Description: This product consists of two fluorochrome-conjugated monoclonal antibodies to distinguish human peripheral CD3+ and CD4+ T cells. The UCHT1 monoclonal antibody (mouse IgG1, κ) reacts with human CD3e, a 20 kDa subunit of the TCR complex. Along with the other CD3 subunits γ and δ, the ε chain is required for proper assembly, trafficking and surface expression of the TCR complex. CD3 is expressed by thymocytes in a developmentally regulated manner and by all mature T cells. The RPA-T4 monoclonal antibody (mouse IgG1, κ) reacts with the human CD4 molecule, a 59 kDa cell surface receptor expressed by a majority of thymocytes, subpopulation of mature T cells (T-helper cells) and in low levels on monocytes. CD4 is a receptor for the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
