Mouse Platelet receptor Gi24(VISTA) is a transmembrane glycoprotein with homology to B7like immune costimulatory molecules. Mature mouse Gi24 contains a 159 amino acid (aa) extracellular domain (ECD) with one V-type Ig-like domain, a 21 aa transmembrane segment, and a 97 aa cytoplasmic domain. VISTA promotes both MT1-MMP expression and the MT1-MMP mediated activation of MMP-2. It supports the differentiation of embryonic stem cells (ESC) and enhances BMP-4 induced signaling in ESC, but it is also down-regulated following BMP-4 exposure. It binds to BMP-4 directly and also associates with the type I BMP receptor Activin RIB/ALK-4. It is expressed on the surface of na?ve CD4+ T cells and regulatory T cells. It is up-regulated in vivo on activated monocytes and dendritic cells. VISTA inhibits CD4+ and CD8+ T cell proliferation and their production of IL-2 and IFN-γ. Its expression on tumor cells attenuates the antitumor immune response and enables more rapid tumor progression.
Recombinant Mouse Platelet receptor Gi24 is produced by our Mammalian expression system and the target gene encoding Phe33-Ala191 is expressed with a 6His tag at the C-terminus.
