Mouse anti Bovine CD4 antibody, clone CC30 recognizes a ~50 kDa transmembrane molecule considered to be the bovine homologue of human CD4. The phenotype, tissue distribution and function of T-cells expressing the bovine CD4 antigen are similar to those in other species. However, expression on macrophages has not yet been detected.

Mouse anti Bovine CD4, clone CC30 has successfully been used for immunohistochemical localization of CD4 on paraffin embedded material using zinc salt fixation (Cantón et al. 2013). Additionally, clone CC30 has been reported as being suitable for use on formal dichromate (FD5) fixed paraffin embedded tissue with amplification and antigen retrieval techniques (Gutierrez et al. 1999).
