This product is the carrier free version of product #93498. All data were generated using the same antibody clone in the standard formulation which contains BSA and glycerol.
This formulation is ideal for use with technologies requiring specialized or custom antibody labeling, including fluorophores, metals, lanthanides, and oligonucleotides. It is not recommended for ChIP, ChIP-seq, CUT&RUN, or CUT&Tag assays. If you require a carrier-free formulation for chromatin profiling, please contact us. Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with recombinant protein specific to the human CD163 protein.
CD163 is a transmembrane scavenger receptor expressed on the macrophage surface. It has 9 B-type Scavenger Receptor Cysteine-Rich (SRCR) extracellular domains mediating serum haptoglobin clearing/endocytosis, pathogen binding and signal transduction, and calcium binding (1,2). CD163 is used as a surface marker of M2 type macrophages, including M2 type tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs), which facilitate cancer progression by secreting cytokines to promote angiogenesis, immunosuppression, and metastasis (3). Inflammatory stimulation and stress signals can induce extracellular domain shedding of CD163 to generate soluble CD163 (sCD163). The increased sCD163 level in serum is associated with low-grade inflammation in disease conditions (4-7).
