Description: Goat polyclonal antibody to Vimentin. VIM is a member of the intermediate filament family. The cytoskeleton is made by these intermediate filaments, along with actin microfilaments and microtubules. VIM is responsible for integrity of the cytoplasm, stabilization of the cytoskeletal interactions and maintaining cell shape. This protein controls the transport of LDL-derived cholesterol from a lysosome to the site of esterification and is also involved in the immune response. It functions as an organizer of a number of critical proteins involved in migration, attachment and cell signaling.

Alternative names
