Targeting vimentin for cancer therapy

Study vimentin using a flexible product offering tailored to your research requirements.

A major contributor to metastasis is the process of epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT). Vimentin is a canonical marker of the EMT process and a clinical marker of metastasis. It’s overexpression in epithelial cancers including lung, prostate and breast makes it an attractive target for cancer therapy1,2.
