VISTA Information: VISTA Protein, VISTA Antibody and VISTA Gene

VISTA Gene family

VISTA Protein

VISTA protein function

Immunoregulatory receptor which inhibits the T-cell response (PubMed:24691993). May promote differentiation of embryonic stem cells, by inhibiting BMP4 signaling (By similarity). May stimulate MMP14-mediated MMP2 activation (PubMed:20666777). {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:Q9D659, ECO:0000269|PubMed:20666777, ECO:0000269|PubMed:24691993}.

VISTA protein expression

Tissue specificity

Expressed in spleen. Detected on a number of myeloid cells including CD11b monocytes, CD66b+ neutrophils, at low levels on CD4+ and CD8+ T-cells, and in a subset of NK cells. Not detected on B cells (at protein level). Expressed at high levels in placenta, spleen, plasma blood leukocytes, and lung. Expressed at moderate levels in lymph node, bone marrow, fat, uterus, and trachea. Has low expression levels in other tissues.
