Vitronectin in Mouse Brain. Vitronectin was detected in immersion fixed frozen sections of fetal mouse brain using 10 µg/mL Rat Anti-Mouse Vitronectin Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB38751) overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained with the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Rat IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL013) and counterstained with DAPI (blue).

Vitronectin is a 71 kDa secreted glycoprotein produced by the liver and tumor cells. In blood, Vitronectin is called serum spreading factor. In the extracellular matrix, its function is determined by binding partners such as PAI-1, complement factors, integrins (notably alpha v beta 3) and thrombin. The 459 amino acid (aa) mature mouse Vitronectin shows 74% aa sequence identity with human Vitronectin and contains somatomedin B-like and hemopexin-like domains, an RGD motif, a basic heparin-binding domain and sulfated tyrosines. Unbound Vitronectin is a monomer that may be cleaved to form a dimer of 65 kDa and 10 kDa components.
