Mouse monoclonal Vimentin antibody (FITC).
Biological Significance: Vimentin is a member of the intermediate filament family of proteins that is especially found in connective tissue. Intermediate filaments are an important structural feature of eukaryotic cells. They, along with microtubules and actin microfilaments, make up the cytoskeleton. Although most intermediate filaments are stable structures, in fibroblasts, vimentin exists as a dynamic structure. This filament is used as a marker for mesodermally derived tissues, and as such can be used as an immunohistochemical marker for sarcomas. Tag/Conjugate: FITC
Immunogen: Vimentin antibody (FITC) was raised in mouse using vimentin purified from bovine lens as the immunogen. In general, we may offer more than one antibody to a given target to enable options for the researcher. Available antibodies recognizing VIM are readily searchable from our website. Different antibodies against the same target such as VIM may be optimized or tested for different applications and species. This enables researchers to select the option that may be best for their model system, to screen more than antibody to determine which one may be best for their model system, as well as to use more than one antibody to follow up on and validate their results. The following patways have been known to be associated with this gene. Breast Neoplasms, Disease Models, Animal, Fibrosis, Hemorrhage, Inflammation, Kidney Diseases, Liver Diseases, Neoplasm Metastasis, Nervous System Diseases, Neurodegenerative Diseases are some of the diseases may be linked to Vimentin antibody (FITC). Blood, Bone, Bone Marrow, Brain, Eye, Kidney, Liver, Lung, Muscle, Nerve tissues are correlated with this protein.
