Technical Data
Cytokeratin 14 (KRT14, Keratin 14, CK14, EBS3, EBS4, K14, Keratin, type I cytoskeletal 14, NFJ)
Cytokeratin 14 is a type I intermediate filament. It is one of the two cytokeratins that distinguish stratifying epithelial cells types from simple epithelial cell types. Cytokeratin 14 is expressed by stratifying/keratinocyte cell types, but not by simple epithelial cells.

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

Recommended Dilutions:
Western Blot: 1:5000-1:10,000
Immunohistochemistry (Frozen): 1:100-1:200; Incubation Time: 1 hr at RT.
Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin-embedded tissue): 1:50; Incubation Time: >1 hr 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. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
