Purified Mouse Anti-Vimentin
Western blot analysis of vimentin. HeLa cell lysate was probed with anti-vimentin (clone RV202, Cat. No. 550513) at concentrations of 120 (lane 1), 60 (lane 2) and 30 ng/ml (lane 3). Vimentin is identified as a band of ~57 kDa.

Preparation And Storage

The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. Store undiluted at 4°C.

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.

Antibody Details

Intermediate filaments (IF) are a subset of cytoskeletal proteins which function to give overall structural integrity to the plasma membrane as well to organize cells into specific tissues. IF proteins can be divided into six major types based upon the similarity in sequence. Vimentin belongs to the type III category of IF proteins which are expressed in leukocytes, blood vessel endothelial cells, some epithelial cells, and mesenchymal cells. Vimentin is also expressed together with several other IF proteins during the early stages of development. Vimentin is exchanged for the tissue-specific intermediate filament type as differentiation proceeds. Vimentin migrates in SDS/PAGE as a ~57 kDa protein.

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.
