Long descriptionDesmin is a 53 kDa intermediate filament protein that exhibits a high degree of tissue specificity, its expression being predominantly confined to all types of muscle cells (cardiac, skeletal and smooth muscle). Regulation of desmin expression is stage and tissue-specific, since it is induced during terminal development. In skeletal en cardiac muscle cells desmin is localized in the Z-disk region and at the intercalated disk. The expression pattern of desmin in smooth muscle is much more heterogenous. Coexpression of vimentin and desmin has been observed in tumors derived from muscle tissue, i.e. rhabdomyosarcomas and leiomyosarcomas. Furthermore, during myocard dysfunction dramatic changes in the distribution of desmin have been observed.
Antibody come fromD33 is a mouse monoclonal IgG1 antibody derived by fusion of mouse myeloma cells with spleen cells from a BALB/c mouse immunized with purified desmin from a leiomyosarcoma.
Other descriptionEach vial contains 100ul 1mg/ml purified monoclonal antibody in phosphate buffered saline (PBS) containing 0.09% sodium azide

Antibody's reacts with these speciesThis antibody doesn't cross react with other species
Antibody's specificityThe antibody D33 reacts exclusively with desmin, which is expressed in smooth and striated muscle cells and their tumors e.g. rhabdomyosarcoma and leiomyosarcoma in human, hamster, rat and chicken. The antibody does not cross react with vimentin or any of the other intermediate filament proteins.
Research interestCell Biology
ApplicationImmunocytochemistry, Immunohistochemistry (Frozen, Paraffin), Western Blotting
Antibody's suited forThe D33 antibody is suitable for the detection of desmin by Western blotting and detects a band of 53kDa in muscle tissue extracts. The antibody is also suitable for the detection of desmin by immunocytochemistry on permeabilized cells, and Immunohistochemistry on frozen and formalin fixed, paraffin embedded tissues. The antibody works on paraffin-embedded material without pretreament with proteolytic enzymes, but the section should be pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with Tris-buffer containing 1 mM EDTA, pH 9,0 for 20 mins. Optimal antibody dilutions for the different applications should be determined by titration.
StorageStore at 4oC, or in small aliquots at -20oC.

WarningsThis product is intended FOR RESEARCH USE ONLY, and FOR TESTS IN VITRO, not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures involving humans or animals. This product contains sodium azide. To prevent formation of toxic vapors, do not mix with strong acidic solutions. To prevent formation of potentially explosive metallic azides in metal plumbing, always wash into drain with copious quantities of water. This datasheet is as accurate as reasonably achievable, but Nordic-MUbio accepts no liability for any inaccuracies or omissions in this information.
DescriptionThis antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
GeneDesmins or DES proteins detect by anti-desmin antibodies and DES ELISA kits. DSM1 and DSM2 play an important role in Desminopathy. Desmin regulated Myofibrilate Myopathy is a protein filament mutation of muscle proteins.
TestMouse or mice from the Mus musculus species are used for production of mouse monoclonal antibodies or mabs and as research model for humans in your lab. Mouse are mature after 40 days for females and 55 days for males. The female mice are pregnant only 20 days and can give birth to 10 litters of 6-8 mice a year. Transgenic, knock-out, congenic and inbread strains are known for C57BL/6, A/J, BALB/c, SCID while the CD-1 is outbred as strain.
