InVivoMAb anti-mouse CD4
Clone Catalog # Category
YTS 177 BE0003-3 InVivoMab Antibodies
$350 - 3685

The YTS 177 monoclonal antibody reacts with the mouse CD4. The CD4 antigen is a 55 kDa cell surface type I membrane glycoprotein belonging to the immunoglobulin superfamily. CD4 acts as a co-receptor which in cooperation with the T cell receptor (TCR) interacts with class II MHC molecules displayed by antigen presenting cells (APC). CD4 is expressed by the majority of thymocytes, most helper T cells, a subset of NK-T cells and weakly by dendritic cells and macrophages. CD4 plays an important role in the development of T cells and is required for mature T cells to function optimally. The YTS 177 antibody has been shown to compete with clones GK1.5 and YTS 191 for CD4 binding. Additionally, the YTS 177 antibody has been reported to be non-depleting but binding does induce rapid internalization of CD4 on both CD4+ Foxp3- T cells and Foxp3+ regulatory T cells. Further, the YTS 177 clone has been shown to suppress or even prevent allograft rejection, allergic reactions and autoimmune responses.
