|Alternative Name||Cytokeratin 18 (KRT18 Antibody Abstract)|
|Background||Keratins are a family of intermediate filament proteins that assemble into filaments through forming heterodimers of one type I keratin (keratins 9 to 23) and one type II keratin (keratins 1-8). The two keratin types share only 30 % sequence homology. (Ref.1-6) Keratins demonstrate tissue- and differentiation-specific expression profiles. Cytokeratin 18, also known as keratin 18, is a type I intermediate filament protein of approximately 48 kDa. It exists as a heterotetramer composed of two type I and two type II keratins. Cytokeratin 18 is expressed in all simple type epithelia and basal cells of many squamous and non-epidermal epithelia, and is often co-expressed with cytokeratin 8. (Ref.6-8) Tissues from the gastrointestinal tract, respiratory tract and urogenital tract, as well as endocrine and exocrine tissues and mesothelial cells are positive for cytokeratin 18.Synonyms: CK18, CYK18, Cell proliferation-inducing gene 46 protein, Cytokeratin-18, K18, KRT18, Keratin 18, Keratin type I cytoskeletal 18, Keratin-18|
