Cytokeratin 14 (KRT14, Keratin 14, CK14, EBS3, EBS4, K14, Keratin, type I cytoskeletal 14, NFJ) (FITC)
Description:
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.

Applications:
Suitable for use in Flow Cytometry and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
Flow Cytometry: 10ul per test.
Immunohistochemistry (Formalin fixed paraffin sections or frozen tissues): Recommended to either microwave treat fixed tissue sections or use high temperature antigen unmasking technique. Prior exposure of fixed tissues to enzyme (trypsin) digestion is deleterious to epitope expression. The fixative recommended for use is neutral buffered formalin.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by researcher.

Hybridoma:
NS1 myeloma cells with spleen cells from Balb/c mice.

Source:
Tissue culture supernatant

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.
