may help to distinguish Malignant Fibrous Histiocytoma from other Pleomorphic Sarcomas. However, since CD68 detects a formalin-resistant epitope that may be associated with lysosomal granules, other lysosome-rich cells may also produce positive results.
