Pan-Cytokeratin, 2 Clones (AE1/AE3)Catalog number: CK102
Pan-Cytokeratin (AE1/AE3) contains two different clones, which label the majority of normal epithelia and carcinoma. Cytokeratins are a group of water soluble filament proteins, which are components of the cytoskeleton of the epidermis and other epithelial cells. Gelelectrophoretic investigation revealed 20 different Cytokeratins, characterised by different molecular sizes and pI-values. They can be subdivided into basic and acid subfamilies. The nomenclature according to Moll et al. (1982) is most commonly used. Basic cytokeratins (52-67 kD) and acid cytokeratins (40, 48, 50, 50', 56,5 kD) CK 1-8, 10, 14-16 and 19 according to the nomenclature by Moll (1982) .
Immunogen: Human epithelial keratins
Antibody solution in stabilizing phosphate buffer pH 7.3. Contains 0.09 % sodium azide**. The volume is sufficient for at least 200 immunohistochemical tests (100 µl working solution / test). Use appropriate antibody diluent e.g. BIOLOGO Art .No. PU002.
Purification Method: Antibody solution in stabilizing phosphate buffer pH 7.3. Contains 0.09 % sodium azide**. The volume is sufficient for at least 200 immunohistochemical tests (100 µl working solution / test). Use appropriate antibody diluent e.g. BIOLOGO Art .No. PU002.
