Involucrin antibody | SY5
Involucrin expression is seen in the normal granular cells of the epidermis associated with the plasma membrane during the early phase of cornified envelope maturation (Ishida-Yamamoto et al. 1996) and expression is increased in psoriatic epidermis with abnormal cornified envelope maturation (Ishida-Yamamoto and Iizuka 1995). Involucrin staining is also maintained, associated with the cornified epidermis in epidermolytic hyperkeratosis, a condition associated with mutations to mutations in genes codong for cytokeratins 1 and 10 (Ishida-Yamamoto et al. 1995).
