LN 6 identifies a unique epitope of vimentin, a 60 kD protein, not expressed in cells of hematopoietic derivation. LN6 is useful in the immunohistological characterization of soft tissue disorders. It reacts robustly with sarcomas, melanomas and meningomas. LN6 does not, however, stain leukocyte common antigen-positive tissues such as lymphomas and leukemias. In normal tissue, LN6 stains endothelium, muscle, fibroblasts, melanocytes, peripheral nerve, sertoli cells, kidney mesangial cells and tubules, osteoblasts and periosteum
