Mouse CTLA4 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Mouse CTLA4 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of mouse CTLA4 in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin).
CTLA-4(Cytotoxic T-Lymphocyte Antigen 4), also known as CD152(Cluster of differentiation 152), is a protein receptor that down regulates the immune system. CTLA4 is a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily, which is expressed on the surface of Helper T cells and transmits an inhibitory signal to T cells. CTLA4 is similar to the T-cell co-stimulatory protein, CD28, and both molecules bind to CD80 and CD86, also called B7-1 and B7-2 respectively, on antigen-presenting cells. CTLA4 transmits an inhibitory signal to T cells, whereas CD28 transmits a stimulatory signal. Blockade of CTLA4 expression in vitro augmented HIV-specific CD4-positive T-cell function.
