SPECIFICITY       The antibody recognizes calgranulin A (S100 calcium-bindingProtein A8) which is expressed by macrophages in chronic inflammation. It is also found in granulocytes and in subset ofnormal stratified squamous epithelia including tongue,oesophagus and buccal cells. Calgranulin is found in elevatedlevels in the serum of cystic fibrosis cases and is also expressed in the skin of patients with psoriasis,eczematous dermatitis, some GVDH and squamous cell carcinoma.

APPLICATIONS * The antibody is suitable for use on formalin fixed paraffin sections where it may be seen as a marker for reactive epthelium in skin and for skin squamous cell carcinomas.* Flow cytometry.* ELISA assay.
