Specificity: Amphibian and Mammalian; Applications: IHC IF WB

Description and applications

1-  Mouse antibody against Amphibian and Mammalian Keratin 7 (Subclass: IgG1)

Keratins are a family of intermediate filament proteins that assemble into filaments through forming heterodimers of one type I keratin (keratins 9 to 23) and one type II keratin (keratins 1 to 8). Keratins demonstrate tissue and differentiation specific expression profiles. Keratins 7 and 8 are two closely related type II keratins characteristic of simple epithelia. Keratin 7 is less widespread than keratin 8 and is expressed in sebaceous and sweat glands and some cells of the inner hair root sheath. Keratin 7 is often co-expressed with keratin 19. LP1K has some weak reactivity with keratin 8 and other type II keratins.

Applications:  IHC IF WB
