New Antibody: Mouse anti-Cytokeratin 5 (CK-HMW)

CK5 (keratin 5) is a member of the keratin gene family. Biochemically, most members of the CK family fall into one of two classes, type I (acidic polypeptides) and type II (basic polypeptides).

The type II cytokeratins consist of basic or neutral proteins which are arranged in pairs of heterotypic
keratin chains co-expressed during differentiation of simple and stratified epithelial tissues. This type II cytokeratin is specifically expressed in the basal layer of the epidermis with family member KRT14. The type II cytokeratins are clustered in a region of chromosome 12q12-q13.

The antibody is perfect to use for immunohistochemistry on paraffin sections.
