Desmin, CT (DES, CMD1I, CSM1, CSM2, FLJ12025, FLJ39719, FLJ41013, FLJ41793, Intermediate Filament Protein)
Description:
Desmin is an intermediate filament protein of both smooth and striated muscles. Antibody to desmin reacts with striated (skeletal and cardiac) as well as smooth muscle cells. In skeletal and cardiac muscles, the staining is confined to the Z-bands giving a characteristic striated appearance. Anti-desmin antibody is useful in identification of tumors of myogenic origin. It reacts with leiomysarcomas (smooth muscle) as well as rhabdomysarcomas (striated muscle).

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
ELISA: 1:2000
Western Blot: 0.1-0.3ug/ml
Immunohistochemistry (Formalin fixed paraffin embedded): 3.75ug/ml
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
