Human Cord Blood CD4+ T Helper Cells
The CD4+ T cell, also known as T helper cell (Th cell), is a type of T cells that play an important role in the immune system, particularly in the adaptive immune system. T cells Mature in the Thymus, and become CD4+ after gaining an affinity for the MHC II class receptor. Upon maturation, CD4+ T cells spread throughout the body and lymph nodes in its naïve form, awaiting the activation by the antigen each T cell receptor is pre-programmed to respond to.
The T helper cells recognize foreign antigens and regulate immune response through different cytokines secretion, causing the B cell proliferation and activating the cytotoxic T cells.
Our Cord Blood CD4+ T helper cells are isolated from cord blood mononuclear cells using immunomagnetic selection. All cord blood is collected in Citric Phosphate with Dextrose Buffer (CPD) from fully consented IRB approved donors.
