6 cells. ab18427-Mouse monoclonal IgG2b, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.
Use at an assay dependent concentration.
Function Accessory protein for MHC class-II antigen/T-cell receptor interaction. May regulate T-cell activation. Induces the aggregation of lipid rafts.
Sequence similarities Contains 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 localization Cell 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.
