Monoclonal Mouse Affinity Purified B IH IF
The binding region of this antibody has been characterized by Bohn et al. (1992). According to these authors, the epitope has been localized on the alphahelical part of vimentin (rod domain coil 2). Due to an aa substitution at position of aa353 in murine vimentin (that could explain for the weak crossreaction of the antibody with murine vimentin) they were able to narrow down the binding region around position 353. These findings were confirmed by truncation mutagenesis experiments using human vimentin (Rogers et al., 1995).
Catalog #V2122-03C
ApplicationsSuitable for use in Western Blot, FLISA, Immunofluorescence microscopy and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.
Recommended DilutionImmunohistochemistry (frozen and paraffin-embedded tissue and cytological material): 1:10 with PBS, pH 7.4; Incubation Time 1 hr at RT; extended with paraffin. Protease pretreatment is required prior to antibody application.
Optimal dilution determined by the researcher.
Positive ControlsCultured RD cells, glioma cells, fibroblasts (SV-80), MDCK. Tumors specifically detected: sarcoma (including myosarcoma), lymphoma, melanoma.
