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.

ab25475 staining CD4 (red) in mouse spleen tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-Fr - frozen sections). Tissue was fixed with paraformaldehyde and blocked with 5% BSA for 1 hour at 25°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/100 in PBS) for 12 hours at 4°C. A Cy3®-conjugated Donkey anti-rabbit IgG polyclonal (1/500) was used as the secondary antibody.
Flow Cytometry analysis of BALB/c mouse splenocytes labeling CD4 with ab25475 at 1 μg/106 cells dilution (purple). A Mouse Anti-Rat IgG2b-PE was used as the secondary antibody. Grey - Isotype Control, Rat IgG2b-UNLB followed by Mouse Anti-Rat IgG2b-PE.
