Alternative Name Vimentin (VIM Antibody Abstract)
Background Vimentin (57 kDa) is the intermediate filament protein (IFP) of mesenchymal cells. This IFP however often deviates from the tissue-specific and developmentally regulated pattern of expression. Besides its typical expression in most cultured cells, vimentin is also expressed together with several other IFPs during early stages of development. As differentiation proceeds, vimentin is exchanged for the tissue-specific intermediate filament type. Also in cancers, vimentin is often expressed in addition to the tissue-specific IFP.Synonyms: VIM
