Mouse Anti Human Monoclonal.
Cytokeratin 8 (KRT8) belongs to the type II keratin family clustered on the long arm of chromosome 12. Type I and type II keratins heteropolymerize to form intermediate-sized filaments in the cytoplasm of epithelial cells. KRT8 typically dimerizes with keratin 18 to form an intermediate filament in simple single-layered epithelial cells. KRT8 has a role in retaining cellular structural integrity and also functions in signal transduction and cellular differentiation. KRT8 gene mutations cause cryptogenic cirrhosis.
Sterile filtered colorless solution.
Anti-human KRT8 mAb, clone PAT3D11A, is derived from hybridization of mouse F0 myeloma cells with spleen cells from BALB/c mice immunized with a recombinant human KRT8 protein purified from E. coli.
Mouse IgG3 heavy chain and Kappa light chain.
1mg/ml containing PBS, pH-7.4, 10% Glycerol and 0.02% Sodium Azide.
