General description

Monoclonal Anti-Cytokeratin, pan (mouse IgG1 isotype) is derived from the C-11 hybridoma produced by the fusion of mouse myeloma cells and splenocytes from BALB/c mice immunized with a keratin-enriched preparation from cultured human epidermoid carcinoma cell line A431. Cytokeratin is a member of the intermediate filaments family.


Monoclonal Anti-Cytokeratin pan antibody has been used in immunoblotting, dot blot, immunohistochemistry, immunocytochemistry, immunofluorescence, immunostaining, detecting micro-metastases in lymph nodes, bone marrow, and other tissues and for determining the origin of poorly differentiated tumors.

Physical form

Solution in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 15 mM sodium azide.
