I beg your pardon, you are correct, I was thinking of cd11b not cd11c, as
F4/80 is for macs not dendritic cells.

Correct me if I am wrong but CD11c is predominantly on dendritic cells and
F4/80 is for predominantly macrophage/myeloid populations (therefore a good
CD11b substitute). Are you sure you should use F4/80 as a CD11c substitute?

An alternative to cd11c for macrophages is rat anti mouse f4/80 which I use
from Serotec, it works in frozen and ffpe tissue.

You wrote:  Hi all - I'm looking for a good antibody to use on mouse tissue

to look for CD11c - does anyone have a suggestion for a good antibody 

source? Thanks in advance - Melissa


We us CD11c, HL3 clone, Armenian Hamster anti Mouse.  Negative control is
Armenian Hamster IgG1 from BD Pharmingen/Invitrogen.  Tissues are fresh
frozen sections fixed with our favorite acetone/absolute ethanol fixative,
although you can use 4C acetone for 10 min on overnight air dried sections.
I will be happy to send the other fixative recipe if you want it.
