|Application ||WB, IHC|
|Immunogen||Purified recombinant fragment of human Cytokeratin 18 (aa391-483) expressed in E. Coli.|
|Calculated MW||48kDa KDa|
|Other Names||CK18; CYK18; KRT18|
|Format||Ascitic fluid containing 0.03% sodium azide.|
|Storage||Store at +4°C short term. Store at -20°C long term. Avoid freeze / thaw cycle.|
|Function||Involved in the uptake of thrombin-antithrombin complexes by hepatic cells (By similarity). When phosphorylated, plays a role in filament reorganization. Involved in the delivery of mutated CFTR to the plasma membrane. Together with KRT8, is involved in interleukin-6 (IL-6)-mediated barrier protection.|

Cytokeratin 18, also known as CK18, CYK18, KRT18. Entrez Protein NP_000215. It encodes the type I intermediate filament chain keratin 18. Keratin 18, together with its filament partner keratin 8, are perhaps the most commonly found members of the intermediate filament gene family. They are expressed in single layer epithelial tissues of the body. Mutations in this gene have been linked to cryptogenic cirrhosis. Two transcript variants encoding the same protein have been found for this gene.
