  • Description: Clone SY5 recognises a protein of 66kDa-170kDa, identified as involucrin. Involucrin is a protein precursor of the epidermal cornified envelope and a differentiation marker of human keratinocytes. Involucrin expression is altered in pathological conditions such as psoriasis and other benign epidermal hyperplasias. This mAb stains the involucrin in a variety of sizes: 170kDa in MCF-7 cells, 66kDa in dog, and a doublet of 105kDa in pig. It's epitope maps between codon 421-568 of human involucrin. SY5 is useful for studies of changes in involucrin expression in pathological studies.
  • Immunogen: Purified involucrin from human keratinocytes.
  • Isotype: IgG1 kappa
  • Myeloma used: P3X63Ag8
  • Recommended controls: MCF-7 cells. Localized to upper spinous and granular layers in normal skin.

Target Details

  • Target: Involucrin
  • Molecular weight: 66-170 kDa
  • Tissue cell line specificity: MCF-7 cells. Localized to upper spinous and granular layers in normal skin.
  • Target background: In Western blotting of cultured human keratinocytes, this MAb reacts with a 120kDa protein. It stains the involucrin in a variety of sizes: 170kDa in MCF-7 cells, a doublet of ~115kDa and 150kDa in gorilla and owl monkey, 66kDa in dog, and a doublet of 105kDa in pig. Its epitope maps between codon 421-568 of human involucrin. Involucrin is expressed in a range of stratified squamous epithelia, including the cornea, which lacks a distinct cornified layer. In normal epidermis, it is first expressed in the upper spinous layers, and in keratinocyte cultures, all cells that have left the basal layer express it.Involucrin is a protein precursor of the epidermal cornified envelope and a differentiation marker of human keratinocytes. SY5 is useful for studies of changes in involucrin expression in pathological studies. Involucrin expression is altered in pathological conditions: in psoriasis and other benign epidermal hyperplasias, involucrin expression begins closer to the basal layer than normal; expression is abnormal in squamous cell carcinomas and premalignant lesions, and is reduced in severe dysplasias of the larynx and cervix.
