CD163 antibodies, human

CD163 antibodies, human

Clone: GHI/61.1 | Dilution: 1:50
The monoclonal antibody GHI/61.1 reacts with human CD163, a single-chain transmembrane protein also known as hemoglobin scavenger receptor or M130. It is expressed by mature tissue macrophages and peripheral blood monocytes. The expression of CD163 is up-regulated
in vitro
in vivo
by anti-inflammatory mediators such as IL-10 and (gluco)corticosteroid and is shed to blood upon inflammatory activation of macrophages. CD163 functions as a high affinity scavenger receptor for the complex of haemoglobin and haptoglobin. Depending on the ligand, crosslinking of M130 initiates signal transduction leading to the production of proinflammatory cytokines Il-1ß, IL-6, and GM-CSF or the antiinflammatory cytokine IL-10.
