Related Product Information for anti-VIM antibody

   Intermediate filaments (IFs), along with microfilaments and microtubules, are the three major filament systems that form the architectural basis of most eukaryotic cells. Vimentin, with a molecular weight of 58 kDa, is a Type III intermediate filament found in cells of mesenchymal origin including endothelial cells, megakaryocytes and platelets as well as in most cultured cell lines. As with other IFs, vimentin provides a physical linkage between the plasma membrane and the nuclear envelope. The carboxy-terminus of vimentin associates with the lamin B of the nuclear envelope whereas the amino-terminus associates with the plasma membrane either directly or indirectly. In general, it is believed that IFs, including vimentin, provide a network onto which various enzyme systems, intracellular structures and organelles are spatially arranged within the cytoplasm. IFs may also play an active role in the re-organization of intracellular components in response to extracellular signals via their disassembly and reassembly. In normal vascular endothelium, vimentin, along with other cytoskeletal proteins, are typically not exposed to extracellular plasma proteins. However, with damage to endothelial cells, exposure of these cytoskeletal components may play a role in thrombogenesis or inflammatory responses. For example, it has been demonstrated that vimentin can bind complement components as wells as immunoglobulins. Vimetin has also been shown to bind vitronectin and vitronectin/PAI-1 complexes in LPS-damaged endothelial cells.1-3

 NCBI Summary for VIM    This gene encodes a member of the intermediate filament family. Intermediate filamentents, along with microtubules and actin microfilaments, make up the cytoskeleton. The protein encoded by this gene is responsible for maintaining cell shape, integrity of the cytoplasm, and stabilizing cytoskeletal interactions. It is also involved in the immune response, and controls the transport of low-density lipoprotein (LDL)-derived cholesterol from a lysosome to the site of esterification. It functions as an organizer of a number of critical proteins involved in attachment, migration, and cell signaling. Mutations in this gene causes a dominant, pulverulent cataract.
Section Bar
 UniProt Comments for VIM    Function: Vimentins are class-III intermediate filaments found in various non-epithelial cells, especially mesenchymal cells.

Subunit structure: Homopolymer. Interacts with HCV core protein. Interacts with LGSN and SYNM. Interacts (via rod region) with PLEC (via CH 1 domain)

By similarity. Interacts with SLC6A4. Ref.22 Ref.35

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. Ref.12 Ref.17

Post-translational modification: 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.

Sequence similarities: Belongs to the intermediate filament family.

Sequence caution: The sequence BAB71275.1 differs from that shown. Reason: Intron retention.
