CD68 (Cluster of Differentiation 68) is a glycoprotein which binds to low density lipoprotein. It is expressed on monocytes, macrophages, Kupffer cells, osteoclasts, granulocytes and their precursors. This antibody detects myelomonocytic and histiocytic tumors and it may help to distinguish malignant fibrous histiocytoma from other pleomorphic sarcomas.
