Immunogen A synthetic peptide from c-terminal region of mouse Desmin conjugated to an immunogenic carrier protein was used as the immunogen. The antigen is homologous in human and rat.
Specificity Specific for Desmin.
Purification Whole serum
Alternative Name Desmin (DES Antibody Abstract)
Background Function: Desmin are class-III intermediate filaments found in muscle cells. In adult striated muscle they form a fibrous network connecting myofibrils to each other and to the plasma membrane from the periphery of the Z-line structures. Defects in DES are the cause of desmin-related cardio-skeletal myopathy (CSM), also known as desmin-related myopathy (DRM). CSM is characterized by skeletal muscle weakness associated with cardiac conduction blocks, arrhythmias, restrictive heart failure, and by intracytoplasmic accumulation of desmin-reactive deposits in cardiac and skeletal muscle cells. A desmin-related myopathy can have a distal onset, it is then known as hereditary distal myopathy (HDM). Defects in DES are the cause of neurogenic scapuloperoneal syndrome Kaeser type (Kaeser syndrome).
Subcellular location: Cytoplasm. Also known as: Des.
Research Area Cancer, Cytoskeleton
Application Notes A dilution of 1 : 300 to 1 : 2000 is recommended.
The optimal dilution should be determined by the end user.
Not yet tested in other applications.
Restrictions For Research Use only
Format Lyophilized
Reconstitution Reconstitute in 500 µL of sterile water. Centrifuge to remove any insoluble material.
Handling Advice Avoid freeze and thaw cycles.
Storage 4 °C/-20 °C
Storage Comment Maintain the lyophilised/reconstituted antibodies frozen at -20°C for long term storage and refrigerated at 2-8°C for a shorter term. When reconstituting, glycerol (1:1) may be added for an additional stability. Avoid freeze and thaw cycles.
Expiry Date 12 months
