HeLa cells were fixed with 2% paraformaldehyde (PFA) for ten minutes and permeabilized with 0.5% Triton X-100 for five minutes followed by blocking with 5% FBS for 30 minutes. The cells were then intracellularly stained with 2.5 µg/ml Alexa Fluor® 647 anti-Vimentin (clone O91D3) antibody (red) in 5% FBS for two hours at room temperature, followed by Alexa Fluor® 488 Phalloidin (green) staining for 20 minutes at room temperature. Nuclei were counterstained with DAPI (blue).

    Human paraffin-embedded colon tissue slices were prepared with a standard protocol of deparaffinization and rehydration. Antigen retrieval was done with Tris Buffered 1X (1.0M, pH6.0) at 95°C for 40 minutes. Tissue was washed with PBS/0.05% Tween 20 twice for five minutes and blocked with 5% FBS and 0.2% gelatin for 30 minutes. Then, the tissue was stained with 10 µg/mL of Alexa Fluor® 647 anti-Vimentin Antibody (Clone O91D3, red) and Alexa Fluor® 594 anti-Galectin-9 Antibody (Clone 9M1-3, royal blue) antibody overnight at 4°C. Nuclei were counterstained with DAPI (green). The image was scanned with a 10X objective and stitched with MetaMorph® software.

Description

Vimentin are class-III intermediate filaments found in various non-epithelial cells, especially mesenchymal cells. Vimentin is a widely expressed and highly conserved 54 kD protein that is constitutively expressed in mesenchymal cells, endothelial cells lining blood vessels, renal tubular cells, macrophages, neutrophils, fibroblasts, and leukocytes1,2. Vimentin is used as a marker of mesenchymal cells to distinguish them from epithelial cells3. Increased vimentin expression is frequently used as an EMT marker in cancer4. Autoantibodies to vimentin are commonly found in patients with autoimmune diseases such as Lupus5 and rheumatoid arthritis6, and also found after transplantation7.

Recommended Usage

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by immunofluorescence staining. For immunofluorescence microscopy, a concentration range of 1.0 - 5.0 μg/ml is recommended. For immunohistochemical staining on formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue sections, the suggested use of this reagent is 5.0 - 10 µg per ml. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

* Alexa Fluor® 647 has a maximum emission of 668 nm when it is excited at 633 nm / 635 nm.

Application Notes

While this clone recognizes mouse Vimentin, we do not recommend its usage for western blot due to poor affinity of the antibody for the protein.
