|Calculated MW||51111 Da|
|Other Names||CD4; CD4 molecule; CD4mut; CD4 antigen (p55); CD4 receptor; T-cell surface antigen T4/Leu-3; T-cell surface glycoprotein CD4|
|Format||Supplied at 0.5 mg/ml in Tris saline, 0.02% sodium azide, pH7.3 with 0.5% bovine serum albumin. Aliquot and store at -20°C. Minimize freezing and thawing.|
|Immunogen||Peptide with sequence C-KNKEVSVKRVTQDPK, from the internal region of the protein sequence according to NP_000607.1; NP_001181943.1.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||Goat Anti-CD4 Antibody (internal region) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Accessory protein for MHC class-II antigen/T-cell receptor interaction. May regulate T-cell activation. Induces the aggregation of lipid rafts.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein Note=Localizes to lipid rafts. Removed from plasma membrane by HIV-1 Nef protein that increases clathrin-dependent endocytosis of this antigen to target it to lysosomal degradation. Cell surface expression is also down-modulated by HIV-1 Envelope polyprotein gp160 that interacts with, and sequesters CD4 in the endoplasmic reticulum|
