Technical Data
KRT18, CT (Keratin, Type I Cytoskeletal 18, Cytokeratin-18, CK-18, Keratin-18, K18, Cell Proliferation-inducing Gene 46 Protein, PIG46, CYK18)
KRT18 is the type I intermediate filament chain keratin 18. Keratin 18, together with its filament partner keratin 8, are perhaps the most commonly found members of the intermediate filament family. They are expressed in single layer epithelial tissues of the body. Mutations in its gene have been linked to cryptogenic cirrhosis.

Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot, Flow Cytometry, and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Western Blot: 1:50-1:100
ELISA: 1:1,000
Immunohistochemistry: 1:50-1:100
Flow Cytometry: 1:10-1:50
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
