What is the function of CD4?

CD4 is a surface receptor expressed by helper T lymphocytes, known as CD4+ T cells. Its purpose is to stablize the interaction between the T cell receptor (on the T cell) and an antigen-bearing MHC Class II molecule (on an antigen presenting cell). Under the right circumstances, this interaction activates CD4+ T cells that recognize an invading pathogen. Activated CD4+ T cells do many things, and are required for a robust adaptive immune response.

What sends word to killer T cells and actavaite B cells?

Helper (CD4+) T Cells

What type of cells are CD4 cells?

CD4 cells are a subtype of T cells, which are produced in the thymus gland and regulate the immune system's response to infected or malignant cells.

What a low cd4 cell count?

Presumably, a lower-than-normal number of CD4+ T lymphocytes in your blood. CD4+ T cells are required for a healthy immune system.

What is the role of cd4 receptors in HIV?

The role of the CD4 receptors in HIV is so that the virus fuses with the T helper cells.

Why does HIV attack T Cells?

it does not attack t cells per se. it rather attacks the CD4+ cells which can monocytes or langerhan's cells too.

How do you increase your immune systems CD4 counts?

An abnormally low number of CD4+ T cells is a symptom of AIDS, the disease caused by HIV. Because HIV infects and kills CD4+ T cells, a person infected with HIV must use anti-viral treatments to suppress the virus and allow his CD4+ T cell population to renew.
