Its hard to say with this little information.  Are you looking for a cell
surface marker or for some sort of activity like a specific transcription
factor?  Since its probably the former, you might want to try CD11b/CD18
(Mo1) or CD14 (Mo2).  Check one of the charts that are put out by
companies that supply antibodies for FACS analysers for descriptions of
many others.
