Gene: VIM (vimentin) Homo sapiens
Symbol: VIM
Name: vimentin
CRRD ID: 733128
Description: Exhibits several functions, including identical protein binding activity; keratin filament binding activity; and scaffold protein binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to muramyl dipeptide; positive regulation of collagen biosynthetic process; and posttranscriptional regulation of gene expression. Localizes to several cellular components, including intermediate filament; peroxisome; and polysome. Implicated in atherosclerosis; autoimmune disease (multiple); and cataract 30. Biomarker of Alzheimer's disease; Chagas disease; and coronary artery disease.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: CTRCT30; epididymis luminal protein 113; FLJ36605; HEL113
