|CD4 in Human PBMCs. CD4 was detected in immersion fixed human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) using Mouse Anti-Human CD4 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB379) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 493-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (green; Catalog # NL009) and counterstained with DAPI(blue). Specific staining was localized to the cell surface. View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Non-adherent Cells.|
CD4 is an approximately 55 kDa type I membrane glycoprotein that is expressed predominantly on most thymocytes and a subset of mature T lymphocytes. In humans, CD4 is also expressed to a lesser extent on monocytes and macrophage related cells. Human CD4 cDNA encodes a 458 amino acid (aa) precursor protein with a 25 aa signal peptide, a 371 aa extracellular region containing four immunoglobulin homology domains, a 24 aa transmembrane domain and a 38 aa cytoplasmic domain. CD4 is a coreceptor required for T cell recognition of antigens that are presented by class II major histocompatibility complexes. CD4 has been shown to be a coreceptor of HIV entry and specifically binds gp120, the external envelope glycoprotein of HIV.
