    Vitronectin (Vn) is an abundant plasma glycoprotein identified also as a part of extracellular matrix. Vn is substantially enriched at sites of injured, fibrosing, inflamed, and tumor tissues where it is believed to be involved in wound healing and tissue remodeling. Little is known about the mechanism of Vn localization into the damaged tissues. 2E12 antibody has been described to bind a subset of late apoptotic cells. The antigen recognized by 2E12 antibody was identified as Vn. Vn binds to the late apoptotic and necrotic cells in cell cultures in vitro as well as in murine thymus and spleen in vivo. Confocal microscopy revealed that Vn binds to an intracellular cytoplasmic structure after the membrane rupture. Vitronectin could serve as a marker of membrane disruption in necrosis and apoptosis for flow cytometry analysis. Vn binding to dead cells may represent one of the mechanisms of Vn incorporation into the injured tissues.
