Specificity & Comments
This antibody recognizes cytokeratin 10 (56.5kDa) and cytokeratin 13 (53kDa) in Western blotting. It recognizes only cytokeratin 13 in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue sections. It does not react with cytokeratin 10 positive, cytokeratin 13 negative epithelia such as epidermis. However, on frozen sections this MAb serves as differentiation-related marker of all stratified epithelia; it stains all suprabasal cells in both cornifying and non-cornifying stratified epithelia and more differentiated cells of squamous carcinomas.
