Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab11256 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

应用 Ab评论 说明
ICC/IF Use at an assay dependent concentration.
IHC-P 1/20. Localizes vimentin in fibroblasts, endothelial cells, lymphoid tissues and melanocytes, as well as tumors derived from these cells including sarcomas, lymphomas, melanomas, and their metastatic lesions.
IHC-Fr 1/20.
WB 1/50. Detects a band of approximately 58 kDa.

The antibody specifically stains the vimentin band using total cell or tissue extracts.

ICC Use at an assay dependent concentration. On normal and pathological tissue of mesenchymal derivation.


  • 功能Vimentins are class-III intermediate filaments found in various non-epithelial cells, especially mesenchymal cells. Vimentin is attached to the nucleus, endoplasmic reticulum, and mitochondria, either laterally or terminally.
    Involved with LARP6 in the stabilization of type I collagen mRNAs for CO1A1 and CO1A2.
  • 组织特异性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.
  • 疾病相关Cataract 30
  • 序列相似性Belongs to the intermediate filament family.
  • 结构域The central alpha-helical coiled-coil rod region mediates elementary homodimerization.
    The [IL]-x-C-x-x-[DE] motif is a proposed target motif for cysteine S-nitrosylation mediated by the iNOS-S100A8/A9 transnitrosylase complex.
  • 翻译后修饰Filament disassembly during mitosis is promoted by phosphorylation at Ser-55 as well as by nestin (By similarity). 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. Phosphorylation by PKN1 inhibits the formation of filaments. Phosphorylated at Ser-56 by CDK5 during neutrophil secretion in the cytoplasm. Phosphorylated by STK33.
    O-glycosylated during cytokinesis at sites identical or close to phosphorylation sites, this interferes with the phosphorylation status.
    S-nitrosylation is induced by interferon-gamma and oxidatively-modified low-densitity lipoprotein (LDL(ox)) possibly implicating the iNOS-S100A8/9 transnitrosylase complex.

Anti-Vimentin antibody 图像

  • ii Panels i-iii, TGF-ß1 induces EMT-type changes in primary hepatocytes. Immunofluorescence staining for E-cadherin (green) and vimentin (red) in primary hepatocytes were evaluated by confocal laser microscopy. DAPI stained nuclei blue. There was apparent near loss of cell membrane-bound E-cadherin in TGF-ß1-treated cells in a time-dependent manner. Diffuse vimentin staining was observed in control cells, and TGF-ß1-treated hepatocytes exhibited a fibrillar vimentin pattern most noted at 48 and 72 h. Also note that TGF-ß1 caused hepatocytes to assume a spindle-shaped morphology, which was not observed in controls. Scale bar, 50 µm.
  • Immunocytochemistry/ Immunofluorescence analysis of mouse sertoli cells labeling Vimentin with ab11256 at 1/20 dilution. Cells were fixed with methanol and blocked with 5% serum for 20 minutes at 25 °C. A polyclonal Donkey anti-goat Dylight® 488 was used as the secondary antibody at 1/400 dilution.
