The CD4 antigen is involved in the recognition of the type II MHC antigen. It is also a receptor for HIV. It is present on most T helper cells and normal thymocytes. The cytoplasmic portion of CD4 is associated with p56lck tyrosine kinase. CD4 expression is commonly found in human lymph nodes and tonsils. CD44 is a type 1 transmembrane glycoprotein also known as Phagocytic Glycoprotein-1 (pgp-1) and HCAM. CD44 is the receptor for hyaluronate and exists as a large number of different isoforms due to alternative RNA splicing. The major isoform expressed on lymphocytes, myeloid cells, and erythrocytes is a glycosylated type 1 transmembrane protein. Other isoforms contain glycosaminoglycans and are expressed on hematopoietic and non-hematopoietic cells. CD44 is involved in adhesion of leukocytes to endothelial cells, stromal cells, and the extracellular matrix.

Development of thymic microenvironments in vitro is oxygen-dependent and requires permanent presence of T-cell progenitors.
A18646 was used in flow cytometry to investigate factors that mediate induction and maintenance of the 3D configuration of the epithelial network in fetal thymic lobes in vitro.
