 PRODUCT CODE   RDI-PRO61007    $375.00/vial

CLONE        Ks 13.1


IMMUNIZING ANTIGEN   Cytokeratin 13 purified from human oesophagus

SOURCE    Mouse ascitic fluid

PURIFICATION METHOD    Protein A affinity chromatography

SPECIFICITY   This antibody reacts with human cytokeratin 13 with minor affinity for cytokeratins 14 and 17. Cytokeratin 13 (54 kDa) is expressed by several stratified squamous epithelia such as vagina, tongue, oral mucosa, oesophagus, epidermis and urothelium of bladder. Squamous cell carcinomas such as cervical carcinomas, cloacogenic carcinomas and transitional cell carcinoma of bladder also express cytokeratin 13.


*Identification of cytokeratin 13 expressing tissues by indirect immunofluorescence staining or by indirect immunoperoxidase staining of frozen sections

*Identification of cytokeratin 13 expressing tissues in formalin fixed wax embedded tissue sections by immunohistochemistry

* excellent for identifying various forms of squamous metaplasia and cell type heterogeneity

*Western blotting
