ARA Antibodies for Research Applications

Anti-human cytokeratin (clone 80)

           "Binding of Clone 80 monoclonal antibodies to human cytokeratin"

Hybridoma Clone    Antibody Isotype    Cat. No.
Clone 80                  Mouse IgG1          ARA19

A mouse was immunized with callus cytokeratins isolated from fresh human skin tissue. Antibody producing cells were isolated - after fusing the spleen cells of this mouse with murine myeloma cells by selecting the cells that produced antibody capable of staining human epithelia in thin sections.

The antibody does stain all types of keratin containing (that is epithelial) cells in frozen sections of various tissues, with the exception of myo-epithelial cells and the podocytes of the glomeruli.
