Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to for technical protocols.
  3. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.

The isolated intestinal microvillus cytoskeleton (core) consists of four major proteins: actin, villin, fimbrin, and brush border myosin-I. These proteins can assemble in vitro into structures resembling native microvillus cores. Of these components, villin, and brush border myosin-I show tissue-specific expression, so they may be involved in the morphogenesis of intestinal microvilli. Found in association with the microvillar actin bundles of the intestinal brush border, villin is a 95 kDa protein composed of two very similar domains of approximately 44 kDa each, the core, and a C-terminal domain of 8 kDa, the headpiece. The core has been shown to contain villin's Ca[2+] regulated capping, nucleating, and severing activities, but it cannot induce the formation of microfilament bundles without the headpiece. Villin is a useful differentiation marker of early embryogenesis and may be useful in diagnosis and follow-up of colorectal cancers. It has been demonstrated that villin is necessary for both the cytoskeletal and membrane protein organization of a functional brush border.

This antibody is routinely tested by western blot analysis. Other applications were tested at BD Biosciences Pharmingen during antibody development only or reported in the literature.

Format Details
Down Arrow Up Arrow
Tissue culture supernatant is purified by either protein A/G or affinity purification methods. Both methods yield antibody in solution that is free of most other soluble proteins, lipids, etc. This format provides pure antibody that is suitable for a number of downstream applications including: secondary labeling for flow cytometry or microscopy, ELISA, Western blot, etc.
