Of the five classes of intermediate filaments found in vertebrate tissues, the cytokeratins are considered unique to epithelial tissues, while vimentin is expressed by endothelial and mesenchymal cells1. In neither case is the precise function of the filament system known. Epithelial cells in culture often express vimentin as well as cytokeratins1–3, but co-expression in vivo, as reported for pleomorphic adenomas of the parotid gland4,5 and metastatic carcinoma cells in ascites or pleural… CONTINUE READING
