Anti-Cytokeratin, Low MW


The cytokeratins are a family of water-insoluble proteins (40-70 kD) found in almost all epithelial cell types. The presence of keratin appears to be a highly specific characteristic of various true epithelial cells in-situ and is maintained in epithelium-derived cells in culture, including highly malignant cell lines. Low molecular weight cytokeratin antibody AE1 has proven to be a widespread histological marker for the restricted staining of the epidermal basal layer of skin and almost all epithelially derived tumors. It can be used as a marker for cells of epithelial origin. Combined with other monoclonal keratin antibodies, it may be useful in studying the histogenesis of undifferentiated tumors
