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.



PRODUCT CODE   RDI-CBL197 $344.00/vial

-also availabeleFITC conjugated: cat#RDI-CBL197FT  $375.00/100T



IMMUNIZING ANTIGEN  Thyroglobulin conjugated synthetic peptide of extreme carboxy terminal of human keratin 14 (last 15 residues)

FUSION PARTNER  NS1 myeloma cell line

SOURCE  Tissue culture supernatant

PURIFICATION METHOD  Ammonium sulphate precipitation followed by ion exchange chromatography


Cytokeratin 14, a type I intermediate filament, is one of the two cytokeratins that distinguish stratifying epithelial cells types from simple epithelial cell types. Thus, cytokeratin 14 is expressed by stratifying/keratinocyte cell types but not by simple epithelial cells.


*Suitable for staining formalin fixed wax sections or frozen tissues. In order to obtain 100% consistency in staining it is considered essential to either microwave treat fixed tissue sections or alternatively use the more recently recommended high temperature antigen unmasking technique. Prior exposure of fixed tissues to enzyme (trypsin) digestion is deleterious to epitope expression. The fixative recommended for use with CBL 197 is neutral buffered formal saline

*Western blotting (band 50kda under reducing conditions)
