T cells require a signal induced by the engagement of the T cell receptor and a “costimulatory” signal(s) through distinct T cell surface molecules for optimal T cell expansion and activation. Members of the B7 superfamily of counter-receptors were identified by their ability to interact with costimulatory molecules found on the surface of T cells. Members of the B7 superfamily include B7-1 (CD80), B7-2 (CD86), B7-H1 (PD-L1), B7-H2 (B7RP-1), B7-H3, and PD-L2 (1). B7-H3 is expressed at very high levels in immature dendritic cells at moderate levels on mature dendritic cells, LPS stimulated immature dendritic cells and LPS stimulated monocytes, and at low levels on resting monocytes. B7-H3 binds to activated T cells via an as-of-yet identified receptor. B7-H3 co-stimulates proliferation of T cells and interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma) production and enhances the induction of cytotoxic T cells. B7-H3 shares 20 - 27% amino acid (aa) identity with other B7 family members (2). Murine B7-H3 is a 259 aa protein containing an extracellular domain, a transmembrane domain and a cytoplasmic domain. Mouse and human B7-H3 share 87% aa identity (3).
