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".
Registration enables users to use special features of this website, such as past
order histories, retained contact details for faster checkout, review submissions,
rewards, and special promotions.

Keratin / Cytokeratin
Cytokeratins are proteins of keratin-containing intermediate filaments found in the intracytoplasmic cytoskeleton of epithelial tissue. The term "cytokeratin" began to be used in the late 1970s (for example, see "Intermediate-sized filaments of human endothelial cells" by Franke, Schmid, Osborn and Weber) when the protein subunits of keratin intermediate filaments inside cells were first being identified and characterized. In 2006 a new systematic nomenclature for keratins was created and now the proteins previously called "cytokeratins" are simply called keratins.

There are two types of cytokeratins: the basic type I cytokeratins and the acidic or neutral type II cytokeratins. Cytokeratins are usually found in pairs comprising a type I cytokeratin and a type II cytokeratin. Basic or neutral cytokeratins include CK1, CK2, CK3, CK4, CK5, CK6, CK7, and CK8. Acidic cytokeratins are CK9, CK10, CK12, CK13, CK14, CK16, CK17, CK18, CK19 and CK20. The cytokeratins can be divided into low versus high molecular weight solely based on their molecular weight. Expression of these cytokeratins is frequently organ or tissue specific. As an example, CK7 is typically expressed in the ductal epithelium of the genitourinary (GU) tract and CK20 most commonly in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Anatomic pathologists employ such distinctions to detect the cell of origin of various tumors.
