Target Details

  • Target: Keratin 6
  • Molecular weight: 55-57 kDa
  • Tissue cell line specificity: Tonsil or basal cell carcinoma
  • Target background: Clone LHK6 recognizes a protein of 56kDa, identified as cytokeratin 6 (CK6). In humans, multiple isoforms of Cytokeratin 6 (6A-6F), encoded by several highly homologous genes, have distinct tissue expression patterns. Keratins are a family of intermediate filament proteins that assemble into filaments through forming heterodimers of one type I keratin (keratin 9 to 23) and on type II kerating (1 to 8). Keratins demonstrate tissue and differentiation specific expression profiles. Keratins 6,16 and 17 are expressed in suprabasasl keratinocytes of wounded epidermis. Keratin 6 is found in acrosyringeal keratinocyes in normal skin.
