Rat anti Dog CD4 antibody, clone YKIX302.9, is a monoclonal antibody specific for the canine CD4 cell surface antigen. Clone YKIX302.9 was clustered at the first Canine Leukocyte Antigen Workshop (CLAW) [Cobbold et al. 1992] along with clone CA13.1E4.

Rat anti Dog CD4 antibody, clone YKIX302.9 partially depletes circulating T lymphocytes when administered in vivo, but alone is not sufficient to prolong allograft survival in a canine transplant model (Watson et al. 1993).

Uniquely amongst mammals, canine CD4 is expressed by neutrophils as well as by lymphocyte subsets (Moore et al. 1992).
