Whole cell lysates (15 µg protein) from A549, A431, HeLa, HEL (negative control) and U87-MG (negative control) cells were resolved by electrophoresis (4-12% Bis-Tris gel), transferred to a nitrocellulose membrane, and probed with 0.5 µg/mL (1:1000 dilution) of purified anti-Cytokeratin 18 antibody, clone DA-7. Proteins were visualized using chemiluminescence detection by incubating the membrane with a 1:3000 dilution of HRP goat anti-mouse-IgG secondary antibody (Cat. No. 405306). Direct-Blot™ HRP anti-GAPDH antibody (1:2000 dilution, Cat. No. 649203) was used as a loading control (lower). Cell lysates were loaded in order of descending KRT18 mRNA expression levels (source: Human Protein Atlas). Lane M: Molecular Weight Marker.

Description

Cytokeratin 18, also known as keratin 18, is a type I intermediate filament protein with a molecular weight of approximately 48 kD. Cytokeratin 18 is a heterotetramer composed of two type I and two type II keratins. Cytokeratin 18 associates with cytokeratin 8 and is widely expressed in simple epithelial tissues in adults, where it is found in the cytoplasm, nucleus, and nucleolus. Cytokeratin 18 is associated with the cytoskeleton and mutations in this protein have been associated with liver disease after environmental insult. Cytokeratin 18 can be modified by glycosylation, phosphorylation (Ser34 and Ser53), acetylation (Ser2), and proteolytic cleavage at amino acids 238 and 397 by caspase family members. The cytokeratin 18 protein interacts with a number of proteins including caspase 3, 14-3-3 gamma, 14-3-3 zeta, 14-3-3 sigma 14-3-3 beta, 14-3-3 eta, keratin 5, keratin 8, TNF receptor II, plakophilin 2, EGF receptor, and usherin, among others.

Recommended Usage

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by Western blotting. For Western blotting, the suggested use of this reagent is 5.0 µg per ml. For immunocytochemistry, a concentration range of 1.0 - 4.0 μg/ml is recommended. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

Application Notes

The DA-7 monoclonal antibody recognizes human cytokeratin 18 and is useful for Western blotting. Additional reported applications (for the relevant formats) include: immunoprecipitation, immunohistochemistry of paraffin-embedded sections, and ELISA.

This clone and BioLegend clone LDK18 displayed similar affinities when tested for western blot applications
