Detection of Human B7‑H3 by Western Blot.
Western blot shows lysates of LNCaP human prostate cancer cell line and U2OS human osteosarcoma cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human B7‑H3 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB1027) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF018). A specific band was detected for B7‑H3 at approximately 90-110 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
Detection of B7‑H3 in Human Dendritic Cells by Flow Cytometry.
Human monocyte-derived dendritic cells were stained with Mouse Anti-Human B7‑H3 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB1027, filled histogram) or isotype control antibody (Catalog # MAB002, open histogram), followed by Allophycocyanin-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # F0101B).
Detection of B7-H3 in PC‑3 Human Cell Line by Flow Cytometry.
PC‑3 human prostate cancer cell line was stained with Mouse Anti-Human B7-H3 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB1027, filled histogram) or isotype control antibody (Catalog # MAB002, open histogram), followed by Phycoerythrin-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG F(ab')2 Secondary Antibody (Catalog # F0102B).
Western Blot Shows Human B7‑H3 Specificity by Using Knockout Cell Line.
Western blot shows lysates of U2OS human osteosarcoma parental cell line and B7-H3 knockout U2OS cell line (KO). PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human B7‑H3 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB1027) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF018). A specific band was detected for B7‑H3 at approximately 95 kDa (as indicated) in the parental U2OS cell line, but is not detectable in knockout U2OS cell line. GAPDH (Catalog # MAB5718) is shown as a loading control. This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Human B7 homolog 3 (B7-H3) is a member of the B7 family of immune proteins that provide signals for regulating immune responses (1‑3). Other family members include B7-1, B7-2, B7-H2, PD-L1 (B7-H1), and PD-L2. B7 proteins are immunoglobulin (Ig) superfamily members with extracellular Ig-V-like and Ig-C-like domains and short cytoplasmic domains. Among the family members, they share about 20‑40% amino acid (aa) sequence identity. The cloned human B7-H3 cDNA encodes a 316 aa type I membrane precursor protein with a putative 28 aa signal peptide, a 217 aa extracellular region containing one V-like and one C-like Ig domain, a transmembrane region, and a 45 aa cytoplasmic domain. An isoform of human B7-H3 containing a four-Ig-like domain extracellular region has also been identified. Human B7-H3 is not expressed on resting B cells, T cells, monocytes or dendritic cells, but is induced on dendritic cells and monocytes by inflammatory cytokines. B7-H3 expression is also detected on various normal tissues and in some tumor cell lines. Human B7-H3 does not bind any known members of the CD28 family of immunoreceptors. However, B7-H3 has been shown to bind an unidentified counter-receptor on activated T cells to costimulate the proliferation of CD4+ or CD8+ T cells. B7-H3 has also been found to enhance the induction of primary cytotoxic T lymphocytes and stimulate IFN-gamma production (1‑3).
