  • Poly18339_PURE_Keratin15_Antibody_1_IHC_053116
    IHC staining of anti-Keratin 15 antibody (Poly18339) on formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded human skin tissue. Following antigen retrieval using Sodium Citrate, the tissue was incubated with the primary antibody at 1 µg/ml for 60 minutes at room temperature. After incubation with biotinylated anti-chicken antibody, the tissue was labeled with BioLegend's HRP labeling reagent followed by addition of AEC Chromogen Concentrate. The tissue was then counterstained with hematoxylin, according to the protocol provided.
  • Poly18339_PURE_Keratin15_Antibody_2_WB_053116
    Western blot of anti-Keratin 15 antibody (Poly18339). Lane 1: Molecular weight marker; Lane 2: Human skin lysate. The blot was incubated with the primary antibody at 5 µg/ml for 24 hours at 4°C, followed by incubation with an HRP goat anti-chicken IgY secondary antibody and chemiluminescence detection.

Keratins are intermediate filament proteins responsible for the structural integrity of epithelial cells and are subdivided into cytokeratins and hair keratins. Keratin 15 is a member of the type I cytokeratin family. Most of the type I cytokeratins consist of acidic proteins which are arranged in pairs of heterotypic keratin chain. Keratin 15 has been associated with diseases such as malignant syringoma and morpheaform basal cell carcinoma.
