General description

Vimentin is one of the five major groups of intermediate filaments with a molecular mass of 57 kDa. Intermediate filaments (IFs) with characteristic 10 nm diameter are a distinct class of molecularly heterogenous cytoskeletal filaments defined by ultrastructural, immunological and biochemical criteria. IFs differ significantly from the other cytoskeletal elements of the cell, namely microtubules and microfilaments and are components of most eukaryotic cells.


The antibody localizes vimentin in fibroblasts, endothelial cells, lymphoid tissue and melanocytes in immunohistochemical staining. It also stains vimentin in sarcomas, lymphomas, and melanomas.

Cy3 Monoclonal Anti-Vimentin may be used:
• to study the expression of vimentin in cultured cells
• for immunohistochemistry and immunocytochemistry
• for double labeling experiments with fluorescein tagged antibodies
• in testing the adequacy of tissue fixation and for monitoring the recovery from over fixation achieved by antigen retrieval methodologies
• for western blotting

Physical form

Solution in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 1% bovine serum albumin and 15 mM sodium azide

Storage and Stability

Store at 2-8 °C. Protect from prolonged exposure to light. If slight turbidity occurs upon prolonged storage, clarify the solution by centrifugation before use.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Vimentin was found to be important for stabilizing the architecture of the cytoplasm. It was found, that activated macrophages secrete vimentin into the extracellular space in vitro.
