Hamster anti Mouse CD152 antibody, clone 1B8 recognizes mouse CD152, commonly known as CTLA-4 (cytotoxic T-lymphocyte protein 4), a structural homolog for CD28. CD152 binds the same ligands as CD28, namely CD80 (B7.1) and CD86 (B7.2), but with much higher affinity. However, while binding of CD28 enhances T cell function, binding of CD152 inhibits it. CD152 is not detected on naïve T-cells and is induced upon T-cell activation.

In mice, lack of CD152 leads to massive lymphoproliferative disorder leading to tissue destruction and autoimmunity, suggesting a critical role for CD152 in limiting T-cell responses. CD152 has been shown to reduce IL-2 production after ligation and can inhibit T-cell expansion. This regulatory role and the high binding affinity of CD152 make it a potential therapy for autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis.

Hamster anti Mouse CD152 antibody, clone 1B8 may be used to enhance proliferation and pro-inflammatory cytokines of lymph node cells. It may also be used to enhance tumour immunity.
