Immunogen Synthetic peptide of Human Keratin K15 (formerly also designated cytokeratin 15), coupled to KLH.
Specificity MW 50,000 (pI 4.9) intermediate filament polypeptide, keratin K15, detected by Immunohistochemistry in basal cells of stratified epithelia (including epidermis, tongue, esophagus, exocervix) and complex stratified epithelia (e.g. bronchial epithelium), in luminal epithelia of mammary, salivary and sweat gland. In the hair follicle, staining was restricted to the basal cell layer of the outer root sheath. Completely non-reactive were cells of liver, colon.
Purification Serum
Alternative Name Cytokeratin 15
Background Keratin 15 is a type I keratin without a defined type II partner. Keratin 15 is expressed primarily in the basal keratinocytes of stratified tissues, including the fetal epidermis and fetal nail. Expression of keratin 15 is downregulated in some hyperproliferating situations, such as psoriasis and hypertrophic scars. Because keratinocytes in psoriasis and hypertrophic scars are activated, it is suggested that keratin 15 expression is not compatible with keratinocyte activation and the keratin 15 gene is downregulated to maintain the activated phenotype.
