Target

  • Function
    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.
  • 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.
  • Involvement in disease
    Cataract 30
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the intermediate filament family.
  • Domain
    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.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    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.
  • Cellular localization

  • Information by UniProt
  • Database links
  • Form
    Vimentin is found in connective tissue and in the cytoskeleton.

Answer


Unfortunately, if we do not have a link on the datasheet towards a smaller size (which is actually quite rare), then we cannot offer you a different size than the one we have in our catalog.

Answer

Thank you for your enquiry and your interest in our products.

I can confirm that both antibodies have been tested for cross-reaction with rat so they recognize this species. However, neither of them have been specifically used on rat hear tissue sections.

It would be worth checking some published papers using PubMed if F4/80 and Vimentin are widely used as good markers for investigating fibrosis on heart tissue. If these proteins are expressed at detectable levels, then ab74383 and ab137321 can be used in this study.

If you need any further assistance in the future, please do not hesitate to contact me.
