Description: The HK5.3 monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse B7RP-1, also known as B7h, B7-H2, GL50 and ICOS Ligand. B7RP-1, a member of the B7 family, has a predicted molecular weight of ~40 kDa and belongs to the Ig superfamily. Mouse B7RP-1 is expressed by antigen presenting cells including B cells, monocytes/macrophages and dendritic cells. B7RP-1 binds to the ICOS molecule (AILIM, CRP-1) expressed by activated T cells. The interaction of ICOS/B7RP-1 plays an important role in the T cell costimulation pathway.
Applications Reported: The HK5.3 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: The HK5.3 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of mouse splenocytes. This can be used at less than or equal to 0.125 µg per test. A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.

Inducible co-stimulator ligand (ICOSL) is a specific ligand on antigen-presenting cells and cells of the peripheral tissue that binds to the inducible co-stimulator receptor (ICOS). ICOS belongs to the CD28/CD152 receptor family that regulates T-cell activation and function. ICOSL is expressed on monocytes, dendritic cells and B cells and can be induced by inflammatory stimuli in peripheral tissue. Binding to ICOSL delivers a co-stimulatory signal for T cell proliferation and cytokine secretion.
