Immunofluorescent analysis of Desmin (Green) in primary human hepatic stellate cells. The cells were fixed with 1% buffered formaldehyde for 15 minutes, permeabilized with 0.1% TritonX-100 in DPBS for 15 minutes, and blocked with blocking buffer (1% BSA+10% Goat serum+0.3M Glycine in DPBS) for 1 hour at room temperature. Cells were stained overnight with anti-Desmin polyclonal antibody (Product # PA5-16705) at a dilution of 1:100 at 4oC and then incubated with alexa fluor 488 labeled secondary antibody (Product # A-11034) at a dilution of 1:1000 for 1 hour at room temperature. Cells were counterstained with ProLong® Gold antifade mountant with DAPI (Product # P36941) and imaged.

PA5-16705 targets Desmin in IHC (P), IP, and WB applications and shows reactivity with Human, mouse, and Rat samples.
The PA5-16705 immunogen is a synthetic peptide mapping near the C-terminus of human desmin.
PA5-16705 has been successfully used in immunofluorescence and western blotting analysis of Desmin in primary human hepatic stellate cells.
Desmin is an intermediate filament protein of both smooth and striated muscles. Antibody to desmin reacts with striated (skeletal and cardiac) as well as smooth muscle cells. In skeletal and cardiac muscles, the staining is confined to the Z-bands giving a characteristic striated appearance. Anti-desmin antibody is useful in identification of tumors of myogenic origin.
