The Desmoglein family of transmembrane glycoproteins include desmoglein 1, 2, and 3. Desmoglein-1 (Dsg1, CDHF4) is found in specialized plasma membrane junctions known as desmosome junctions. These junctions serve as membrane anchorage domains for intermediate filaments and microfilaments. Actin microfilaments anchor at adherens junctions to form an array of junction sizes, shapes, and positions. These junctions generally contain E- or N-Cadherins whose cytoplasmic regions are associated with cytoplasmic proteins such as α- and β- catenins, vinculin, α-actinin, and radixin. Intermediate filaments (IFs) are anchored at desmosomes by the desmosome-specific cadherin family members, desmocollin and desmoglein. These proteins associate with cytoplasmic proteins such as desmoplakin and plakoglobin (γ-Catenin). Plakoglobin is the only junctional protein found at both desmosomes and adherens junctions and, therefore, plays a crucial role in cell adhesion.

Western blot analysis of human A431 (lane 1) and human MDA-MB-231 (lane 2) cell lysates. The blots were probed with mouse monoclonal anti-Desmoglein-1 (DM5931) at a dilution of 1:1000.

Clone M593 was generated from a recombinant protein containing amino acid residues in the c-terminal region of human desmoglein 1. This sequence has high homology with similar regions in rat and mouse desmoglein 1.
