Cytokeratin 19 (molecular mass 40 kD) is a marker of simple epithelia. Cytokeratin 19 has been found in mesothelial and mesothelioma cells, ovarian cysts, cystadenomas, and ovarian carcinomas, in adenocarcinomas of the lung and in tumor cells of pulmonary metastases, in the ductal cells of normal pancreas and in pancreatic cancers. It has been shown to be present in the basal layer of non-keratinizing stratified squamous epithelia such as the oral cavity and the ectocervix. The RCK108 antibody to Cytokeratin 19 reacts with many types of epithelial cells including many ductal and glandular epithelia.
