Mouse anti Human Desmoglein 3 antibody, clone 5G11 recognizes human desmoglein-3, also known as 130 kDa pemphigus vulgaris antigen or Cadherin family member 6. Desmoglein-3 is a 999 amino acid ~125 kDa single pass type I transmembrane glycoprotein, a core component of the desmosome cell-cell junction between epithelial cells.

Desmoglein-3 is synthesized in the basal and lower suprabasal layers of the skin.

Mouse anti Human Desmoglein 3 antibody, clone 5G11 does not recognise desmoglein-1 or desmoglein-2.

Western Blotting 1/100 1/1000
  1. 1This product requires protein digestion pre-treatment of paraffin sections e.g. pepsin (See Wu et al). Alternatively it is reported that staining of FFPE material may be enhanced using protein digestion with e.g. pronase, followed by HIER in citrate buffer.
Where this product has not been tested for use in a particular technique this does not necessarily exclude its use in such procedures. Suggested working dilutions are given as a guide only. It is recommended that the user titrates the product for use in their own system using appropriate negative/positive controls.
