Overview

  • Product nameAnti-CD4 antibody [vpg 39]See all CD4 primary antibodies ...
  • Description
    Mouse monoclonal [vpg 39] to CD4
  • SpecificityRecognises the feline homologue of the human CD4 antigen. This antibody does not recognise CD4 in a small number of cats, and is therefore likely to recognise a polymorphic epitope. CD4 is not expressed on feline monocytes.

  • Species reactivity
    Reacts with: Cat

    Does not react with

    Human
  • Immunogen

    Full length native protein (purified) (Feline).

  • Target

    • FunctionAccessory protein for MHC class-II antigen/T-cell receptor interaction. May regulate T-cell activation. Induces the aggregation of lipid rafts.
    • Sequence similaritiesContains 3 Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domains.
      Contains 1 Ig-like V-type (immunoglobulin-like) domain.
    • Post-translational
      modifications
      Palmitoylation and association with LCK contribute to the enrichment of CD4 in lipid rafts.
    • Cellular localizationCell membrane. Localizes to lipid rafts. Removed from plasma membrane by HIV-1 Nef protein that increases clathrin-dependent endocytosis of this antigen to target it to lysosomal degradation. Cell surface expression is also down-modulated by HIV-1 Envelope polyprotein gp160 that interacts with, and sequesters CD4 in the endoplasmic reticulum.
