CTLA-4 (Cytotoxic T-Lymphocyte Antigen 4), also known as CD152, is a protein that plays an important regulatory role in the immune system. CTLA-4 is expressed on the surface of helper T cells and transmits an inhibitory signal to T cells. Mutations in the CTLA-4 gene have been associated with various autoimmune diseases, such as systemic lupus erythematosus, insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, and other autoimmune diseases.
An identified novel transcript of the CTLA-4 gene that may represent a native soluble form of CTLA-4 (sCTLA-4) showed that eleven of twenty patients with autoimmune thyroid disease (ATD) had a high concentration of sCTLA-4, whereas only one of thirty apparently healthy volunteers contained measurable levels. sCTLA-4 immunoreactivity was inhibited by its binding to B7.1, suggesting that sCTLA-4 is a functional receptor. sCTLA-4 also plays a role in the initial immune response to infection of immune cells by HIV, along with the CD-1 pathway and others.

ELISA Capture - Quality tested
- Recommended Usage
Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by ELISA assay. For ELISA capture applications, a concentration range of 1-4 µg/mL is recommended. To obtain a linear standard curve, serial dilutions of human CTLA-4 recombinant protein ranging from 2500 to 39 pg/mL are recommended for each ELISA plate. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.
- Application Notes
ELISA Capture: The purified A3.6B10.G1 antibody is useful as the capture antibody in a sandwich ELISA assay, when used in conjunction with the biotinylated L3D10 antibody (Cat. No. 349911) as the detection antibody and recombinant human CTLA-4 (Cat. No. 591909) as the standard.
Note: For testing human soluble CTLA-4 in serum, plasma or cell culture supernatant, LEGEND MAX™ Human Soluble CTLA-4 ELISA Kit with Pre-coated Plates (Cat. No. 437407 & 437408) are specially developed and recommended.
This clone has been tested in-house and determined to not be suitable for applications in immunohistochemistry of frozen or paraffin-embedded tissue sections (IHC-F or IHC-P).
