Detection of Human Vinculin by Western Blot.
Western blot shows lysates of HeLa human cervical epithelial carcinoma cell line and HepG2 human hepatocellular carcinoma cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human Vinculin Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB6896) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). A specific band was detected for Vinculin at approximately 124 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
Vinculin in Human Uterus.
Vinculin was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human uterus using Mouse Anti-Human Vinculin Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB6896) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Before incubation with the primary antibody, tissue was subjected to heat-induced epitope retrieval using Antigen Retrieval Reagent-Basic (Catalog # CTS013). Tissue was stained using the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to smooth muscle cells. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Paraffin-embedded Tissue Sections.
Detection of Human Vinculin by Simple WesternTM.
Simple Western lane view shows lysates of HeLa human cervical epithelial carcinoma cell line, loaded at 0.2 mg/mL. A specific band was detected for Vinculin at approximately 92 kDa (as indicated) using 20 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human/Mouse/Rat Vinculin Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB6896). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using the 12-230 kDa separation system.

VCL (vinculin) is a 117 kDa actin binding cytoskeletal phosphoprotein found in adherens-type cell-cell and cell-matrix junctions. The 1066 amino acid (aa) human vinculin contains an N-terminal globular head (aa 2-835) with a talin interaction domain (aa 168-208) and three tandem repeats (aa 259-589), a pro-rich linker region (aa 826-878), and a C-terminal tail that facilitates phospholipid membrane insertion (aa 1003-1134). An 1134 aa form termed metavinculin contains 68 aa inserted after aa 915 and mainly occurs in cardiac, skeletal and smooth muscle. Human, mouse and rat vinculin share 100% aa sequence identity within the region used as an immunogen.
