target relevance
Vimentin, a key protein constituent of the intermediate filament cytoskeleton, plays a pivotal role in maintaining cellular integrity and structure. In research, vimentin has become a valuable biomarker due to its tissue-specific expression and involvement in various cellular processes. Immunohistochemical analysis of vimentin has been extensively utilized to identify and characterize mesenchymal cells, such as fibroblasts, endothelial cells, and immune cells, aiding in the study of tissue development, wound healing, and cancer progression. Additionally, vimentin has been linked to epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT), a critical process implicated in embryonic development and metastasis. Furthermore, efforts to develop vimentin-targeting therapies for cancer treatment have shown promise, as vimentin's involvement in EMT and tumor progression make it a potential therapeutic target for limiting cancer metastasis.

Protein family
Intermediate filament family
Vimentins are class-III intermediate filaments found in various non-epithelial cells, especially mesenchymal cells. Vimentin is attached to the nucleus, endoplasmic reticulum, and mitochondria, either laterally or terminally. ; Involved with LARP6 in the stabilization of type I collagen mRNAs for CO1A1 and CO1A2.

Highly expressed in fibroblasts, some expression in T- and B-lymphocytes, and little or no expression in Burkitt's lymphoma cell lines. Expressed in many hormone-independent mammary carcinoma cell lines.
Homomer assembled from elementary dimers (PubMed:20176112). Identified in complexes that contain VIM, EZR, AHNAK, BFSP1, BFSP2, ANK2, PLEC, PRX and spectrin (By similarity).

Post-translational modification
Filament disassembly during mitosis is promoted by phosphorylation at Ser-55 as well as by nestin (By similarity). One of the most prominent phosphoproteins in various cells of mesenchymal origin. Phosphorylation is enhanced during cell division, at which time vimentin filaments are significantly reorganized. Phosphorylation by PKN1 inhibits the formation of filaments. Phosphorylated at Ser-56 by CDK5 during neutrophil secretion in the cytoplasm (PubMed:21465480). Phosphorylated by STK33 (PubMed:18811945). Phosphorylated on tyrosine residues by SRMS (PubMed:29496907). ; O-glycosylated during cytokinesis at sites identical or close to phosphorylation sites, this interferes with the phosphorylation status. ; S-nitrosylation is induced by interferon-gamma and oxidatively-modified low-densitity lipoprotein (LDL(ox)) possibly implicating the iNOS-S100A8/9 transnitrosylase complex.
