cFluor® BYG781 Anti-Human CD4 (SK3)
The SK3 monoclonal antibody binds to human CD4, a 59-kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein in the immunoglobulin superfamily. The CD4 molecule is expressed predominantly on thymocytes and a subpopulation of mature T-helper lymphocytes. It is also present on monocytes at low levels. CD4 plays a role in cell-cell interaction by acting as a co-receptor for MHC class II in antigen recognition. CD4 also has been shown to bind glycoprotein 120 on external envelope of HIV2. The antibody was conjugated to a fluorophore and purified by affinity chromatography.

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested using flow cytometric analysis. For flow cytometric staining, the suggested use of this reagent is 5 µL per 1 million cells in a staining volume of 100 µL. If whole blood is analyzed, then use 5 µL per 100 µL. It is recommended that users titrate the antibody to obtain the optimal result for their specific application.
