Code N°


CK528: Cytokeratin 18




Price: 100 € / 5 ml

Monoclonal Antibodies

Origin:Mouse
 
Isotype:IgG1
 
Clone:CY 90
 
Format:liquid
 
Quantity:5 ml
 
Working concentration:ready to use
 
Presentation:Antibody solution, stabilized phosphate buffer containing 0.09% sodium azide. The volume is sufficient for at least 50 immunohistochemical tests (100 µl/test). For further dilution suitable diluent like Art. No. PU002 should be applied.
 
Immunogen:Human carcinoma cell lines A-431 and MCF-7
 
Specificity:Acid Cytokeratin 18, 45 kD
 
Species Specificity:Human
 
General Information:Cytokeratins are a group of water-insoluble filamentous proteins. They are constituents of the cytoskeleton of epidermal cells and other epithelial cells. Up to now 20 different cytokeratins have been characterised by gel electrophoresis. They have been subdivided into a basic and an acid subfamily. Most frequently the nomenclature according to Moll et al. (1982) is used. Cytokeratin 18 is expressed by simple epithelia of the intestinal tract, lung, bronchi, urinary tract, liver and gland ducts.
 
Special properties:The antibody to CK18 usually will be positive with adenocarcinoma and basal cell carcinoma. It may be useful for the differentiation between adenocarcinoma and mesothelioma on one side (CK18 positive) and squamous cell carcionoma and non-epithelial tumours (CK18 negative) on the other.
 
Positive control:Breast carcinoma or appendix
 
Applications:IHC (C,P)
 
Incubation time:60 min at RT (or 2-8°C over night)
 
Secondary reagents:We recommend the use of BIOLOGO'S Universal Staining System DAB (Art. No. DA005) or AEC (Art.-No. AE005), but also other sensitive staining systems like VECTASTAIN ABC or APAAP are applicable.
 
Storage:2-8°C

Notes:
** The preservative sodium azide is known to be poisonous and potentially hazardous to health. It should be handled only by trained staff. Despite of the product's low azide concentration it must be handled with care. Dispose according to regional rules!

BIOLOGO antibodies are intended for in vitro research use only. They must not be used for clinical diagnostics and not for in vivo experiments in humans or animals.
