Cytokeratin 17 (KRT17) (Basal Epithelial Marker); Clone KRT17/778 (Concentrate)
Immunogen: The cytoskeletal fraction of rat colon epithelium
Isotype: IgG2b, kappa
Species Reactivity: Human, Rat, Cow, Goat and Pig. Others not known.
Positive Control: T24 cells or skin.
Specificity: This antibody to CK17 is an excellent tool to distinguish myoepithelial cells from luminal epithelium of various glands such as mammary, sweat and salivary. CK17 is expressed in epithelial cells of various origins, such as bronchial epithelial cells and skin appendages. It may be considered as an "epithelial stem cell" marker because the CK17 antibody marks basal cell differentiation.
