CTLA-4 (Cytotoxic T Cell Lymphocyte Antigen 4; also known as CD152) is a type I transmembrane protein, expressed on the cell surface of activated conventional T cells and on immunosuppressive regulatory T cells (Tregs) Constitutive expression. CTLA-4 is an inhibitory immune checkpoint that prevents over-stimulation of T cells and host damage. It has a competitive binding effect on stimulating CD28 ligand (CD80/CD86).
Raji-hCTLA4 cells are developed from Raji cell line (a cell line derived from human B lymphocytes). Raji cells have been successfully used as target cells for CAR-T toxicity assays and human effect studies, such as antibody-dependent cytotoxicity (ADCC), which can be derived from peripheral blood mononuclear cells, natural killer (NK) cells or T cells Jurkat reporter cell.

Creative Biolabs provides sterility testing in accordance with USP and EP regulations. All of our sterility testing is performed in an isolator or clean room environments. The cell line has been screened using the membrane filtration testing methods to confirm the absence of aerobic, anaerobic and fungi microorganisms.
Identity testing is required for newly established cell lines. Isoenzyme analysis is used to confirm the identity of the species of a cell line. Alternative methods for identity testing include DNA fingerprinting, STR analysis and karyology.
Virological Safety Testing
A broad range of viruses is susceptible to affecting human cell lines. We can provide in vivo/vitro virus saftey assays by utilizing various animal systems. These viruses include: adventitious viruses, bovine viruses, human and simian viruses, porcine viruses, retrovirus and rodent viruses.
Genetic Stability Testing
We perform cell genetic stability studies under ICH guidelines. We can provide guidance on the appropriate testing program upon your requirements.
-80°C for short-term storage, liquid nitrogen for long-term storage
Avoid multiple freeze/thaw cycles
