Anti-Keratin [LDS103]

Invented by Prof Jenny Southgate at University Of York

Info

Catalogue Number 151741
Applications IHC IF
Antigen/Gene or Protein Targets Keratin expressed in basal cells, pan-epithelial
Reactivity Human
Relevance 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 17 and 18 are type I cytokeratins. Keratin 17 is found in nail beds, hair follicles, sebaceous glands, and other epidermal appendages. It has been shown to interact with CCDC85B. Keratin 18 is, together with its filament partner keratin 8, perhaps the most commonly found products of the intermediate filament gene family. They are expressed in single layer epithelial tissues of the body. Keratin 18 is often used together with keratin 8 and keratin 19 to differentiate cells of epithelial origin from hematopoietic cells in tests that enumerate circulating tumor cells in blood. Keratin 18 has been shown to interact with Collagen, type XVII, alpha 1, DNAJB6, Pinin and TRADD.
