|Alternative name||Cytokeratin 8|
|Immunogen||Cytoskeletal proteins from cultured HeLa cells|
|Cross-Reactivity||Hamster, Human, Mouse (Murine), Rat (Rattus)|
|Description||Cytokeratin 8 belongs to the type B (basic) subfamily of high molecular weight keratins andexists in combination with cytokeratin 18. Cytokeratin 8 is primarily found in the nonsquamous epithelia and is present in majority of adenocarcinomas and ductal carcinomas. It is absent in squamous cell carcinomas. Hepatocellular carcinomas are defined by theuse of antibodies that recognize only cytokeratin polypeptides 8 and 18.|
|Characteristics||Synonyms: KRT8, CYK8, Cytokeratin-8, CK8, Keratin-8, K8, Cytokeratin endo A, Keratin, type IIcytoskeletal 8|
|Specificity||Ks 8. 7 represents an excellent marker to discriminate simple epithelia from those ofdifferent origin. Polypetide reacting: Mr 52500 polypeptide (keratin K8, formerly also designatedcytokeratin 8) of human epithelia. Tumors specifically detected: All adeno-CA tested, undifferentiated CA, cervix CA,hepatocellular CA. Reactivities on cultured cell lines (tested so far): MCF-7, RT 112, PLC. Species: Human, mouse, rat, Tupaia belangeri, Monodelphis domestica, hamster. Negative with bovine and pig. Others not tested.|
