Clone Host Grade Applications
Monoclonal Mouse Highly Purified IH IF
Twenty human keratins are resolved with two-dimensional gel electrophoresis into acidic (pI <5.7) and basic (pI >6.0) subfamilies. The acidic keratins have molecular weights of 56.5, 55, 51, 50, 50, 48, 46, 45, and 40kD. The basic keratins have molecular weights of 65-67, 64, 59, 58, 56 and 52kD. Members of acidic and basic subfamilies are found together in pairs. The composition of keratin pairs varies with cell type, differentiation status and environment. Many studies have shown the usefulness of keratins as markers in cancer research and tumor diagnosis.
Catalog #K0199-90

ImmunogenHuman epidermal keratin. Cellular Localization: Cytoplasmic.
SpecificityRecognizes acidic keratins at 56.5, 50 (doublet), 48 and 40kD. Recognizes basic keratins at 65-67, 64, 59, 58, 56 and 52kD. Reacts with keratinized (56.5/65-67) and corneal (55/64) epidermis, stratified squamous epithelia of internal organs (51/59), stratified epithelia (50/58), hyperproliferative keratinocytes (48/56) and simple epithelia (45/52 and 46/54). Anti pan-keratin antibody cocktail differentiates epithelial from non-epithelial tumors. Species Crossreactivity: Human, monkey, bovine, rabbit, mouse, rat and chicken.
