Reproducibility is key to advancing scientific discovery and accelerating scientists’ next breakthrough.
Abcam is leading the way with our range of recombinant antibodies, knockout-validated antibodies and knockout cell lines, all of which support improved reproducibility.
We are also planning to innovate the way in which we present recommended applications and species on our product datasheets, so that only applications & species that have been tested in our own labs, our suppliers or by selected trusted collaborators are covered by our Abpromise™ guarantee.
In preparation for this, we have started to update the applications & species that this product is Abpromise guaranteed for.
We are also updating the applications & species that this product has been “predicted to work with,” however this information is not covered by our Abpromise guarantee.
Applications & species from publications and Abreviews that have not been tested in our own labs or in those of our suppliers are not covered by the Abpromise guarantee.

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab252152 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
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.
modificationsPalmitoylation 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.

C57 BL/6 mouse splenocytes stained with ab252152 (right) or Rabbit IgG (monoclonal) Allophycocyanin (ab232814) isotype (left). Cells were incubated for 30 min on ice in 1x PBS containing 10 µg/ml anti CD16/CD32 and 10 % normal goat serum to block FC receptors and non-specific protein-protein interaction followed by the antibody (ab252152) or Rabbit IgG (monoclonal) Allophycocyanin (ab232814) isotype (1x 106 in 100 µl at 5 µg/ml (1/100)) for 30 min on ice. The cells were simultaneously stained with CD8.
Acquisition of >30,000 events were collected using a 40 mW Red laser (640nm) and 670/14 bandpass filter. Events were gated on live CD3 positive T cells.
