Anti-ICOS ligand Antibody (FITC) (Mouse Monoclonal antibody) General Information
Anti-ICOS ligand Antibody (FITC)
Reacts with: Human
Human ICOS ligand
Recombinant Human ICOS Ligand / B7-H2 protein (Catalog#11559-H08H)
This antibody was produced from a hybridoma resulting from the fusion of a mouse myeloma with B cells obtained from a mouse immunized with purified, recombinant Human ICOS Ligand / B7-H2 (rh ICOS Ligand / B7-H2; Catalog#11559-H08H; NP_056074.1; Met1-Ser258) and conjugated with FITC under optimum conditions, the unreacted FITC was removed.

Inducible co-stimulator ligand (ICOSL), also known as B7-H2, is a member of the B7 family of co-stimulatory molecules related to B7-1 and B7-2. It is a transmembrane glycoprotein with extracellular IgV and IgC domains, and binds to ICOS on activated T cells, thus delivers a positive costimulatory signal for optimal T cell function. The structural features of ICOSL are crucial for its costimulatory function. Present study shows that ICOSL displays a marked oligomerization potential, resembling more like B7-1 than B7-2. B7-H2-dependent signaling may play an active role in a proliferative response rather than in cytokine and chemokine production. The CD28/B7 and ICOS/B7-H2 pathways are both critical for costimulating T cell immune responses. Deficiency in either pathway results in defective T cell activation, cytokine production and germinal center formation.
