Cytokeratins are polypeptide chains that constituent major part of epithelial cell cytoskeleton. Cytokeratin (CAM 5.2) expression is seen in majority of epithelial tumors, including lung, liver, Breast Carcinoma, Gastro-Intestinal tract, breast, genitourinary system, female reproductive organs and some endocrine organs. It might not react with some squamous cell carcinomas. This antibody can be successfully used as a clinically reliable marker for neoplasms of epithelial origin and for distinguishing carcinomas from malignant tumors of nonepithelial origin such as lymphomas, melanomas, and sarcomas.
