Safety Data Sheet (SDS) PerCP Anti-mouse CD4 Antibody     Product Data Sheet (PDF)    
PerCP Anti-mouse CD4 Antibody
1102155 25 µg $95.00       
1102160 100 µg $240.00       
Clone: GK1.5
Isotype: Rat IgG2b, κ
Reactivity: Mouse
Immunogen: Mouse CTL clone V4
Formulation: Phosphate-buffered solution, pH 7.2, containing 0.09% sodium azide.
Preparation: The antibody was purified by affinity chromatography, and conjugated with PerCP under optimal conditions. The solution is free of unconjugated PerCP and unconjugated antibody.
Concentration: 0.2 mg/ml
Storage & Handling: The CD4 antibody solution should be stored undiluted between 2°C and 8°C, and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.
Application:

FC - Quality tested

Application Notes:

Additional reported applications (for the relevant formats) include: blocking of CD4+ T cell activation1,4,11, thymocyte costimulation3, in vitro and in vivo depletion2,5-8, blocking of egg-sperm cell adhesion1,4, immunohistochemical staining of acetone-fixed frozen sections9,10, and immunoprecipitation1,2. The GK1.5 antibody is able to block CD4 mediated cell adhesion and T cell activation. Binding of GK1.5 antibody to CD4 T cells can be blocked by RM4-5 antibody , but not RM4-4 antibody .

Recommended Usage:

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by immunofluorescent staining with flow cytometric analysis. For flow cytometric staining, the suggested use of this reagent is ≤ 0.25 µg per 106 cells in 100 µl volume. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

* PerCP has a maximum absorption of 482 nm and a maximum emission of 675 nm.

C57BL/6 mouse splenocytes were stained

C57BL/6 mouse splenocytes were stained with CD4 (clone GK1.5) PerCP (filled histogram) or rat IgG2b, κ PerCP isotype control (open histogram).



Description:

CD4 is a 55 kD protein also known as L3T4 or T4. It is a member of the Ig superfamily, primarily expressed on most thymocytes, a subset of T cells, and weakly on macrophages and dendritic cells. It acts as a coreceptor with the TCR during T cell activation and thymic differentiation by binding MHC class II and associating with the protein tyrosin kinase, lck.

Other Names: L3T4, T4
Structure: Ig superfamily, 55 kD
Distribution: Majority of thymocytes, T cell subset
Function: TCR co-receptor, T cell activation
Ligand Receptor: MHC class II molecule
