Cytokeratins are intermediate filament proteins that are widely expressed in many tissues. These proteins are vital components of the cytoskeleton and interact with a number of other proteins. Cytokeratins are usually found in the cytoplasm,although some cytokeratins can be found in the nucleus and the nucleolus.Product Details
