Sino Biological CD4 Recombinant Human Protein, hIgG1-Fc.His Tag
This recombinant human protein is expressed from a DNA sequence encoding the extracellular domain (Met 1-Trp 390) of human CD4 (NP_000607.1) fused to the polyhistidine-tagged Fc region of human IgG1 at the C-terminus
Manufacturer: Invitrogen 10400H03H250
DescriptionCluster of Differentiation 4 (CD4) recombinant human protein is supplied as a lyophilized powder. This protein is suitable for use in the study of protein-protein interactions, and cell biology research applications. It can also be used as a protein standard.Background: Human T-cell surface glycoprotein CD4, also known as T-cell surface antigen T4/Leu-3, is a single-pass type I membrane protein. CD4 contains three Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domains and one Ig-like V-type (immunoglobulin-like) domain. CD4 is a glycoprotein expressed on the surface of T helper cells, regulatory T cells, monocytes, macrophages, and dendritic cells. CD4 amplifies the signal generated by the TCR. CD4 interacts directly with MHC class II molecules on the surface of the antigen presenting cell via its extracellular domain. CD4 is a primary receptor used by HIV-1 to gain entry into host T cells. HIV infection leads to a progressive reduction of the number of T cells possessing CD4 receptors. Therefore, medical professionals refer to the CD4 count to decide when to begin treatment for HIV-infected patients.
