Background: B7-H3

Cynomolgus Monkey B7 homolog 3 (B7-H3), also known as CD276 antigen, is a member of the B7 family of immune proteins that provide signals for the regulation of immune responses (1-3). Other family members include B7-1, B7-2, B7-H1/PD-L1, B7-H2, and PD-L2. B7 family proteins are type I transmembrane immunoglobulin (Ig) superfamily members that contain extracellular Ig V‑like and Ig C-like domains with a short cytoplasmic tail. Among the family members there is about
20‑40% amino acid (aa) sequence identity. Cynomolgus monkey B7-H3 shares approximately 97% and 88% aa sequence identity with human and mouse B7-H3 respectively. B7-H3 mRNA is found in various normal tissues and in several tumor cell lines, but is not detectable in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs). Inflammatory cytokines, such as IFN gamma, and a combination of phorbol myristate acetate (PMA) and ionomycin induce expression of B7-H3 protein on dendritic cells (DCs) and monocytes (4). The receptor(s) for B7-H3 remains unknown. Both murine and human B7-H3 fusion proteins fail to bind to resting T cells, but can recognize activated T cells which stimulated with PHA or ConA, indicating that B7-H3 receptors are induced upon T cell activation (5). B7-H3 was reported to act as a
co-stimulatory regulator to enhance the proliferation of both CD4+ and CD8+ T cells, the induction of cytotoxic T cells, and IFN-gamma production in the presence of TCR signaling (1). B7‑H3 was also reported to play an inhibitory role on T-cell activation. The inhibition may govern through nuclear factor of activated T cells (NFAT),
NF‑ kappaB, and AP-1 factors, three major signaling pathways through which TCR regulates gene transcription, which suggesting that B7‑H3 might have more than one receptor on T cells (6). B7-H3 protein expresses on a wide variety of cancers, including stomach, lung, prostate, kidney, ovary, pancreas, liver, bladder and breast. The role of B7-H3 in anti-tumor immunity is controversial, because B7-H3 has conflicting costimulatory and coinhibitory functions (7).
