Ks6.KA12 represents an excellent marker for non-keratinized squamous epithelia and proliferating cells of epidermis (e.g. within psoriatic lesions).
Polypeptide reacting: Mr 56 000 polypeptide (keratin K6; formerly also designated cytokeratin 6) of human squamous epithelia.
Tissues and Tumors specifically detected: The antibody is suitable for discrimination of keratinizing and non-keratinizing squamous cell carcinoma versus e.g. poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma.
