The monoclonal antibody (mAb) ED1 is getting used extensively as a marker for rat macrophages. The distribution of the acknowledged antigen in tissues and remoted cells strongly helps this use as a macrophage marker, because the majority of macrophages are acknowledged and solely seldomly are different cell sorts stained by mAb ED1. Within the current
The heterogeneity of mononuclear phagocytes in lymphoid organs: distinct macrophage subpopulations in the rat recognized by monoclonal antibodies ED1, ED2 and ED3.
Within the current examine, a set of three monoclonal antibodies is described, every of which acknowledges cells of the monocyte-macrophage lineage within the rat. The tissue distribution, specifically in lymphoid organs, of every of the three monoclonals is decided by immunoenzyme histochemistry on cryostat sections, in addition to on cell suspensions. Outcomes present that ED1
