|Other Names||Vinculin, Metavinculin, MV, VCL|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP7426a was selected from the N-term region of human VINC. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Actin filament (F-actin)-binding protein involved in cell-matrix adhesion and cell-cell adhesion. Regulates cell- surface E-cadherin expression and potentiates mechanosensing by the E-cadherin complex. May also play important roles in cell morphology and locomotion.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton. Cell junction, adherens junction. Cell membrane; Peripheral membrane protein; Cytoplasmic side. Cell junction, focal adhesion. Note=Cytoplasmic face of adhesion plaques. Recruitment to cell-cell junctions occurs in a myosin II- dependent manner. Interaction with CTNNB1 is necessary for its localization to the cell-cell junctions (By similarity) Colocalizes with LIMD1 in the focal adhesions.|
|Tissue Location||Metavinculin is muscle-specific.|

VINC is a cytoskeletal protein associated with cell-cell and cell-matrix junctions, where it is thought to function as one of several interacting proteins involved in anchoring F-actin to the membrane. Defects in VCL are the cause of cardiomyopathy dilated type 1W. Dilated cardiomyopathy is a disorder characterized by ventricular dilation and impaired systolic function, resulting in congestive heart failure and arrhythmia.
