CD4 in Mouse Splenocytes. CD4 was detected in immersion fixed mouse splenocytes using Rat Anti-Mouse CD4 Biotinylated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # BAM554) at 25 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Streptavidin (red; Catalog # NL999) and counterstained with DAPI(blue). Specific staining was localized to plasma membranes.

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.
