Immunogen Synthetic peptide (N-terminal amino acids Nos. 2-23) of Human Cytokeratin 2e (MW 65,852).
Clone Ks2-342-7-1
Isotype IgG1
Specificity Clone Ks 2.342.7.1 represents an excellent marker to study terminal epidermal differentiation. It is reactive with epidermal cells in uppermost suprabasal layers including scalp, foot and sole. It recognizes individual cells within epidermis of tongue and mamille (co-localization with keratin K10). It is also reactive on hyperkeratosis of diverse viral and genetic origin. The antibody does not react with palate Cytokeratin 2P.
Cross-Reactivity (Details) Species reactivity (tested):Human, Bovine*, Mouse** and Rat**.
Purification Supernatant
Alternative Name Cytokeratin 2e (KRT2 Antibody Abstract)
Background Cytokeratins are a subfamily of intermediate filament proteins and are characterized by a remarkable biochemical diversity, represented in human epithelial tissues by at least 20 different polypeptides. They range in molecular weight between 40 kDa and 68 kDa and isoelectric pH between 4.9 - 7.8. The individual human cytokeratins are numbered 1 to 20. The various epithelia in the human body usually express cytokeratins which are not only characteristic of the type of epithelium, but also related to the degree of maturation or differentiation within an epithelium. Cytokeratin subtype expression patterns are used to an increasing extent in the distinction of different types of epithelial malignancies. The cytokeratin antibodies are not only of assistance in the differential diagnosis of tumors using immunohistochemistry on tissue sections, but are also a useful tool in cytopathology and flow cytometric assays.Synonyms: CK2e, Cytokeratin-2e, K2e, KRT2, KRT2A, KRT2E, Keratin, Keratin-2, type II cytoskeletal 2 epidermal
