NIH/3T3 cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde for 10 minutes, permeabilized with methanol for 6 minutes, and blocked with 5% FBS for 30 minutes. Cells were then intracellularly stained with 2.0 µg/mL (1:250 dilution) Alexa Fluor® 488 rat IgG2a, κ isotype ctrl antibody (Cat. No. 400525) (panel A) or Alexa Fluor® 488 anti-vimentin antibody (clone W16220A) (panel B) overnight at 4°C. Nuclei were counterstained with DAPI, and the image was captured with a 60X objective.

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.
