You can check the tissue specificity below for information on selecting positive and negative control.

Gene Name Vcl
Protein Name Vinculin
Molecular Weight 116615 MW
Protein 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 (By similarity). .
Tissue Specificity VCL: Metavinculin is muscle-specific.
Sequence Similarities Belongs to the vinculin/alpha-catenin family.
Subcellular Localization Cell membrane ; Peripheral membrane protein ; Cytoplasmic side . Cell junction, adherens junction . Cell junction, focal adhesion . Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton . 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. .

Background for Vinculin

Vinculin is a cytoskeletal protein associated with the cytoplasmic face of both cell-cell and cell-extracellular matrix adherens-type junctions, where it is thought to function as one of several interacting proteins involved in anchoring F-actin to the membrane. Both human and chicken embryo sequences of vinculin contain 1,066 amino acids and, furthermore, that the 2 proteins exhibit a high level of sequence identity(greater than 95%). Vinculinis mapped to 10q22.1-q23.
