Purified CD Antibodies & Fluorescent Labeled Conjugates
We have expanded our catalog of Cluster of Differentiation (CD) cell surface molecules, a constantly-growing focus in the continued advancement of immune research.
Because these molecules are expressed at varying degrees and cell types, multiparameter flow cytometric analysis utilizing two or more combinations of fluorescently labeled CD antibodies enables clear resolution of particular cell type or subtype.
Our CD antibodies are available both in purified forms and labeled with common fluorophores as well as our improved iFluor™ and mFluor™ dyes for experiments requiring high photostability and brightness.
Functions primarily as a T cell co-receptor promoting the activation of cytotoxic T cells (CD8+ T cells) and T helper cells (CD4+ T cells), and ultimately helping to shape the adaptive immune response.
Unfortunately serves as a high affinity receptor for HIV, which the virus utilizes for entry into host T cells. CD4 counts are frequently used to assess the health of a patient’s immune system infected with HIV.
