IHC of CK34BE12 on an FFPE Prostate Tissue
|For In Vitro Diagnostic Use
|Summary and Explanation
|Cytokeratin 34βE12 is a High Molecular Weight cytokeratin that reacts with all squamous and ductal epithelium and stains carcinomas. This antibody recognizes cytokeratins 1, 5, 10, and 14 that are found in complex epithe-lia. Cytokeratin 34βE12 shows no reactivity with hepatocytes, pancreatic acinar cells, proximal renal tubules or endometrial glands; there has been no reactivity with cells derived from simple epithelia. Nerve cells, glial cells and mesenchymal tissue such as blood vessels containing only non-keratin types of intermediate filaments are not labelled; however, reactivity with smooth-muscle cells has been occasionally observed. Mesenchymal Tumors, Lymphomas, Melanomas, Neural Tumors and Neuroendocrine Tumors are unreactive with this antibody. Cytokeratin 34βE12 has been shown to be useful in distinguishing Prostatic Adenocarcinoma from Hyperplasia of the Prostate.
|Cytokeratin 34βE12 is a mouse monoclonal antibody derived from cell culture supernatant that is concentrated, dialyzed, filter sterilized and diluted in buffer pH 7.5, containing BSA and sodium azide as a preservative.
|Note: For concentrated antibodies, please centrifuge prior to use to ensure recovery of all product.
