desmin from chicken gizzard

General description

Desmin is an intermediate filament protein found mainly in skeletal, cardiac, and smooth muscle cells. It acts as a marker for tumor origin. It also facilitates mechanical support for muscles, mitochondrial localization, myofibrillogenesis, gene expression regulation, and intracellular signalling. Anti-desmin antibody can be used for immunocytochemical localization of intermediate filaments in all types of muscle cells. It can also be used to stain a wide desmin band of 50,000 to 55,000 molecular weight using immunoblotting assays. Rabbit anti-desmin antibody reacts specifically with desmin in bovine, mouse, chicken and human.


Anti-desmin antibody can be used in immunocytochemistry and western immunoblotting. It can also be used in indirect immunofluorescence.
