Protein expression - VIM
Thyroid cancer (follicular carcinoma) showing the expression of vimentin (VIM) in the tumor stroma.
Vimentin (VIM) - Marker for mesenchymal cellsVimentin is an intermediate filament protein ubiquitously expressed mesenchymal cells, and is therefore used clinically to identify mesenchyme and sarcoma tumors. The function of vimentin is to provide cellular integrity and cell shape by supporting and anchoring organelles within the cytoplasm.
