PA1-24324 detects Keratin 14 in Human samples. PA1-24324 has been successfully used in Western Blot procedures. PA1-24324 immunogen corresponds to Polyclonal antibody from rabbits immunized with a synthetic peptide region of human KRT14. Store product as a concentrated solution. Centrifuge briefly prior to opening the vial. For short-term storage (1-2 weeks), product can be stored at 4°C. For long-term storage, aliquot and store product at -20° C or below, avioiding multiple freeze-thaw cycles.Cytokeratins (CK) are intermediate filaments of epithelial cells, both in keratinizing tissue (ie. skin) and non-keratinizing cells (ie. mesothelial cells). At least 20 different CKs can be identified. Biochemically, most members of the CK family fall into one of two classes, type I (acidic polypeptides) and type II (basic polypeptides). Belonging to the type I subfamily of low molecular weight keratins and existing in combination with keratin 5, keratin 14 distinguishes stratified epithelial cells from simple epithelial cells and is useful in identification of squamous cell carcinomas. It is considered a prognostic marker in breast carcinomas. At least one member of the acidic family and one member of the basic family is expressed in all epithelial cells.
