Work with LifeSpan to design a custom immunohistochemistry to address your specific biological question. Outsource the entire localization process without having to
worry about finding and characterizing target specific antibodies, sourcing and validating difficult-to-find tissues, and having the ability to interpret the resulting
immunostaining in relation to complex human pathologies.
TCR Screening Services
Test your therapeutic antibodies in immunohistochemistry against a broad panel of normal frozen human tissue types in order to determine potential unintended binding.
Our non-GLP TCR services are designed on the FDA recommendation outlined in their "Points to Consider in the Manufacture and Testing of Monoclonal Antibody Products for Human Use".
Mouse Monoclonal [clone XM26&LL002] to Human Cytokeratin 5+14
Human Cytokeratin 5+14
Human (tested or 100% immunogen sequence identity)
Specificity and Use
XM26: prokaryotic recombinant protein corresponding to 103 amino acid portion of C-terminal region of the human cytokeratin 5 molecule. LL002: Synthetic peptide of the extreme c-terminal of human keratin-14.
Cocktail reacts with cytokeratin 5 intermediate filament protein as well as to 50 kD cytokeratin protein designated cytokeratin 14. Basal cells of human epidermis express acidic cytokeratin 14 and basic cytokeratin 5. Cytokeratin 5 is a 58 kD protein, which is closely related to cytokeratin 6. Cytokeratin 5 and 6 are expressed in basal cell epithelioma, basal cells of prostate, urothelium, vagina, squamous cell carcinomas of skin, tongue, epiglottis and rectal-anal region. Cytokeratin 5 can be useful in the distinction of mesotheliomas from most adenocarcinomas. Cytokeratin 14 belongs to the type A (acidic) subfamily of low MW cytokeratins and exists in combination with cytokeratin 15. This antibody can be useful to distinguish stratified epithelial cells from simple epithelial cells.
