  • General notes

    The clone number has been updated from 3G133 to 5G11 since both name the same clone and 5G11 is the original clone number.

    For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.



Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab14416 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
IP Use at an assay dependent concentration.
ICC/IF Use at an assay dependent concentration.
IHC-P Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
WB Use a concentration of 1 - 3 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 119.9 kDa.


  • FunctionComponent of intercellular desmosome junctions. Involved in the interaction of plaque proteins and intermediate filaments mediating cell-cell adhesion.
  • Tissue specificityEpidermis, tongue, tonsil, esophagus and carcinomas.
  • Sequence similaritiesContains 4 cadherin domains.
  • DomainThree calcium ions are usually bound at the interface of each cadherin domain and rigidify the connections, imparting a strong curvature to the full-length ectodomain.
  • Cellular localizationCell membrane. Cell junction > desmosome.

Anti-Desmoglein 3 antibody [5G11] images

  • IHC image of Desmoglein 3 staining in Human skin melanoma formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica Bond™ system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab14416, 5µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.


    For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.

  • Immunohistochemical analysis of Human tongue tissue, staining Desmoglein 3 with ab14416.

    Tissue was fixed with formaldehyde and antigen retrieval was by proteinase K. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/500 in Tris buffered saline with 0.1% Tween 20) for 18 hours at 4°C. An HRP-conjugated goat anti-mouse polyclonal IgG (1/2) was used as the secondary antibody.
