Anti-Keratin16 [LL025]

Info

Catalogue Number 151123
Applications IHC IF IP WB
Antigen/Gene or Protein Targets Keratin 16
Reactivity Human
Relevance Monoclonal antibody used to detect keratin 16 mutations within epithelial tissues.

Background and Research Application
Keratins are a family of intermediate filament proteins that assemble into filaments through forming heterodimers of one type I keratin (keratins 9 to 23) and one type II keratin (keratins 1 to 8). Keratins demonstrate tissue and differentiation specific expression profiles.
Keratin 16 is expressed in suprabasal keratinocytes of wounded epidermis. Keratin 16 suprabasal expression is found in situations of high cell turnover. Mutations in the gene encoding keratin16 are associated with the genetic skin disorders including pachyonychia congenita, non-epidermolytic palmoplantar keratoderma and unilateral palmoplantar verrucous nevus.

LL025 reactivity was completely negative in normal breast tissue and non-invasive breast carcinoma. However, 10% of the invasive carcinomas tested were diffusely or focally positive with this antibody.
Host Mouse
Immunogen A synthetic peptide corresponding to an amino acid sequence of the carboxyl terminus of human keratin 16.
Immunogen UniProt ID P08779
Subclass IgG1
Myeloma Used Sp2/0-Ag14
Recommended Growing Conditions DMEM + 5% FCS
Notes Production Details
Purified using multi-step affinity chromatography with protein A.

Storage Conditions
Store at -20 degrees frozen. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.

Points of Interest
Anti- keratin 16 was completely negative in in-situ carcinomas.

Immunoperoxidase is recommended for use on frozen sections.

Concentration
1mg/ml as standard
Research Area Cell Signaling & Signal Transduction
