is pleased to announce the newest additions to its expanding line of keratin antibodies.
Backed by AnaSpec’s antibody guarantee*, these type I acidic keratin antibodies
(keratin –10, -13 and -14) have been tested in applications such as western
blots or IHC.
filaments (IFs), together with actin microfilaments and tubulin microtubules,
comprise the three major cytoskeletal networks that are found in most eukaryotic
cells.1 Keratins, which are the largest IF protein subgroup, can
be divided into the acidic type I (K9-K20) and basic type II (K1-K8) Keratins.2
Typically, epithelial cells express at least one of each type, and the proteins
exist in the cells as noncovalent obligate heteropolymers. Keratin networks
are highly dynamic and reorganized during cell differentiation, mitosis and
apoptosis, and also play important cytoprotective and structural support roles
for the cell.3,4

Figure 2. IHCs of FFPE human breast tissue sections probed with
anti-keratin-14 (IN), Cat# 55080 at 1:150 dilution. Antigen retrieval was
accomplished by using 0.01% pepsin diluted in HCl, pH 2, incubated for
30 min at 37 in a humidified chamber. Secondary antibody used was donkey
anti-rabbit labeled with Alexa-488 (Invitrogen), and nuclei were stained
with DAPI. Images courtesy of Dr. Andra Frost, Univ. of Alabama at Birmingham.
