Technical Data
Keratin 6 (BSA & Azide Free)
Keratins 6 and 16 are expressed in keratinocytes. These cells undergo rapid turnover in the suprabasal region (also known as hyperproliferation-related keratins). Keratin 6 is found in hair follicles, suprabasal cells of a variety of internal stratified epithelia, in epidermis, in both normal and hyperproliferative situations. Epidermal injury results in activation of keratinocytes, which express CK6 and CK16. CK16 is strongly expressed in ~75% of head and neck squamous cell carcinomas. Expression of CK6 is particularly associated with differentiation.

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

Recommended Dilution:
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
