Detection of Semaphorin 4B in THP‑1 Human Cell Line by Flow Cytometry.
THP‑1 human acute monocytic leukemia cell line was stained with Goat Anti-Human Semaphorin 4B Antigen Affinity‑purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF5485, filled histogram) or isotype control antibody (Catalog # AB-108-C, open histogram), followed by Phycoerythrin-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # F0107).
Western blot shows lysates of human brain tissue. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Goat Anti-Human Semaphorin 4B Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF5485) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF019). A specific band was detected for Semaphorin 4B at approximately XXX kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 8.

Background: Semaphorin 4B
The Semaphorins make up the largest family of axon guidance cues yet described. Semaphorins are divided into 8 classes (classes 3-7 found in vertebrates). Class 3 Semaphorins are secreted, classes 4 through 6 are transmembrane proteins, and class 7 are membrane associated via glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) linkage. They are characterized structurally by a conserved ~400 amino acid sema domain. They are classically described as collapsing factors and mediators of axon repulsion, although they may also act as context-dependent chemoattractants. Semaphorins have been shown to have roles in cardiovascular development and in the regulation of immune cell antigen presentation. Receptors or receptor complexes that mediate semaphorin signaling include proteins of the Neuropilin and Plexin families.
