|Background||Vimentin is the major subunit protein of the intermediate filaments of mesenchumal cells, and has a molecular weight of 57 kD. Immunohistochemical staining for Vimentin is thus characteristic of sarcomas (of neural, muscle and fibroblast origin) compared to carcinomas which are generally negative. Melanomas, lymphomas and vascular tumors may all stain for Vimentin. Vimentin antibodies are thus of value in the differential diagnosis of malignant tumors, generally used with a panel of other antibodies including those recognizing cytokeratins, lymphoid markers, S100, desmin and neurofilaments.|
|Protein Families||ES Cell Differentiation/IPS|
