    Published customer image:Mouse anti Porcine CD4 alpha, clone MIL17 used for the identification of CD4 expressing cells in procine jejunal mucosa by immunofluorescence.Image caption:Colonisation expands mucosal CD4+ T cells by 21 days of age. (A) CD4 staining in jejunal mucosa from a GF pig and (B) a colonised pig at 21 days of age. Sections were stained with antibodies to CD4 and capillary endothelium (MIL11; in blue). In both (A) and (B), (i) shows the two-colour image; shows the original greyscale image for the blue channel ; shows the original greyscale image for the green channel . Scale bar represents 10 μm. (C) Area of CD4+ T cell staining in jejunal sections from piglets at birth (open diamonds) and GF piglets (open squares) and colonised piglets (black squares) at 5 and 21 days of age (see Table 1 for numbers of piglets in each experiment). *p<0.05.From: Inman CF, Laycock GM, Mitchard L, Harley R, Warwick J, Burt R, et al.

Target/Specificity Mouse anti-Porcine CD4 alpha, clone MIL17 recognizes a ~55 kDa porcine homologue to the human CD4 antigen found on the surface of helper-T cells. MIL-17 was confirmed as a member of the CD4 alpha cluster at the ‘Third International Workshop on Swine Leukocyte Differentiation Antigens’ (Haversonet al.2001). Porcine CD4 is a type 1 trans-membrane member of the immunoglobulin superfamily.Pigs appear unusual amongst mammalian species as they appear to have four populations of resting T lymphocytes. In addition to the two populations of mutually exclusive CD4+/CD8- and CD4-/CD8+ lymphocytes, they also appear to have significant populations of CD4-/CD8- and CD4+/CD8+ cells. Lymphoblasts with a double positive phenotype have been described in other species but this is not the case for mature T lymphocytic calls (Saalmulleret al.1987)Mouse anti-Pig CD4 alpha, clone MIL17 stains a population of cells with characteristic lymphocyte morphology in immunohistochemistry (Inmanet al.2010).
