Immunofluorescence analysis of Vinculin was performed using 70% confluent log phase U-2 OS cells. The cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde for 10 minutes, permeabilized with 0.1% Triton™ X-100 for 10 minutes, and blocked with 1% BSA for 1 hour at room temperature. The cells were labeled with Vinculin (VLN01) Mouse Monoclonal Antibody (MA5-11690) at 2 µg/ml in 0.1% BSA and incubated for 3 hours at room temperature and then labeled with Goat anti-Mouse IgG (H+L) Superclonal™ Secondary Antibody, Alexa Fluor® 488 conj µgate (A28175) at a dilution of 1:2000 for 45 minutes at room temperature (Panel a: green). Nuclei (Panel b: blue) were stained with SlowFade® Gold Antifade Mountant with DAPI (S36938). F-actin (Panel c: red) was stained with Alexa Fluor® 555 Rhodamine Phalloidin (Product # R415, 1:300). Panel d represents the merged image showing cytoplasmic localization. Panel e shows the no primary antibody control. The images were captured at 60X magnification.

MA5-11690 targets Vinculin in IF, IHC (P), IP, and WB applications and shows reactivity with Human samples.
The MA5-11690 immunogen is semi-purified vinculin.
Vinculin is an attachment protein involved in the indirect binding of intracellular actin filaments to extracellular fibronectin. Vinculin binds to actin capping protein and alpha actinin, which in turn binds to actin. The binding of fibronectin is also indirect where vinculin binds to talin, which in turn binds to the intracellular domain of the fibronectin receptor which itself is the ligand for fibronectin. Vinculin is widely distributed in tissue and is expressed where smooth muscle actin and fibroblasts attach to the extracellular matrix.
