Rabbit anti Human CD184 / CXCR4 antibody
recognizes the human G-protein-coupled chemokine receptor CD184, also known as CXCR4. CD184 is a 352 amino acid ~40 kDa cell surface protein known to act as a co-factor in HIV infection of CD4+
T cells (Bleul et al. 1997
). Mutations in the CD184 gene are associated with WHIM syndrome (WHIMS
), an inherited combined immunodeficiency disease (Taniuchi et al..
