mRNA expression analysis

Strain specific analysis of B7-H3 gene expression in WT and B-hB7-H3 mice by RT-PCR. Mouse B7-h3 mRNA was detectable in splenocytes of wild-type (+/+) mice. Human B7-H3 mRNA was detectable only in H/H, but not in +/+ mice.

Strain specific analysis of B7-H3 gene expression in WT and B-hB7-H3 mice by RT-qPCR. Bone marrow were collected from WT mice and homozygous B-hB7-H3 (H/H) mice and stimulated with GM-CSF and IL4 for 7 days, and then stimulated with 10 μg/mL LPS for 24 h. The expression of hB7-H3 in B-hB7-H3 (H/H) was similar to that of mB7-H3 in the C57BL/6 (+/+) mice at mRNA level.

Protein expression analysis

Strain specific analysis of B7-H3 protein expression in WT and B-hB7-H3 mice by western blot. Epididymis were collected from WT (+/+) mice and homozygous B-hB7-H3 (H/H) mice. Mouse B7-H3 was detectable in WT. Human B7-H3 was detectable in the epididymis of B-hB7-H3 (H/H) mice due to the cross-reactivity of antibodies.

Analysis of spleen leukocyte subpopulations in B-hB7-H3 mice

Analysis of spleen leukocyte subpopulations by FACS
Splenocytes were isolated from female C57BL/6 and B-hB7-H3 mice (n=3, 6 weeks-old) and analyzed by flow cytometry to assess leukocyte subpopulations. (A) Representative FACS plots gated on single live CD45+ cells for further analysis. (B) Results of FACS analysis. Percentages of T, B, NK cells, monocyte/macrophages, and DC were similar in homozygous B-hB7-H3 mice and C57BL/6 mice, demonstrating that introduction of hB7-H3 in place of its mouse counterpart does not change the overall development, differentiation, or distribution of these cell types in spleen. Values are expressed as mean ± SEM.
