Vimentin Antibody, pAb, Chicken
Full Name
Vimentin Antibody, pAb, Chicken Vimentin Antibody, pAb, Chicken
Abbreviated name-1
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.
