Anti-Cytokeratin 14


Keratins are intermediate filament proteins expressed by epithelial cells in cytoplasm. Mitotically active basal layers of most stratified squamous epithelia cells express 10% to 30% of their total protein as keratin. Cytokeratin 14 (CK14) is a 50-kDa keratin expressed in abundance in epidermal cells, basal cells, mesothelial cells, stratified epithelial cells, and myoepithelial cells in various tissues including prostate and breast. CK14 is helpful in the identification of breast cancer with basal phenotype. Monoclonal antibody to cytokeratin 14 may be helpful in distinguishing cells types of human mammary gland, thus it may also be used to study histogenesis of breast carcinoma
