Technical Data
Cytokeratin (Cytokeratin 1, CK1, 67kD, Cytokeratin 8, Cytokeratin 19, EHK, EPPK, Hair Alpha Protein, Keratin Type II Cytoskeletal 1, Keratin-1, K1, KRT1, KRT1A, NEPPK, Type-II Keratin Kb1)
Cytokeratin 1 is a type II Cytokeratin. The type II Cytokeratins consist of basic or neutral proteins which are arranged in pairs of heterotypic keratin chains coexpressed during differentiation of simple and stratified epithelial tissues. This type II Cytokeratin is specifically expressed in the spinous and granular layers of the epidermis with family member KRT10 and mutations in these genes have been associated with bullous congenital ichthyosiform erythroderma.

Suitable for use in Western Blot, Immunocytochemistry, Immunofluorescence and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.
