Technical Data
Cytokeratin 10
Cytokeratin 10 (CK10) is a heterotetramer of two type I and two type II keratins. CK10 is typically associated with cytokeratin 1 (CK1). CK10 is expressed in all suprabasal cell layers and it is part of acidic/high molecular weight keratin subfamily. Defects in CK10 causes Epidermolytic hyperkeratosis (EHK), a hereditary skin hereditary skin disorder characterized by blistering and a marked thickening of the stratum corneum (1). CK10 has also been linked to cause of annular epidermolytic ichthyosis (AEI), also known as cyclic ichthyosis with epidermolytic hyperkeratosis. CK10, along with CK14, 15, 16, and 20, can be used to determine if a neoplasm originated from an epithelial or non-epithelia origin, such as the determination of metastatic malignant tumors of epithelial origin (2).

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

Recommended Dilution:
