(anti-Human and others as indicated)

RDI Divison of researchd Industries Intl  offers a wide line of  antibodies. Since no one antibody works best for all applications (neutralization, blotting, ELISA, etc), we offer many different types of antibodies to help solve this problem. Please inquire for other applications or types of antibodies not listed below.

Background: The isolated intestinal microvillus cytoskeleton (core) consists of four major proteins: actin, villin, fimbrin, and brush border myosin-I. These proteins can assemble in vitro into structures resembling native microvillus cores. Of these components, villin, and brush border myosin-I show tissue-specific expression, so they may be involved in the morphogenesis of intestinal micro- villi. Found in association with the microvillar actin bundles of the intestinal brush border, villin is a 95kDa protein composed of   two very similar domains of approximately 44kDa each, the core, and a C-terminal domain of 8kDa, the headpiece. The core has been shown to contain villin's Ca+2 regulated capping, nucleating, and severing activities, but it cannot induce the formation of microfilament bundles without the headpiece. Villin is a useful differentiation marker of early embryogenesis and may be useful in diagnosis and follow-up of colorectal cancers. It has been demonstrated that villin is necessary for bothe the cytoskeletal and membrane protein organization of a functional brush border.
