The M5E2 antibody inhibits monocyte activation and cytokine production induced by LPS. Additional reported applications (for the relevant formats) include: immunohistochemical staining of acetone-fixed frozen sections, blocking of LPS stimulation, and immunofluorescence microscopy. Clone M5E2 is not recommended for immunohistochemical staining of formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded sections.

Alternate Names for CD14 Antibody (M5E2) [FITC]
monocyte differentiation antigen CD14
Myeloid cell-specific leucine-rich glycoprotein
CD14 is a 53-55 kD glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-linked membrane glycoprotein also known as LPS receptor. CD14 is expressed at high levels on monocytes and macrophages, and at lower levels on granulocytes. Some dendritic cell populations such as interfollicular dendritic cells, reticular dendritic cells, and Langerhans cells have also been reported to express CD14. As a high-affinity receptor for LPS, CD14 is involved in the clearance of gram-negative pathogens and in the upregulation of adhesion molecules and cytokines expression in monocytes and neutrophils. The M5E2 antibody inhibits monocyte activation and cytokine production induced by LPS.

The role of TLR4 in breast cancer Toll like receptors (TLRs) are highly conserved proteins that are first known for their role in pathogen recognition and immune response activation. In order to elicit the necessary immune response in reaction to a foreign pathogen, TLRs trigger cy... Read full blog post.
