ARA Antibodies for Research Applications

Anti-human vimentin (clone V9)

           "Binding of V9 monoclonal antibodies to human vimentin"

Hybridoma Clone    Antibody Isotype    Cat. No.
V9-2b                    Mouse IgG2b         ARA27

A mouse was immunized with vimentin isolated from cow lens. Antibody-producing cells were isolated after fusing the spleen cells of the mouse with murine myeloma cells by selecting the cells that produced antibodies capable of staining mesenchymal cells in thin sections of human colon.

The antibody does stain all cells that contain vimentin. Only frozen section can be used. The antibody only stains the 57kDa vimentin band in immunoblots performed on a lysate of human lymphocytes.
