Reactivity Human
Relevance Keratin 19 was first detected in squamous cell carcinoma lines and it is identifiable by its characteristically low molecular weight on SDS gels at 40 kD. It is generally regarded as being characteristic of simple epithelia such as intestine, kidney collecting ducts, gallbladder, mesothelium, and glandular secretory cells. Keratin 19 has unusually wide tissue distribution, and has been reported to be present, in significant quantities and under apparently normal conditions, in both stratified and squamous epithelia. Keratin 19 is a tumour marker used to establish poor prognosis in several types of carcinoma including hepatocellular and NSCL.
