Anti-mouse CD4 (Clone GK1.5)
The GK1.5 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 GK1.5 antibody has been shown to compete with clones YTS 177 and YTS 191 for CD4 binding.
This Antibody Is Useful For:
in vivo CD4+ T cell depletion
ALWAYS specifically formulated for in vivo use and feature:
Ultra-low endotoxin levels
Preservative, stabilizer, and carrier protein-free
Recommended Control and Buffer:
Rat IgG2b isotype control, anti-keyhole limpet hemocyanin
The LTF-2 monoclonal antibody reacts with keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH). Because KLH is not expressed by mammals this antibody is ideal for use as an isotype-matched control for rat IgG2b antibodies in most in vivo and in vitro applications.
InVivoPure pH 6.5 Dilution Buffer
InVivoPure™ dilution buffers are specifically formulated and tested to satisfy the stringent requirements for in vivo applications. They are extremely low in endotoxin, have been screened for murine pathogens, tested in animal models for toxicity and are formulated with respect to buffer composition and pH to satisfy the requirements of Bio X Cell’s antibodies.
