Scientific Data

Immunohistochemistry Desmin antibody in Human Heart by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P). View Larger

Desmin in Human Heart. Desmin was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human heart using 15 µg/mL Human Desmin Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF3844) overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained with the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS008) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific labeling was localized to the sarcoplasm of cardiomyocytes. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Paraffin-embedded Tissue Sections.

Desmin in Mouse Skeletal Muscle. Desmin was detected in immersion fixed frozen sections of mouse skeletal muscle using Human Desmin Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF3844) at 10 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL001) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to z-lines.

Immunocytochemistry/ Immunofluorescence Detection of Human Desmin by Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence View Larger

Detection of Human Desmin by Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence Overview of Multi-dimensional Microscopic Molecular Profiling (MMMP).The overall MMMP approach is depicted using an example tissue section from normal human duodenum (sample #1.9.7). (a) Slides were subjected to repeated cycles of staining and imaging with fluorescent primary antibodies and DAPI. At the end of each cycle, fluorescent signal was removed by a chemical bleaching process, and slides were again imaged, before proceeding to the next round of this iterative procedure. After the final antibody stain (#15 Sma), slides were analyzed with a series of histochemical stains. (b) A set of tiling images spanning each tissue section was initially generated by the microscope system. The tiling images were then computationally ‘stitched’ together to produce a single image per staining cycle for each sample. (c) Image registration was performed to align images from the same tissue section across cycles. Mean intensities of the DAPI signal from all immuno-fluorescence images are shown from before (Unregistered) and after (Registered) the image registration procedure was completed. (d) Following registration, signal intensities from the relevant channels for each image (columns) in the MMMP series were extracted for each pixel (rows) within the tissue section and compiled into a large data matrix of in situ molecular profiles.

Scale bar = 150 μm. (B) Comparison of differentiation potential into neuroectoderm (PAX6) and mesoderm (DESMIN) between non-GMP (research-grade) and GMP-grade lines (BJ, HUF1).

Background: Desmin

Desmin is a 53 kDa, muscle-specific molecule that belongs to the intermediate filament superfamily of cytoskeletal proteins. Cytoplasmic Desmin homopolymers form stable filamentous networks that stabilize lateral alignments of myofibrils. Human Desmin is 470 amino acid (aa) peptide. It contains an N-terminal head segment (aa 1-84), multiple coiled regions (aa 109-412), and a tail region (aa 413-470). Single amino acid substitutions and three-amino acid deletions are associated with cardio‑skeletal myopathies. Most mutations affect filament assembly. Desmin is a highly conserved protein. Over the region used as immunogen, human Desmin is 99% identical to the corresponding mouse, canine, and porcine protein sequences.
