FunctionDesmin are class-III intermediate filaments found in muscle cells. In adult striated muscle they form a fibrous network connecting myofibrils to each other and to the plasma membrane from the periphery of the Z-line structures.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in DES are the cause of myopathy myofibrillar desmin-related (MFM-DES) [MIM:601419]; also known as desmin-related myopathy (DRM). A neuromuscular disorder characterized by skeletal muscle weakness associated with cardiac conduction blocks, arrhythmias, restrictive heart failure, and by myofibrillar destruction with intracytoplasmic accumulation of desmin-reactive deposits in cardiac and skeletal muscle cells.
Defects in DES are the cause of cardiomyopathy dilated type 1I (CMD1I) [MIM:604765]. Dilated cardiomyopathy is a disorder characterized by ventricular dilation and impaired systolic function, resulting in congestive heart failure and arrhythmia. Patients are at risk of premature death.
Defects in DES are the cause of neurogenic scapuloperoneal syndrome Kaeser type (Kaeser syndrome) [MIM:181400]. Kaeser syndrome is an autosomal dominant disorder with a peculiar scapuloperoneal distribution of weakness and atrophy. A large clinical variability is observed ranging from scapuloperoneal, limb grindle and distal phenotypes with variable cardiac or respiratory involvement. Facial weakness, dysphagia and gynaecomastia are frequent additional symptoms. Affected men seemingly bear a higher risk of sudden, cardiac death as compared to affected women. Histological and immunohistochemical examination of muscle biopsy specimens reveal a wide spectrum of findings ranging from near normal or unspecific pathology to typical, myofibrillar changes with accumulation of desmin.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the intermediate filament family.

Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections) analysis of mouse cardiac muscle tissue labelling Desmin with ab6322 at a dulution of 1/200. Heat mediated antigen retrieval was performed using ab93684 (Tris/EDTA buffer, pH 9.0). A ready to use HRP-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG H&L was used as the secondary antibody. Counter stained with Hematoxylin.

Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections) analysis of rat colon tissue labelling Desmin with ab6322 at a dulution of 1/200. Heat mediated antigen retrieval was performed using ab93684 (Tris/EDTA buffer, pH 9.0). A ready to use HRP-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG H&L was used as the secondary antibody. Counter stained with Hematoxylin.

IHC image of Desmin staining in human skeletal muscle formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica BondTM 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 ab6322, 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.
