Human B7-H2, His Tag (B72-H5221) is expressed from human 293 cells (HEK293). It contains AA Asp 19 - Ser 258 (Accession # NP_056074).
Predicted N-terminus: Asp 19
This protein carries a polyhistidine tag at the C-terminus.
The protein has a calculated MW of 27.8 kDa. The protein migrates as 45-67 kDa under reducing (R) condition (SDS-PAGE) due to glycosylation.
Less than 1.0 EU per μg by the LAL method.
>95% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Lyophilized from 0.22 μm filtered solution in PBS, pH7.4. Normally trehalose is added as protectant before lyophilization.

Immobilized Human ICOS, Fc Tag (Cat. No. ICS-H5258) at 1 μg/mL (100 μL/well) can bind Human B7-H2, His Tag (Cat. No. B72-H5221) with a linear range of 5-78 ng/mL (QC tested).
ICOS ligand (ICOSLG) is also known as B7 homolog 2 (B7-H2), B7-related protein 1 (B7RP-1) and CD antigen CD275, which belongs to the immunoglobulin superfamily and BTN/MOG family. ICOSLG contains one Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domain and one Ig-like V-type (immunoglobulin-like) domain. Isoform 1 is widely expressed, while isoform 2 is detected only in lymph nodes, leukocytes and spleen. B7-H2 is ligand for the T-cell-specific cell surface receptor ICOS. B7-H2 acts as a costimulatory signal for T-cell proliferation and cytokine secretion and induces also B-cell proliferation and differentiation into plasma cells. B7-H2 could play an important role in mediating local tissue responses to inflammatory conditions, as well as in modulating the secondary immune response by co-stimulating memory T-cell function.
