General Information

Biological Significance Cytokeratins are proteins of keratin-containing intermediate filaments found in the intracytoplasmic cytoskeleton of epithelial tissue. Cytokeratin represents an excellent marker for the discrimination of specific subtypes of adenocarcinoma. Keratin, type I cytoskeletal 8 also known as cytokeratin-8 (CK-8) or keratin-8 (K8) is a keratin protein that in human is encoded by the KRT8 gene. It is often paired with keratin 18.

Application product used in Fresh-frozen OCT embedded tissue, PFA fixed or paraffin embedded tissue, Cell/tissue culture
Usage 1:500 -1:100 for IHC depending on type of tissue, and fixation or 1:1000-1:500 for ICC on cells or prostate organoid/sphere tissues
Comments This is an excellent antibody, and routinely gives me excellent results. I typically use it to analyze prostate lineages in both adult and embryonic tissue. Works very well on fresh-frozen OCT embedded tissue, and well on PFA fixed or paraffin embedded tissue. Additionally it works well in cell culture and tissue culture experiments.
