Detection of VISTA/B7-H5/PD-1H in Human PBMCs by Flow Cytometry. Human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) were stained with Mouse Anti-Human CD11b/Integrin alpha M APC‑conjugated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # FAB16991A) and either (A) Sheep Anti-Human VISTA/B7-H5/PD-1H Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF7126) or (B) Normal Sheep IgG Control (Catalog # 5-001-A) followed by Phycoerythrin-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # F0126).

Platelet Receptor Gi24, also known as VISTA (V-domain Ig suppressor of T cell activation), B7-H5, B7H5, Dies1 (Differentiation of ESC-1), 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, VISTA appears to positively interact with BMP-4, potentiating BMP signaling and the transition from an undifferentiated to a differentiated state. On tumor cells, VISTA both promotes MT1-MMP expression and activity and serves as a substrate for MT1-MMP. This increases the potential for cell motility. Mature human VISTA contains a 162 aa extracellular region with one V-type Ig-like domain and a 96 aa cytoplasmic domain. Human VISTA 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 VISTA shares 70% and 67% aa identity with mouse and rat Gi24, respectively.
