Villin is a calcium-regulated, actin-binding glycoprotein of microvilli which has a certain effect of the actin filament assembly regulation. It is associated with rootlet formation in gastrointestinal mucosal epithelium. The antibody labels the brush border area in the gastrointestinal mucosal epithelium. It can be useful in differentiating gastrointestinal adenocarcinoma, neuroendocrine carcinomas and ovarian adenocarcinomas from adenocarcinomas from other organs.
