RDI Divison of researchd Industries Intl offers a wide line of antibodies. Since no one antibody works best for all applications (neutralization, blotting, ELISA, etc), we offer many different types of antibodies to help solve this problem. Please inquire for other applications or types of antibodies not listed below.
ANTI-CYTOKERATIN TYPE 13
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
