|Vista in Placenta Tissue
Vista is a molecule that regulates T lymphocytes and plays an important role in immunity. Understanding more about Vista's functional role could help researchers develop immunotherapy approaches to the management of human cancer. This image shows a section of placenta tissue, specifically the cells that line villi of placenta. The yellow color represents the presence of Vista protein; red represents the presence of CD8 protein; blue represents the cell nucleus. This assay shows that the Vista molecule is positively present in cells of the placenta, indicating that placenta can be used as control tissue for immune fluorescent staining assay of Vista in cancer research studies.
