|Alternative name||Cytokeratin 18|
|Immunogen||Cytokeratin 18 of molecular weight 45kDa. Purified from a HeLa cytoskeletal preparation.|
|Cross-Reactivity||Cow (Bovine), Dog (Canine), Hamster, Human, Mouse (Murine), Pig (Porcine), Rat (Rattus), Sheep (Ovine)|
|Description||Cytokeratin 18 is an acidic keratin which is found primarily in non squamous epithelia andis present in a majority of adenocarcinomas and ductal carcinomas but not in squamouscell carcinomas. Cytokeratin 18 exists in combination with Cytokeratin 8, a basic keratin. Hepatocellular carcinomas have been reportedly defined by the use of antibodies thatrecognize only Cytokeratins 8 and 18.|
|Characteristics||Synonyms: Cytokeratin-18, CK18, Keratin-18, Keratin 18, KRT18, CYK18, K18, Cell proliferation-inducinggene 46 protein, Keratin type I cytoskeletal 18|
|Specificity||Ks 18. 04 represents an excellent marker to discriminate simple epithelia from those ofdifferent origin. Tumors specifically detected: all adenocarcinoma, mammary carcinoma,urinary bladder carcinoma, undifferentiated carcinoma, cervix carcinoma, hepatocellularcarcinoma. Polypeptide reacting: Mr 45 000 polypeptide (human keratin K18, formerly alsodesignated cytokeratin 18) of all simple type epithelia and basal cells of many squamous,nonepidermal epithelia. Species: Human, Mouse, Rat, Bovine, Pig, Dog, Hamster,Sheep, Fish (trout). Others not tested.|
|Application Notes||Immunohistochemistry on frozen and paraffin sections. ELISA. Immunoblotting. Other applications not tested. Optimal dilutions are dependent on conditions and should be determined by the user.|
