CD4 in Mouse Intestine. CD4 was detected in immersion fixed frozen sections of mouse intestine using Rat Anti-Mouse CD4 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB554) at 1 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Rat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS017) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to plasma membranes of lymphocytes. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Frozen Tissue Sections.

is a type I membrane glycoprotein belonging to the immunoglobulin
superfamily. It is expressed predominantly on thymocytes and a subset of
mature T lymphocytes. CD4 functions in collaboration with the T cell
receptor in the recognition of peptide antigens that are presented by
class II major histocompatibility complexes. CD4 also has been shown to
be a coreceptor of HIV entry and specifically binds gp120, the external
envelope glycoprotein of HIV.
