Usage & Assay Information

Usage Recommendations Optimal conditions to be determined by end user
Bioactivity This protein binds to human T-cell receptor CD4 in ELISA and Western ELISA as determined by CD4/gp120/Anti-gp120 mAb-peroxidase capture ELISA. This protein activates human T-Lymphocytes (CD4+, CD4-), in vitro, as measured by RNA synthesis during G0 to G1

Storage Aliquot and store at -70 deg C or lower. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles

General Information

Biological Significance Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a lentivirus that causes acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), a condition in humans in which the immune system begins to fail, leading to life-threatening opportunistic infections. Envelope glycoprotein GP120 (or gp120) is a glycoprotein exposed on the surface of the HIV envelope. The 120 in its name comes from its molecular weight of 120 kilodaltons. gp120 is essential for virus entry into cells as it plays a vital role in seeking out specific cell surface receptors for entry.
