||Chicken Anti Vimentin pAb; Anti Vimentin
||Vimentin is protein subunit of the 10 nm or intermediate filaments protein found in many kinds of mesenchymal and epithelia cells, in many kinds of cells in tissue culture and in developing neuronal and astrocytic precursor cells in the central nervous system. Vimentin frequently forms copolymers with other intermediate filament proteins, such as GFAP (in many kinds of astrocytes), with desmin (in muscle cells) and neurofilament proteins (in developing neurons). Antibodies to vimentin are useful in studies of stem cells and generally to reveal the filamentous cytoskeleton. This antibody was raised in chickens against purified recombinant vimentin.
||Recombinant vimentin purified from E. coli
||1 mg/ml in PBS, pH 7.4 with 0.05% sodium azide, frozen liquid
||Vimentin from human, rat, mouse
||Stable for one year at -20ºC from date of shipment. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Aliquot will be stable at 4ºC for 3 months.
||Briefly centrifuge the vial on a tabletop centrifuge to dislodge any liquid in the container's cap because small volumes of antibody will occasionally become entrapped in the seal of the product vial during shipment and storage.
