Price (USD)
Clone CT-4
Isotype Mouse (BALB/c) IgG1κ
Isotype Control Mouse IgG1-PE/CY7
Immunogen Chicken thymocytes and Ig-negative blood leukocytes
Specificity Chicken/Turkey/Quail/Pigeon CD4
Description CD4 is a type I transmembrane glycoprotein expressed on approximately 70% of thymocytes, 10% of spleen cells, and 45% of peripheral blood lymphocytes but less than 1% of bursal cells. The monoclonal antibody CT-4 inhibits both PHA- and Con A-induced proliferative responses of splenocytes and PWM-induced IL-2 production. This antibody also reacts with turkey and quail as demonstrated by flow cytometry.
