Detection of CD277/BTN3A1 in Human Lymphocytes by Flow Cytometry. Human peripheral blood lymphocytes were stained with Mouse Anti-Human CD277/BTN3A1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB7136, filled histogram) or isotype control antibody (Catalog # MAB002, open histogram), followed by Allophycocyanin-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # F0101B).

Butyrophilin 3A1 (BTN3A1), also known as CD277, has high structural homology to the B7 superfamily of proteins and is expressed in various immune cells such as T and NK cells. BTN3A1 enhances TCR-induced cytokine production and cell proliferation. Early T-cell activation events such as TCR-induced cell signaling are increased upon BTN3A1 engagement. The BTN3A1 co-stimulatory pathway may be involved in the regulation of various cell-mediated immune responses.
