    Stability testing for mouse VISTA. Mouse VISTA was aliquoted in PBS at 0.2 mg/ml; one aliquot was kept at 4°C (control) and another was freeze-thawed four times (4x freeze-thaws). After this procedure, the samples were tested by inhibition of anti CD3-induced proliferation of human activated T cells.

VISTA, V-domain Ig suppressor of T cell activation, suppresses T cell activation, was initially identified by affymetrix analysis of activated versus resting mouse CD25+ CD4+ natural Treg cells. Mouse Vista is a type I transmembrane protein with a single extracellular IgV domain, it is 309 amino acids (aa) long, contains a 32-aa signal peptide, an extracellular IgV domain, stalk region, 20-aa transmembrane domain, and 96-aa cytoplasmic tail. VISTA shares significant sequence homology with the B7 family ligands PD-L1 and PD-L2. VISTA is predominantly expressed in hematopoietic tissues, highly expressed in human placenta, which may be indicative of a functional role for VISTA in allofetal tolerance. Flow cytometry shows that human VISTA is expressed in subsets of CD11bhi blood monocytes, dendritic cells, about 20% of CD4 and CD8 T cells with low density, and CD66b+ neutrophils at an intermediate intensity. VISTA serves both as a ligand (for antigen presenting cells) and as a receptor (for T cells).  B7-H5 expressing on APCs or soluble B7-H5-Ig fusion proteins inhibit T cell proliferation and cytokine production in vitro; also, inhibits the expression of the T cell activation markers CD44 and CD69. In murine tumor models, anti-VISTA monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) prime to an increased number and elevated function of intratumoral T cells and in that way boost antitumor immunity. VISTA is negative checkpoint regulator and a promising target for cancer immunotherapy.

Product Details

Mouse B7-H5 amino acids (Phe33 - Ala191) (Accession # Q9D659) was expressed in 293E cells. The carboxy terminus contains SRIEGR-Fc-6His tag.
Molecular Mass
The 404 amino acid recombinant protein has a predicted molecular mass of approximately 45.4 kD. The DTT-reduced and non-reduced protein migrate at approximately 65 kD and 120 kD respectively by SDS-PAGE. The predicted N-terminal amino acid is Phe.
> 95% by SDS-PAGE gel as determined by Coomassie stained SDS-PAGE.
0.22 µm filtered protein solution is in PBS pH 7.2.
Endotoxin Level
Less than 0.1 EU per µg cytokine as determined by the LAL method.
10 and 25 µg sizes are bottled at 200 µg/mL. 100 µg and higher sizes are lot-specific and bottled at the concentration indicated on the vial.
Storage & Handling
Unopened vial can be stored between 2°C and 8°C for one month, at -20°C for six months, or at -70°C for one year. For maximum results, quick spin vial prior to opening. The protein can be aliquoted and stored at -20°C to -70°C. Stock solutions can also be prepared at 50 - 100 µg/mL in sterile buffer (PBS, HPBS, DPBS, or EBSS) containing carrier protein such as 0.2 – 1.0% BSA or HSA and stored in working aliquots at -20°C to -70°C. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.
Mouse recombinant VISTA inhibits the anti CD3 (Cat. No. 317303)-induced proliferation of activated human T cells; the inhibitory effect was measured using Deep Blue Cell Viability™ Kit (Cat. No. 424701). The ED50 = 0.5 - 2.5 µg/mL.


Application Notes

BioLegend carrier-free recombinant proteins provided in liquid format are shipped on blue-ice. Our comparison testing data indicates that when handled and stored as recommended, the liquid format has equal or better stability and shelf-life compared to commercially available lyophilized proteins after reconstitution. Our liquid proteins are validated in-house to maintain activity after shipping on blue ice and are backed by our 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you have any concerns, contact us at

Related FAQs

Does specific activity of a recombinant protein vary between lots?

Specific activity will vary for each lot and for the type of experiment that is done to validate it, but all passed lots will have activity within the established ED50 range for the product and we guarantee that our products will have lot-to-lot consistency. Please conduct an experiment-specific validation to find the optimal ED50 for your system.

Have your recombinants been tested for stability?

Our testing shows that the recombinant proteins are able to withstand room temperature for a week without losing activity. In addition the recombinant proteins were also found to withstand four cycles of freeze and thaw without losing activity.

How do you convert activity as an ED50 in ng/ml to a specific activity in Units/mg?
Use formula Specific activity (Units/mg) = 10e6/ ED50 (ng/mL)
How does the activity of your recombinant proteins compare to competitors?

We quality control each and every lot of recombinant protein. Not only do we check its bioactivity, but we also compare it against other commercially available recombinant proteins. We make sure each recombinant protein’s activity is at least as good as or better than the competition’s. In order to provide you with the best possible product, we ensure that our testing process is rigorous and thorough. If you’re curious and eager to make the switch to BioLegend recombinants, contact your sales representative today!

What is the specific activity or ED50 of my recombinant protein?

The specific activity range of the protein is indicated on the product datasheets. Because the exact activity values on a per unit basis can largely fluctuate depending on a number of factors, including the nature of the assay, cell density, age of cells/passage number, culture media used, and end user technique, the specific activity is best defined as a range and we guarantee the specific activity of all our lots will be within the range indicated on the datasheet. Please note this only applies to recombinants labeled for use in bioassays. ELISA standard recombinant proteins are not recommended for bioassay usage as they are not tested for these applications.
