Safety Data Sheet


Intended Use For In Vitro Diagnostic Use
Summary and Explanation Cytokeratin 5 (58 kDa) is a high-molecular weight, basic type of cytokeratin expressed in basal, intermediate and superficial-cell layers of stratified epithelia as well as transitional epithelia, complex epithelia, mesothelial cells and Mesothelioma. Cytokeratin 6 (56 kD) is also a high-molecular weight, basic type cytokeratin expressed by proliferating squamous epithelium often paired with Cytokeratin 16.
CK 5 and 6 are positively seen in nearly 100% of Malignant Mesotheliomas and are rarely seen in Lung Adenocarcinomas. CK 5 and 6 can positively be seen in undifferentiated Large-cell Carcinoma as well as Squamous Carcinoma. Fewer than 10% of Carcinomas of the breast, colon, and prostate stain positively for this marker. CK 5 and 6 have also been used successfully as a myoepithelial cell marker in the prostate to determine malignancy.
