This protein carries a human IgG1 Fc tag at the C-terminus.
The protein has a calculated MW of 67.0 kDa. The protein migrates as 67-85 kDa under reducing (R) condition (SDS-PAGE) due to glycosylation.
Less than 1.0 EU per μg by the LAL method.
>95% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Lyophilized from 0.22 μm filtered solution in Tris with Glycine, Arginine and NaCl, pH7.5. Normally trehalose is added as protectant before lyophilization.

Rhesus macaque CD4, Fc Tag on SDS-PAGE under reducing (R) condition. The gel was stained overnight with Coomassie Blue. The purity of the protein is greater than 95%.
Immobilized HIV-1 [HIV-1/Clade C (16055)] GP120, His Tag (Cat. No. GP5-V15224) at 10 μg/mL (100 μL/well) can bind Rhesus macaque CD4, Fc Tag (Cat. No. CD4-C5256)) with a linear range of 0.04-0.31 μg/mL (QC tested).
T-cell surface glycoprotein CD4 is also known as T-cell surface antigen T4/Leu-3. CD4 contains three Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domains and one Ig-like V-type (immunoglobulin-like) domain. CD4 is accessory protein for MHC class-II antigen/T-cell receptor interaction. CD4 induces the aggregation of lipid rafts. 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.
