CD204, Macrophage Scavenger Receptor

Catalogue number: CD204-1

Product Type Primary Antibodies
Units50 µg
Species reactivity Human
Application IHC(C, P), WB

The macrophage scavenger receptor (MSR-A) has been identified in the search for a receptor molecule responsible for the deposition of cholesterol in atherosclerosis by receptor-mediated uptake of LDL. MSR-A has a broad spectrum for ligand binding: oxidized LDL, acetylated LDL, advanced glycation end products (AGE), polyribonucleotides such as poly-G and poly-I, and bacterial surface lipids, lipopolysaccharides, and lipoteichoic acid. MSR-A, CD204, a 72 kDa glycoprotein from histiocytic macrophages.


Immunogen: Recombinant human protein type I SR-A


Secondary Reagents: As secondary system in immunohistochemistry we recommend our universal staining kits DAB and AEC (DA005 and AE005), the staining kit mouse IgG (rat absorbed, Item No. DA007)


Working Concentration: (liquid conc.) 2 μg / ml

Pre-Treatment: Formaldehyde-fixed tissue must be subjected to antigen unmasking, 10 min citrate buffer 0.01 M, pH 2.0, alternatively, glycol-based demasking solution G may be used (DE007).

Positive Control: Human Liver
