Desmin is a normal constituent of skeletal muscle fibers; vimentin is contained in myoblasts and connective tissue cells. The intracellular localization of both intermediate filament proteins in regenerating rat muscles was investigated by immunohisto- and immunocytochemistry. Necrosis was induced by hot Ringer solution. Desmin and vimentin were diffusely distributed in myoblasts and young myotubes. Both proteins became arranged in a sarcomeric fashion between the Z-lines when the sarcomeres… CONTINUE READING
