  • Immunohistochemical analysis of paraffin-embedded rat esophagus tissue using anti-Cytokeratin 4 antibody. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with Tris-EDTA buffer (pH 8.0-8.4) for 20 minutes.The tissues were blocked in 5% BSA for 30 minutes at room temperature, washed with ddH2O and PBS, and then probed with the primary antibody (ET1611-91, 1/50) for 30 minutes at room temperature. The detection was performed using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. Tissues were counterstained with hematoxylin and mounted with DPX.

SEQUENCE SIMILARITIES

Belongs to the intermediate filament family.

TISSUE SPECIFICITY

Detected in the suprabasal layer of the stratified epithelium of the esophagus, exocervix, vagina, mouth and lingual mucosa, and in cells and cell clusters in the mucosa and serous gland ducts of the esophageal submucosa (at protein level). Expressed widely in the exocervix and esophageal epithelium, with lowest levels detected in the basal cell layer.

SUBCELLULAR LOCATION

Cell surface, intermediate filament, nucleus.

FUNCTION

Cytokeratins are a subfamily of intermediate filament keratins that are characterized by a remarkable biochemical diversity, which is represented in human epithelial tissues by at least 20 different polypeptides. Cytokeratins range in isoelectric range between 4.9 and 7.8. Cytokeratin 1 has the highest molecular weight, while Cytokeratin 19 has the lowest molecular weight. The cytokeratins are divided into the type I and type II subgroups. Type II family members comprise the basic to neutral members, Cytokeratins 1-8, while the type I group comprises the acidic members, Cytokeratins 9-20. Various epithelia in the human body usually express cytokeratins which are characteristic of the type of epithelium and related to the degree of maturation or differentiation within said epithelium. Cytokeratin subtype expression patterns are used to an increasing extent in the distinction of different types of epithelial malignancies. Cytokeratin 4 is expressed in differentiated layers of the mucosal and esophageal epithelia along with Cytokeratin 13.
