Long descriptionCytokeratins are a subfamily of intermediate filament proteins and are characterized by a remarkable biochemical diversity, represented in epithelial tissues by at least 20 different polypeptides. They range in molecular weight between 40 kDa and 68 kDa and isoelectric pH between 4.9 – 7.8. The individual Cytokeratin polypeptides are numbered 1 to 20. The various epithelia in the Human body usually express Cytokeratins which are not only characteristic of the type of epithelium, but also related to the degree of matuRation or differentiation within an epithelium. Cytokeratin subtype expression patterns are used to an increasing extent in the distinction of different types of epithelial malignancies. The Cytokeratin antibodies are not only of assistance in the differential diagnosis of tumors using immunohistochemistry on tissue sections, but are also a useful tool in cytopathology and flow cytometric assays.
Antibody come fromLL025 is a Mouse monoclonal IgG1 antibody derived by fusion of SP2/0-Ag14 murine myeloma cells with spleen cells from a Mouse immunized with a synthetic peptide corresponding to an amino acid sequence of the carboxyl terminus of Human Keratin 16.
Other descriptionEach vial contains 100 ul 1 mg/ml purified monoclonal antibody in PBS containing 0.09% sodium azide.

Antibody's specificityKeratin 16 is specifically found in hyperprolifeRative squamous epithelium such as psoriatic lesions and squamous cell carcinomas, e.g. of the lung. It is expressed in suprabasal Keratinocytes of wounded epidermis, a situation of high cell turnover. LL025 reactivity is negative in, e.g. normal skin, breast and lung tissue and non-invasive breast carcinoma. However, 10% of the invasive breast carcinomas tested were diffusely or focally positive with this antibody.
Research interestCytoskeleton
ApplicationImmunohistochemistry (frozen),Immunohistochemistry (paraffin),Western blotting
Antibody's suited forLL025 is suitable for immunoblotting (Western blot) and for immunohistochemistry on frozen tissue and paraffin embedded material. Optimal antibody dilution should be determined by titration; 1:25 – 1:50 for immunohistochemistry with avidin-biotinylated Horseradish peroxidase complex (ABC) as detection reagent. For use in paraffin embedded tissue sections high pressure retrieval at pH 8,0 is recommended.
StorageStore at 4°C, or in small aliquots at -20°C.

WarningsThis product is intended FOR RESEARCH USE ONLY, and FOR TESTS IN VITRO, not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures involving humans or animals. This product contains sodium azide. To prevent formation of toxic vapors, do not mix with strong acidic solutions. To prevent formation of potentially explosive metallic azides in metal plumbing, always wash into drain with copious quantities of water.

DescriptionThis antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
TestMouse or mice from the Mus musculus species are used for production of mouse monoclonal antibodies or mabs and as research model for humans in your lab. Mouse are mature after 40 days for females and 55 days for males. The female mice are pregnant only 20 days and can give birth to 10 litters of 6-8 mice a year. Transgenic, knock-out, congenic and inbread strains are known for C57BL/6, A/J, BALB/c, SCID while the CD-1 is outbred as strain.
