A costimulatory signal involved in T cell activation is transmitted by CD28. This signal is delivered by the interaction of the CD28 receptor on T cells with its ligand B7-1 on the antigen-presenting cell and modulates T cell antigen recognition. Despite the homodimeric structure of CD28, it interacts with B7-1 as though it has a single binding site. The V-like domains of CD28 contains a strictly conserved MYPPPY sequence motif that maps to the CDR3-analogous loop and is critical for recognition of its ligands. B7-1 and B7-2 bind to overlapping but not identical sites on CD28
