General description

The vinculin (VCL) gene containing 22 exons is mapped to human chromosome 10q22.1-q23. The gene codes for a 117kDa cytoskeletal protein present in adherens type cell junctions. VCL is a ubiquitously expressed cell-adhesion protein. The protein is characterized with a globular head and a tail domain, which are interconnected by a short proline-rich sequence, an intramolecular interaction between the head and tail conceal many ligand-binding sites in the protein.


The antibody reacts best with cultured chicken fibroblasts. Labeling also may be obtained with bovine, human, or mouse cells.


Monoclonal Anti-Vinculin antibody produced in mouse has been used in:
• western blotting.
• immunofluorescence.
• immunocytochemistry.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Vinculin (VCL) is a cytoskeletal protein, which plays a vital role in regulation of cell-to-cell and cell to matrix junctions. VCL facilitates normal embryonic development and cardiac function. Aberration or mutation of the gene leads to cardiomyopathy. VCL also plays a crucial role in cell migration and morphogenesis. VCL might facilitate the binding of integrins and cadherins to the actin cytoskeleton. Vinculin plays an important role in integrin αIIbβ3 signaling and function, which is required for platelet aggregation.
