B7-2 (CD86) is an important costimulatory molecule for the priming and activation of naive and memory T cells, respectively. Soluble CD86 is produced by resting monocytes and results from an alternatively spliced transcript (CD86deltaTM) characterized by deletion of the transmembrane domain (1). Engagement of CD28 with B7-1 and B7-2 ligands on antigen-presenting cells (APCs) provides a stimulatory signal for T-cell activation, whereas subsequent engagement of CTLA-4 with these same ligands results in attenuation of the response. Given their central function in immune modulation, CTLA-4- and CD28-associated signaling pathways are primary therapeutic targets for preventing autoimmune disease, graft versus host disease, graft rejection and promoting tumor immunity (2). It has also been shown that on B cells and macrophages, heat shock proteins GroES and GroEL both stimulated the expression of B7-2 (3)
