Technical Data
Acidic Hair Keratin, K35 (KRT35, Keratin 35, HA5, Ha-5, Hair Keratin, Type I Ha5, hHa5, HHA5, HKA5, K35, Keratin, Type I Cuticular Ha5, Keratin-35, KRTHA5, hHa5)
The keratins are intermediate filament proteins responsible for the structural integrity of epithelial cells and are subdivided into cytokeratins and hair keratins. Most of the type I cytokeratins consist of acidic proteins which are arranged in pairs of heterotypic keratin chains and are clustered in a region on chromosome 17q21.2.

Suitable for use in Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry.
Other applications have not been tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
Western Blot (ECL): 1:2000
Immunohistochemistry (Frozen): 1:200. For enhancement of cortex staining, we recommend preincubating fixed sections with 0.1% Triton X-100 in PBS for 1-5 minutes prior to first antibody incubation step. Incubate for 1 hour at RT.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for 12 months after receipt. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
