Immunogen Full length native protein (purified) (Human epidermis).
Isotype IgG1
Specificity PCK-26 recognizes the 58 kDa cytokeratin 5, the 56 kDa cytokeratin 6 and the 52 kDa cytokeratin 8 band in immunoblotting (Lane EB et al). It reacts specifically with a wide variety of normal, reactive and neoplastic epithelial tissues. The antibody reacts
Cross-Reactivity Goat, Mouse (Murine), Rabbit, Rat (Rattus), Sheep (Ovine)
Purification Ascites
Alternative Name Cytokeratin
Background Cytokeratins, a group comprising at least 29 different proteins, are characteristic of epithelial and trichocytic cells. Cytokeratin 5, 6 and 8 are members of the type II neutral-to-basic subfamily. Monoclonal antibodies to cytokeratins are specific markers of epithelial cell differentiation and have been widely used as tools in tumor identification and classification. PCK-26 facilitates the typing of normal, metaplastic and neoplastic cells and it may aid in the discrimination of carcinomas and non-epithelial tumors such as sarcomas, lymphomas and neural tumors. It is also useful in detecting micro-metastases in lymph nodes and other tissues and for determining the origin of poorly differentiated tumors (1,2).
