The structure of the T-lymphocyte cell surface glycoprotein CD4 is of considerable biological and medical interest. Recombinant rat CD4 expressed in soluble form in mammalian cells and complexed with W3/25 monoclonal Fab fragments formed crystals that diffract to 3.5 A and have the orthorhombic space group P2(1)2(1)2 or P2(1)2(1)2(1). The unit cell has dimensions a = 317 A, b = 161 A and c = 41.8 A and the asymmetric unit consists of two CD4:Fab complexes. These crystals are of suitable quality for X-ray diffraction analysis.
