Detection of Mouse VISTA/B7-H5/PD-1H by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of mouse placenta tissue, mouse spleen tissue, mouse lung tissue, and mouse platelets. PVDF membrane was probed with 0.5 µg/mL of Rat Anti-Mouse VISTA/B7-H5/ PD-1H Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB70051) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Rat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF005). A specific band was detected for VISTA/B7-H5/PD-1H at approximately 30 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
VISTA/B7-H5/PD-1H in D3 Mouse Stem Cells. VISTA/B7-H5/PD-1H was detected in immersion fixed D3 mouse embryonic stem cell line using Rat Anti-Mouse VISTA/B7-H5/PD-1H Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB70051) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Rat IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL013) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm and cell surfaces. View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Cells on Coverslips.

Platelet Receptor Gi24, also known as VISTA, 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, Gi24 appears to positively interact with BMP4, 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 mouse Gi24 is a 277 amino acid (aa) type I transmembrane glycoprotein (aa 33-309). It contains a 149 aa extracellular region (aa 33-191) with one V-type Ig-like domain (aa 33-161) and a 97 aa cytoplasmic domain. Based on human Gi24, mouse Gi24 will likely undergo proteolytic cleavage by MT1-MMP, generating a soluble 30 kDa extracellular fragment, plus a 25-30 kDa membrane-bound fragment. There are two potential isoform variants. One contains a deletion of aa 127-187, while another shows an alternative start site at Met82. Over aa 33-191, mouse Gi24/Dies1 shares 78% and 70% aa identity with rat and human Gi24, respectively.
