Description: This MIH64 monoclonal antibody recognizes mouse VISTA also known as B7-H5 or PD-H1.
This MIH64 antibody will work in flow cytometry on both native and paraformaldehyde-fixed cells.
Applications Reported: This MIH64 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This MIH64 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of mouse splenocytes. This may be used at less than or equal to 1.0 µg per test. A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.
Brilliant Ultra Violet™ 615 (BUV615) is a tandem dye that emits at 615 nm and is intended for use on cytometers equipped with an ultraviolet (355 nm) laser. Please make sure that your instrument is capable of detecting this fluorochrome.
When using two or more Super Bright, Brilliant Violet™, Brilliant Ultra Violet™, or other polymer dye-conjugated antibodies in a staining panel, it is recommended to use Super Bright Complete Staining Buffer (Product # SB-4401-42) or Brilliant Stain Buffer™ (Product # 00-4409-75) to minimize any non-specific polymer interactions. Please refer to the datasheet for Super Bright Staining Buffer or Brilliant Stain Buffer for more information.
Light sensitivity: This tandem dye is sensitive to photo-induced oxidation. Please protect this vial and stained samples from light.
Fixation: Samples can be stored in IC Fixation Buffer (Product # 00-8222-49) (100 µL of cell sample + 100 µL of IC Fixation Buffer) or 1-step Fix/Lyse Solution (Product # 00-5333-54) for up to 3 days in the dark at 4°C with minimal impact on brightness and FRET efficiency/compensation. Some generalizations regarding fluorophore performance after fixation can be made, but clone-specific performance should be determined empirically.
Excitation: 350 nm; Emission: 615 nm; Laser: Ultraviolet Laser.

VISTA (V-domain Ig containing suppressor of T-cell activation), also known as B7-H5 or PD-1H, is a product of the VSIR gene. Although VISTA bears sequence homology to PD-L1 it has a different expression pattern. In both mouse and humans, VISTA is expressed predominantly on hematopoietic cells with the highest densities on myeloid cells, and lower levels on T cells. It is usually absent on B cells. VISTA expressed by antigen presenting cells has been shown to directly suppress proliferation and cytokine production of CD4 and CD8 T cells, making it a target for cancer immunotherapy. The reported ligands of VISTA include CD28H, VSIG-3 and VSIG-8.
