Target Details

  • Target: Keratin 16
  • Target background: Keratins are a family of intermediate filament proteins that assemble into filaments through forming heterodimers of one type I keratin (keratins 9 to 23) and one type II keratin (keratins 1 to 8). Keratins demonstrate tissue and differentiation specific expression profiles. Keratin 16 is expressed in suprabasal keratinocytes of wounded epidermis. Keratin 16 suprabasal expression is found in situations of high cell turnover. Mutations in the gene encoding keratin16 are associated with the genetic skin disorders including pachyonychia congenita, non-epidermolytic palmoplantar keratoderma and unilateral palmoplantar verrucous nevus. LL025 reactivity was completely negative in normal breast tissue and non-invasive breast carcinoma. However, 10% of the invasive carcinomas tested were diffusely or focally positive with this antibody.
