Labels smooth and striated muscle cells. The antibody works on paraffin-embedded material without pretreament with proteolytic enzymes. Anti-Desmin, clone D33, is a useful aid for classification of tumors of uncertain origin.
Optimized staining performance of both high and low-expression structures
Crisp and clear staining with no background
Optimal laboratory efficiency with ready-to-use antibodies on Dako Autostainer Plus
The staining performance of all antibodies has been defined, tested and approved through collaboration with leading international pathologists. Check the Atlas of Stains - a guide to diagnostic accuracy.
Desmin purified from human muscle.
Ready-to-use monoclonal mouse antibody provided in liquid form in a buffer containing stabilizing protein and 0.015 mol/L sodium azide.
Dako Autostainer/Autostainer Plus
In Western blotting of cytoskeletal preparations of MCF-7 cells, SCC-4 cells RT-112 cells, skin epidermis, primary culture of renal carcinoma cells, leiomyoma, fetal heart, and crude extract from human white matter of brain, the antibody labels only a ~53 kDa band in the leiomyoma and fetal heart preparations, proving the reactivity with desmin, and demonstrating the absence of reactivity with other types of intermediate filaments tested (7).
