Desmin antibody | AbD03744
Desmin is a 52 kDa protein encoded by nine exons of a gene located at 2q35. Desmin forms a cytoskeletal network across the muscle fiber bordering at the plasma and nuclear membrane and is particularly localized to the subplasmalemmal region and the Z-band. Staining for desmin is useful for identification of rhabdomyosarcomas and leiomyomas.
For use in immunohistology staining we recommend the use of an anti-His tag bridging antibody, followed by visualization using the Dako Duet staining system.
- Target Species
- Product Form
- A bivalent human recombinant Fab selected from the HuCAL® GOLD phage display library. Expressed in E. Coli and purified using NiNTA affinity chromatography. This Fab fragment is dimerized via a helix-turn-helix motif. The antibody is tagged with a myc-tag (EQKLISEEDL) and a his-tag (HHHHHH) at the C-terminus of the anti-body heavy chain.
