特異性Recognizes a determinant designated L3T4 present on mouse T-cell surface with an apparent molecular mass of 52kDa. The L3T4 antigen is expressed by the helper/inducer subset of mouse T-cells. The antigen is present on approximately 80% of thymocytes, 20% of spleen cells and 60% of lymph node cells. The expression of L3T4 correlates with class II MHC antigen reactivity on cloned T-cell lines.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
追加情報Flow Cyt: Use 1µg for 106 cells.
IF: Use at an assay dependent dilution.
IP: Use at an assay dependent dilution.
Not tested in other applications.
Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
機能Accessory protein for MHC class-II antigen/T-cell receptor interaction. May regulate T-cell activation. Induces the aggregation of lipid rafts.
翻訳後修飾Palmitoylation and association with LCK contribute to the enrichment of CD4 in lipid rafts.
細胞内局在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.
