Detection of Human and Mouse VISTA/B7-H5/PD-1H by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of SH-SY5Y human neuroblastoma cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human/Mouse VISTA/B7-H5/PD-1H Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB7126) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). A specific band was detected for Gi24/VISTA/B7‑H5 at approximately 30 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Platelet Receptor Gi24, also known as Dies1 (Differentiation of ESC-1), VISTA (V-domain Ig suppressor of T cell activation), B7-H5, SISP1, and C10orf54, is a 55-65 kDa member of the Ig superfamily. It is a transmembrane molecule expressed in bone, on embryonic stem cells (ESCs), and on tumor cell surfaces. On ESCs, Gi24 appears to positively interact with BMP-4, potentiating BMP signaling and the transition from an undifferentiated to a differentiated state. On tumor cells, Gi24 both promotes MT1-MMP expression and activity and serves as a substrate for MT1-MMP. This increases the potential for cell motility. Mature human Gi24 contains a 162 aa extracellular region with one V-type Ig-like domain and a 96 aa cytoplasmic domain. Human Gi24 undergoes proteolytic cleavage by MT1-MMP, generating a soluble 30 kDa extracellular fragment plus a 25-30 kDa membrane-bound fragment. Over aa 33-194, human Gi24 shares 70% and 67% aa identity with mouse and rat Gi24, respectively.
