DG 3.10 recognizes desmoglein 1 + 2 (desmosome-specific cadherins) in desmosome-bearing cells; does not react with cells containing plaque-bearing junctions of non-desmosomal type. Tumors specifically detected: all epithelium-derived tumors, notably carcinomas, and meningiomas. Polypeptide reacting: Mr 165 000 Desmoglein, "band 3" polypeptide of the desmosomal complex. Epitope recognized has been localized at the repeating unit domain ("RUD") of the cytoplasmic C-terminal part of the polypeptide.

Reactivity on cultured cell lines: A-431, MCF-7, TR-146, PLC and various other human epithelial cell lines; bovine BMGE+H, BMGE-H, MDBK.
