Clone AFS98 recognizes an epitope on mouse CD115.
CD115 is expressed on monocytes, macrophages, plasmacytoid and conventional dendritic cells, osteoclasts, and peritoneal exudate cells.
CD115 antibody, clone AFS98, recognizes CD115, also known as mouse colony-stimulating factor 1 receptor (CSF-1R and macrophage colony-stimulating factor receptor (M-CSFR). CD115 is a 150kDa single-pass type I membrane protein encoded by the c-fms gene that belongs to the type III protein tyrosine kinase receptor family. CD115 has an immunoglobulin-like extracellular domain, transmembrane domain, and C-terminal tail receptor and is expressed by monocytes, macrophages, plasmacytoid and conventional dendritic cells (DCs), osteoclasts, and their precursors. CD115 is the receptor for CSF1, also known as M-CSF, and IL-34. Binding and signaling through CD115 regulates the proliferation, differentiation, survival, and cytokine-production of monocytes and macrophages1,2. In addition, CD115 plays a key role in the differentiation and proliferation of osteoclasts as well as their bone resorption activity3. Mutations in CSF-1R are associated with cancer, including myeloid malignancies, Alzheimer’s disease, and other inflammatory and autoimmune diseases4. The presence of tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs) expressing CSF-1R correlates with poor survival in various tumor types5,6, and efforts to eliminate these TAMs using CSF1R small-molecule inhibitors and monoclonal antibodies are currently in clinical trials7.
