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

Images

  • Immunostaining of formalin fixed paraffin embedded human microtissues after exposure to MTX, TAA and TGF-β1.

    Formalin fixed paraffin embedded slides of HepaRG/THP-1 macrophages/hTERT-HSC microtissues were stained with Hematoxylin & Eosin (H&E) and vimentin after 14 days of treatment with MTX, TAA and TGF-β1. Microtissues were fixed in 4% PFA and embedded in 2% agarose prior to paraffinization. Microtissues showed increase in the vimentin positive cells after MTX, TAA and TGF-β1 exposure. Vimentin stainings show proliferation of stellate cells and THP-1 macrophages in the microtissues, suggesting the onset of inflammation process.

  • JhylacZ/lacZ mice exhibit delayed radial glial to ependymal cell differentiation.

    Immunohistochemical analysis of P10 lateral ventricle coronal sections from Jhy+/+ (A, E) and JhylacZ/lacZ (I, M) mice for expression of Vimentin (pink, ab92547), Glast (green) and Acα-Tub (orange) in dorsal (A-D, I-L) and ventral (E-H, M-P) brain regions. Lower right panels (D, L, H, P) represent a higher magnification view of the merged image. In Jhy+/+, medial wall dorsal and ventral cells express the differentiated ependymal markers Vimentin (A, B, E, F) and Acα-Tub (A, D, E, H), but are negative for the radial glial marker Glast (A, C, E, G). In JhylacZ/lacZ brains, some dorsal cells remain positive for the undifferentiated marker Glast (I, K), while also expressing the differentiated markers Vimentin and Acα-Tub (I, J, L). JhylacZ/lacZ ventral cells express only Vimentin and Acα-Tub (M-P). The dotted line indicates the medial wall ependymal cells in (C, G, K, O). (Q-R) Graphical representation of the percentage of Glast(-)Vimentin(+)Acα-Tub(+) (black bar) and Glast(+)Vimentin(+)Acα-Tub(+) (grey bar) cells in dorsal (Q) and ventral (R) ependymal cells. MW, medial wall; LW, lateral wall; LV, lateral ventricle; * denotes p≤0.05. Scale bars: 50μm (A-P).

    IHC image of unpurified ab92547 staining Vimentin in human breast adenocarcinoma formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue sections*, performed on a Leica Bond. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab92547, 1/200 dilution, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX. No primary antibody was used in the negative control (shown on the inset).

    For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.
