Cytoskeletal preparation extracted from human ectocervical epithelium.
Reacts with cytokeratin 10 and 13 in fixed cells and on frozen tissues, but exclusively with cytokeratin 13 in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissues. Cytokeratin 10 is present in keratinizing stratified epithelia and in differentiated areas of highly differentiated squamous cell carcinomas, while cytokeratin 13 is present in non-cornified squamous epithelia, except cornea, and transitional epithelial regions, with the exception of basal cell layers of some stratified epithelia, as well as carcinomas derived from these tissues.
This antibody will react exclusively with cytokeratin 13 in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissues.
Short term: store at 4°C. Long term: aliquot and store at -20°C. Avoid freeze-thaw cycles. Store undiluted.
This antibody carries the LSBio 100% Guarantee.
