Mouse monoclonal antibody raised against native CD4.
Native purified CD4 from human thoracic duct lymphocytes.
The CD4 antigen is found on a subset of T cells including helper/inducer cells representing 45% of normal peripheral blood lymphocytes. It is also present on 75% of thymocytes and at a lower level on monocytes and macrophages. The CD4+T cell subset is involved in cellular interactions T-T, T-B and T-macrophages. It has been proposed that the CD4 antigen interacts with class II antigens. The CD4 antigen is a part of the HIV virus receptor on T cells.
