sCD4 Human Recombinant produced in Baculovirus is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 365 amino acids and having a non glycosilated molecular mass of 45 kDa. As a result of glycosilation the sCD4 migrates as a 46 kDa protein on standard SDS-PAGE. Detected By Western Imunno Blots anti CD4 monoclonal antibody.The sCD4 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
CD4 is a cell-surface glycoprotein found on the mature helper T cells and immature thymocytes, as well as on monocytes and macrophages. (Some cytotoxic T cells have CD4 protein as well.) Normally, about 65% of T cells in the blood are CD4+ (have CD4 protein protruding from their membrane). A mature T cell with either have CD4 or CD8, but not both. During one stage of development T cells develop CD4 and CD8 receptors, but they eventually are differentiated in the thymus and become more specialized.
The solution contains 10mM NaPO4 buffer pH-7.0 and 300mM NaCl.
sCD4 Human Recombinant althoµgh stable at 4°C for 1 week, should be stored below -18°C. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
