Human anti Human cytokeratin 18 antibody recognizes cytokeratin 18, also known as K18, CK-18, cell proliferation-inducing gene 46 protein, cell proliferation-inducing protein 46, keratin type I cytoskeletal 18 or simply keratin-18.

Encoded by the KRT18 gene, cytokeratin 18 together with its filament partner cytokeratin 8, are perhaps the most commonly found members of the intermediate filament gene family. They are expressed in single layer epithelial tissues of the body. Mutations in KRT18 have been linked to cryptogenic cirrhosis. Two transcript variants encoding the same protein have been found for KRT18 (provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008).

Human anti Human cytokeratin 18 antibody detects a band of 46 kDa. The antibody has been extensively validated for western blotting using whole cell lysates.

Product Details

Target Species
Human
Western Blotting
Anti cytokeratin 18 detects a band of approximately 46 kDa in MCF7 cell lysates
Product Form
A bivalent human recombinant Fab selected from the HuCAL® phage display library, expressed in E. coli. This Fab fragment is bivalent by dimerization of the bacterial alkaline phosphatase (BAP) fusion protein. The BAP enzymatic activity is silenced by mutation. The antibody is tagged with a DYKDDDDK tag and a HIS-tag (HHHHHH) at the C-terminus of the antibody heavy chain. This antibody is supplied as a liquid.
Preparation
Human recombinant monoclonal antibody purified by StrepTactin affinity chromatography from E. coli extracts
Buffer Solution
Phosphate buffered saline
Preservative Stabilisers
0.09% Sodium Azide (NaN3)
Immunogen
Cytokeratin 18

Storage Information

Storage
Store undiluted at -20oC, avoiding repeated freeze thaw cycles.
Guarantee
As supplied, 12 months from date of despatch.
