Specifications

Clone Host Grade Applications
Monoclonal Mouse B IH IF
Cytokeratins, a group comprising at least 29 different proteins, are characteristic of epithelial and trichocytic cells. Cytokeratin 5, 6 and 8 are members of the type II neutral-to-basic subfamily.Monoclonal antibodies to cytokeratins are specific markers of epithelial cell differentiation and have been widely used as tools in tumor identification and classification. PCK-26 facilitates the typing of normal, metaplastic and neoplastic cells and it may aid in the discrimination of carcinomas and non-epithelial tumors such as sarcomas, lymphomas and neural tumors. It is also useful in detecting micro-metastases in lymph nodes and other tissues and for determining the origin of poorly differentiated tumors (Lane EB et al,Moll R et al).

SpecificityRecognizes the 58kD cytokeratin 5, the 56kD cytokeratin 6 and the 52kD cytokeratin 8 band in immunoblotting (Lane EB et al). It reacts specifically with a wide variety of normal, reactive and neoplastic epithelial tissues. The antibody reacts with simple, cornifying and non-cornifying squamous epithelia and pseudostratified epithelia. It does not react with non-epithelial normal human tissues.
