Heat-mediated antigen retrieval is recommended prior to staining, using a 10mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0, for 10 minutes followed by cooling at room temperature for 20 min. Following antigen retrieval, incubate samples with primary antibody for 30 min at room temperature. A suggested positive control is pancreas or small intestine tissue.
Vinculin is a cytoskeletal protein associated with the cytoplasmic faces of both cell-cell and cell extracellular matrix adherens type junctions. It functions as one of several interacting proteins involved in anchoring F-actin to the membrane. The sequences of chicken, nematode and human vinculin have been determined. It has been shown that a sequence of molecular interactions might be involved in the transmembrane assembly of adhesion plaques. In the assembly of adhesion plaques, the beta subunit of integrin binds to talin. Talin binds to vinculin that interacts with alpha actinin and possibly with itself. Since alpha actinin binds to and cross links actin filaments, vinculin represents a key element in the transmembrane linkage of the extracellular matrix to the cytoplasmic microfilament system.
