Product Details
Product Code DIA-404
Product: Anti-CD4 Monoclonal Antibody
Description: Anti-mouse CD4 / DIA-404 Rat monoclonal anti-mouse T helper cell marker CD4, Clone GHH4
Category: Monoclonal Antibody
Species: Rat
Clone: GHH4
Immunogen: Recombinant protein (aa 27 - 394 of mouse CD 4)
Isotype: IgG2b kappa
Species Reactivity: Mouse, others not tested.
Specificity: Murine CD4 T helper cells (Th cells)
Form: Lyophilized, in PBS with 2% BSA, 0.05% NaN3, pH 7.4. Antibody purified from culture supernatant.
Reactivity: Antibody clone GHH4 has been developed and validated for the detection of murine CD4 in formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue sections (mouse FFPE). Clone GHH4 identifies T helper cells in murine FFPE tissue by IHC.
CD4 is a marker for T helper cells. Besides this subpopulation of mature T cells (helper/inducer), CD4 is also expressed on most thymocytes and weakly on macrophages and dendritic cells.
Antigen recognition and subsequent T-cell activation is controlled by the interaction between TCR (T-cell receptor) and pMHC (peptide-major histocompatibility complexe). T-cell activation is often enhanced by a close cooperation of the TCR with two dif-ferent co-receptors: CD8 and CD4. CD4 is a nonpolymorphous 55 kD glycoprotein belonging to the immunoglobulin superfamily. It acts as a co-receptor with the TCR during antigen-induced T cell activation and thymic differentiation by binding MHC class II and plays an important role both in T cell development and in optimal functioning of mature T cells. In T cells, CD4 associates with protein tyrosine kinase p56lck through its cytoplasmic tail.
In humans, CD4 is expressed in the majority of T-cell lymphomas. CD4 plays an important role in the classification of lympho-cytes in inflammatory lesions and malignant lymphomas. CD4 serves as HIV receptor on T cells, macrophages and brain and is downregulated by HIV proteins during AIDS progression.
