Clone Host Grade Applications
Monoclonal Mouse Supernatant IH
Cytokeratin 20 was originally identified as IT, a low molecular weight, acidic (Type I) cytokeratin. This antibody can be used in immunohistochemistry as a marker for a restricted profile of carcinomas, including adenocarcinomas of the colon, transitional cell carcinomas of the bladder, Merkel-cell tumors of the skin, mucinous varian carcinoma, and some pancreatic carcinomas. Squamous cell carcinoma, adenocarcinomas of the lung, and breast, endometrium and neuroendocrine tumors were essentially negative.
