  I was just requested by my supervisor to ask the histonet the following question:
  Can a antibody against Vimentin stain monocytes/macrophages?
  We are working with human heart / coronary artery samples.  I do not have much more information than that... but I figured anyone who deals with this protein would have considerable knowledge to quickly answer this question.  
  Thank you in advance for your assistance.
