The BM8 monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse F4/80 antigen, an approximately 160kDa surface receptor. It belongs to the EGF-TM7 family of proteins. As such it contains seven EGF-like domains on its extracellular N-terminus, seven transmembrane spanning sequences, and an intracellular C-terminal domain showing homology to other TM7 superfamily members. The F4/80 antigen is expressed by a majority of mature macrophages and is one of the best markers for this population of cells. However, other cell types, such as peritoneal eosinophils, Langerhans cells, and some other dendritic cell subtypes, have been reported to express this antigen as well. Expression of F4/80 commences during early myeloid development in vivo and can be upregulated on BM cells stimulated in vitro with M-CSF. Some populations of macrophages, especially in the lymphoid microenvironment, may be devoid of F4/80.
