Descrição geral

Anti-Vimentin antibody, Mouse monoclonal (mouse IgM isotype) is derived from the LN-6 hybridoma produced by the fusion of mouse myeloma cells and splenocytes from mouse. Vimentin protein is localized in a wide range of cell types, including pancreatic precursor cells, sertoli cells, mesangial cells, trophoblastic giant cells, neuronal precursor cells, fibroblasts, macrophages, endothelial cells of lung blood vessels, renal tubular cells, neutrophils, leukocytes and renal stromal cells.
Vimentin is a specific type III intermediate filament (IF) protein. It is abundantly expressed in mesenchymal cells. The gene encoding vimentin is located on human chromosome 10p13.


Anti-Vimentin antibody, Mouse monoclonal specifically recognizes a unique epitope of Vimentin protein which is not expressed in cells of hematopoetic derivation. The antibody is reactive with benign and malignant tumors of mesenchymal and neural derivation but does not react with normal and malignanat human lymphoid cells or derived malignancies. The antibody reacts with Vimentin from human, hamster, mouse, rat, canine, monkey, bovine, porcine and rabbit origin.

Ações bioquímicas/fisiológicas

Vimentin helps to preserve the structure of cells and stability of tissue in mesenchymal cells. It is involved in tumorigenesis, EMT (epithelial mesenchymal transition) and the metastatic of cancer. It also controls infectious internalization of human papillomavirus 16 pseudovirions.
Vimentin protein plays a significant role in supporting and anchoring the cellular position of organelles such as the nucleus, endoplasmic reticulum, mitochondria, maintenance of cell shape, the endurance of mechanical stress of mesenchymal cells and motility. Overexpression of the vimentin gene is observed in various epithelial cancers, including prostate, gastrointestinal tumors, central nervous system (CNS) tumors, breast, malignant melanoma and lung cancer.

forma física

Solution in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 15 mM sodium azide

Armazenamento e estabilidade

For continuous use, store at 2–8 °C for up to one month. For extended storage, freeze in working aliquots. Repeated freezing and thawing is not recommended. If slight turbidity occurs upon prolonged storage, clarify the solution by centrifugation before use. Working dilution samples should be discarded if not used within 12 hours.
