ProteinFind® Anti-CD4 Mouse Monoclonal Antibody

Product Details

CD4 also called T-cell surface antigen T4/Leu-3 (T-cell surface antigen T4/Leu-3),  is a transmembrane glycoprotein with molecular weight of 51 kDa. CD4 is mainly expressed in the cell surfaces such as helper T cells, macrophages, dendritic cells, or NK cells, which plays an important role in the development and activation of T cells[1-4]. CD4, a co-receptor for T-cell receptor (T cell receptor, TCR) ,which binds to the MHC class II molecules, stabilizes the combination of TCR and the complex of antigenic peptide-MHC. It can recruit the lymphocyte-specific protein tyrosine kinase Lck to the TCR-CD3 complex among the helper T cells, involves in cell activation, migration, release of cytokines, etc. through phosphorylating various substrates to initiate different intracellular signaling pathways[5]. In macrophages or NK cells, CD4 promotes the cell activation and differentiation through Lck-independent pathways, and releases cytokines[2, 4]. This product is the mouse anti-human CD4 monoclonal antibody, which is used for the specific detection of human CD4 by FC.
