B7-H4 (human):Fc (human) (rec.)

Product Data

Synonyms : 

V-set Domain-containing T Cell Activation Inhibitor 1; VTCN1; 

Immune Costimulatory Protein B7-H4; T Cell Costimulatory Molecule B7x 


Host : 

CHO cell

Sequence :

The extracellular domain of human B7-H4(NP_078902.2)(Phe29-Ala258) is fused to the N-terminus of the Fc region of human IgG1.

Molecular Mass:

55 KDa (monomer)

Purity :

>98%by SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions. 

Endotoxin Content :

<60EU/mg as determined by LAL test.




Measured by the ablility to inhibit anti-CD3-induced proliferation of stimulated human T cells. 

Human T lymphocytes cultured for 72 hours with PHA were incubated for an additional 3 days 

in 96 well place coated with 500 ng/ml antiCD3 and 10 ug/ml human B7H4/Fc. 

The presence of human B7H4/Fc at 10 ug/ml inhibited anti CD3 response by 30-50%.

Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application.

B7H4 is a B7 family member that negatively regulates T cell immunity by inhibiting of T cell proliferation, cytokine production, and cell cycle progression. In vitro, B7H4 inhibits CD4+ and CD8+ T cell proliferation, cytokine production, and generation of alloreactive cytotoxic T-cells (CTLs). In vivo, blockade of endogenous B7-H4 by specific monoclonal antibody promotes T cell responses. B7-H4 ia an important negative regulator of innate immunity through growth inhibition of neutrophils. B7-H4 is expressed on some tumor cancer cells. The role of B7-H4 in tumor progression may be to transform precancerous cells and then protect them from immunosurveillance.
