Anti-Cytokeratin 13


Cytokeratins 4/13 are markers for stratified squamous epithelia in internal organs including esophagus and tongue. This antibody is a reliable marker for squamous metaplasia found in respiratory tissue and prostate gland. Squamous metaplasia in the respiratory tract and in some other human organs may be associated with a precancerous condition. This 51kD Cytokeratin 13, which is expressed in internal non-keratinized stratified squamous epithelia, and its frequently co-expressed partner, the basic 59kD Cytokeratin 4, may be regarded as markers for esophageal-type differentiation.
