Product Details

The 8G8 monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse V-domain Ig suppressor of T cell activation (VISTA) also known as PD-1H and B7-H5. VISTA is a 309 aa type I transmembrane glycoprotein and a member of the Ig superfamily. VISTA is expressed on naïve and activated T cells, NK cells, macrophages, dendritic cells, and neutrophils. VISTA functions as a negative immune-checkpoint protein that suppresses T cell cytokine production and proliferation. VISTA is overexpressed by tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes, such as myeloid cells and regulatory T cells. The 8G8 antibody is an agonistic antibody and has demonstrated immunosuppressive properties in multiple murine models of inflammation and autoimmunity including lupus, hepatitis, arthritis, and psoriasis.

(2020). "VISTA is a checkpoint regulator for naïve T cell quiescence and peripheral tolerance" Science 367(6475):eaay0524. PubMed

Negative checkpoint regulators (NCRs) temper the T cell immune response to self-antigens and limit the development of autoimmunity. Unlike all other NCRs that are expressed on activated T lymphocytes, V-type immunoglobulin domain-containing suppressor of T cell activation (VISTA) is expressed on naïve T cells. We report an unexpected heterogeneity within the naïve T cell compartment in mice, where loss of VISTA disrupted the major quiescent naïve T cell subset and enhanced self-reactivity. Agonistic VISTA engagement increased T cell tolerance by promoting antigen-induced peripheral T cell deletion. Although a critical player in naïve T cell homeostasis, the ability of VISTA to restrain naïve T cell responses was lost under inflammatory conditions. VISTA is therefore a distinctive NCR of naïve T cells that is critical for steady-state maintenance of quiescence and peripheral tolerance.

"VISTA deficiency attenuates antibody-induced arthritis and alters macrophage gene expression in response to simulated immune complexes" Arthritis Res Ther 19(1):270. PubMed

In addition to activated T cells, the immune checkpoint inhibitor "V domain-containing Ig suppressor of T-cell activation" (VISTA) is expressed by myeloid cell types, including macrophages and neutrophils. The importance of VISTA expression by myeloid cells to antibody-induced arthritis and its potential for relevance in human disease was evaluated.
