CD4 Previously Observed Antibody Staining Patterns
Observed Subcellular, Organelle Specific Staining Data:
Staining with anti-CD4 antibody reveals CD4 expression is expected to be primarily localized to the plasma membrane.
Observed Antibody Staining Data By Tissue Type:
Variations in CD4 antibody staining intensity in immunohistochemistry on tissue sections are present across different anatomical locations. Low, but measureable presence of CD4 could be seen in cells in the white pulp in spleen and germinal center cells in the tonsil. We were unable to detect CD4 in other tissues. Disease states, inflammation, and other physiological changes can have a substantial impact on antibody staining patterns. These measurements were all taken in tissues deemed normal or from patients without known disease.
