Background: B7-H3

Human B7 homolog 3 (B7-H3), also known as CD276, is a member of the B7 family of immune checkpoint molecules, responsible for regulating immune responses (1‑3). There are at least seven structurally related B7 family members, all sharing about 20-40% amino acid (aa) sequence identity (4). The B7 protein family are immunoglobulin (Ig) superfamily members with varying numbers of Ig-V-like and Ig-C-like regions in the extracellular domain (ECD) and they can either be glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-linked or transmembrane (4). The mature ECD of B7-H3 contains two V-like and two C-like Ig domains, a transmembrane region, and a short cytoplasmic domain. An isoform of human B7-H3 containing only a single set of V-like and C-like Ig domains in the ECD has also been identified (1, 5). The ECD of both mouse and rat B7-H3 only contain a single set of V-like and C-like Ig domains. 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 (1, 6). B7-H3 is also overexpressed in numerous cancers including bladder, breast and melanoma (7). Unlike other B7 family members, human B7-H3 does not bind any known members of the CD28 family of immunoreceptors and its receptor has yet to be identified. 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 (8). B7-H3 has also been found to enhance the induction of primary cytotoxic T lymphocytes and stimulate IFN-gamma production (1-3, 8).
