Detection of CD4 in Cotton Rat Splenocytes by Flow Cytometry. Cotton rat splenocytes were stained with Mouse Anti-Cotton Rat CD4 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB6676, filled histogram) or isotype control antibody (Catalog # MAB0041, open histogram), followed by Allophycocyanin-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # F0101B).

CD4 is an approximately 55 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein that is expressed predominantly on thymocytes and the Th1, Th2, Th17, Tfh, and Treg subsets of mature T lymphocytes. In human, CD4 is additionally expressed on macrophages, neutrophils, monocytes, NK cells, and neurons and glial cells in the brain. CD4 binding to MHC class II molecules on antigen presenting cells contributes to the formation of the immunological synapse. CD4 also functions as a chemotactic receptor for IL-16 and, in human, as a coreceptor for the gp120 surface glycoprotein of HIV-1.
