Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab269455 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|WB||1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 28, 45, 65 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 31 kDa).|
FunctionNegatively regulates T-cell-mediated immune response by inhibiting T-cell activation, proliferation, cytokine production and development of cytotoxicity. When expressed on the cell surface of tumor macrophages, plays an important role, together with regulatory T-cells (Treg), in the suppression of tumor-associated antigen-specific T-cell immunity. Involved in promoting epithelial cell transformation.
Tissue specificityOverexpressed in breast, ovarian, endometrial, renal cell (RCC) and non-small-cell lung cancers (NSCLC). Expressed on activated T- and B-cells, monocytes and dendritic cells, but not expressed in most normal tissues (at protein level). Widely expressed, including in kidney, liver, lung, ovary, placenta, spleen and testis.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the immunoglobulin superfamily. BTN/MOG family.
Contains 2 Ig-like V-type (immunoglobulin-like) domains.
Cellular localizationCell membrane. Expressed at the cell surface. A soluble form has also been detected.

B7H4 is N-glycosylated protein. The level of B7H4 glycosylation varies between different cells and tissues. The bands at 65kDa and 45kDa represent glycosylated B7H4. The band at 28kDa represents non-glycosylated B7H4. (PMID: 15878339).
Negative control: HT-29 and HeLa. (PMID: 15878339).
B7H4 was immunoprecipitated from 0.35 mg SK-BR-3 (Human breast adenocarcinoma epithelial cell) whole cell lysate with ab269455 at 1/30 dilution (2ug in 0.35mg lysates). Western blot was performed on the immunoprecipitate using ab269455 at 1/1000 dilution. VeriBlot for IP Detection Reagent (HRP) (ab131366) was used at 1/5000 dilution.

Flow cytometric analysis of 2% paraformaldehyde fixed 0.1% Tween-20 permeabilized HEK-293T (human embryonic kidney epithelial cell) transfected with myc-tagged B7-H4 expression vector cells labelling B7H4 with ab269455 at 1/60 dilution (Right) compared with a Rabbit monoclonal IgG (ab172730) isotype control (Left). PMID: 23722540 and PMID: 27632942 showed that cell surface expression of B7-H4 hard to detected in vitro cultured cell lines, and all the commercial B7H4 antibodies that recommend FC as an application use the overexpression system. Our RabMab also could recognise overexpressed B7H4.The overexpression plasmid contains the full length aa1-282 of human B7H4(Q7Z7D3) with HA tag in pcDNA3.1(+) vector.
Cells were surface stained with rabbit IgG (Left) or ab269455 (Right). Then fixed with 2% PFA followed by intracellularly stained with anti-HA tag conjugated to Alexa Fluor® 647.
Immunofluorescent analysis of 4% Paraformaldehyde-fixed, 0.1% Triton X-100 permeabilized HEK-293T (human embryonic kidney epithelial cell) cells labelling B7H4 with ab269455 at 1/500 dilution, followed by ab150077 AlexaFluor®488 Goat anti-Rabbit secondary antibody at 1/1000 dilution (Green). Confocal image showing cytoplasmic and membranous staining in HEK-293T cell line transfected with a HA-tagged B7-H4 expression vector. Alexa Fluor® 647 anti-HA.11 Epitope Tag Antibody was used at 200 dilution to detecte the overexpressed protein (Red). The nuclear counterstain was DAPI (Blue).
Secondary antibody only control: Secondary antibody is ab150077 AlexaFluo®488 Goat anti-Rabbit secondary at 1/1000 dilution.
