      • Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin)
      • Western Blotting
      Application NotesImmunohistochemistry: 1:20-1:40. Shows reactivity on frozen tissue sections as well as formalin-fixed paraffin embedded tissue by immunoperoxidase and immunofluorescent assays.


      Western blot

      Optimal working dilutions must be determined by end user.
      Biological Information
      ImmunogenVimentin purified from cultured human foreskin fibroblasts.
      ConcentrationPlease refer to the Certificate of Analysis for the lot-specific concentration.
      SpecificityRecognizes vimentin in cultured mammalian cells and tissue sections. AB1620 specifically stains the vimentin band (58 kD) using total cell or tissue extracts in immunoblotting. No reactivity to desmin, keratin, neurofilaments or glial filaments. Shows wide cross-reactivity among mammalian species using various immunolabeling techniques.

      Antibody TypePolyclonal Antibody
      Entrez Gene Number
      Entrez Gene SummaryAlong with the microfilaments (actins) and microtubules (tubulins), the intermediate filaments represent a third class of well-characterized cytoskeletal elements. The subunits display a tissue-specific pattern of expression. Desmin (MIM 125660) is the subunit specific for muscle and vimentin the subunit specific for mesenchymal tissue.[supplied by OMIM]

      Purification MethodUnpurified
      UniProt Number
      UniProt SummaryFUNCTION: SwissProt: P08670 # Vimentins are class-III intermediate filaments found in various non-epithelial cells, especially mesenchymal cells.
      SIZE: 466 amino acids; 53652 Da
      SUBUNIT: Homopolymer. Component of a complex composed at least of ACTB, AP2M1, AP2A1, AP2A2, MEGF10 and VIM. Interacts with HCV core protein.
      TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Highly expressed in fibroblasts, some expression in T- and B-lymphocytes, and little or no expression in Burkitt's lymphoma cell lines. Expressed in many hormone- independent mammary carcinoma cell lines.
      PTM: One of the most prominent phosphoproteins in various cells of mesenchymal origin. Phosphorylation is enhanced during cell division, at which time vimentin filaments are significantly reorganized.
      SIMILARITY: SwissProt: P08670 ## Belongs to the intermediate filament family.
