Monoclonal Anti-Titin can be used for study of the elastic filaments within sarcomeric structures. It is also useful as a differentiation marker in the separation of rhabdomyosarcomas from other muscle tumors. By indirect immunofluorescence the antibody displays a typical striated staining pattern on frozen sections of chicken skeletal and cardiac muscle tissues. Stains the region of the A-I junction by indirect immunofluorescence. It shows a decoration line 0.05 mm from the end of the A band in electron micro-graphs. In immunoblotting using total extracts of chicken breast muscle the antibody reacts specifically with both bands of the titin doublet, and showed no reaction with nebulin.
