Technical Data
Desmin (DES, CMD1I, CSM1, CSM2, FLJ12025, FLJ39719, FLJ41013, FLJ41793, Intermediate Filament Protein)
Suitable for use in Immunofluorescence, Immunoblot. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
Immunofluorescence (Indirect): 1:10-1:20 (formalin fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human intestine sections). Note: Recommend antigen retrieval with citrate buffer
Optimal dilutions to be determined by researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, aliquot Store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
