  • Tissue specificity
    Seen in all suprabasal cell layers including stratum corneum.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in KRT10 are a cause of bullous congenital ichthyosiform erythroderma (BCIE) [MIM:113800]; also known as epidermolytic hyperkeratosis (EHK) or bullous erythroderma ichthyosiformis congenita of Brocq. BCIE is an autosomal dominant skin disorder characterized by widespread blistering and an ichthyotic erythroderma at birth that persist into adulthood. Histologically there is a diffuse epidermolytic degeneration in the lower spinous layer of the epidermis. Within a few weeks from birth, erythroderma and blister formation diminish and hyperkeratoses develop.
    Defects in KRT10 are a cause of ichthyosis annular epidermolytic (AEI) [MIM:607602]; also known as cyclic ichthyosis with epidermolytic hyperkeratosis. AEI is a skin disorder resembling bullous congenital ichthyosiform erythroderma. Affected individuals present with bullous ichthyosis in early childhood and hyperkeratotic lichenified plaques in the flexural areas and extensor surfaces at later ages. The feature that distinguishes AEI from BCIE is dramatic episodes of flares of annular polycyclic plaques with scale, which coalesce to involve most of the body surface and can persist for several weeks or even months.

Anti-Cytokeratin 10 antibody [DE-K10] images

  • IHC image on a frozen section of  dog skin showing its strong reactivity in the keratinizing epidermal cells.

  • IHC image of ab9026 staining in Human cervix formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica BondTM system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab9026, 5µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.

    For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.

  • Mesenchymal-epidermal interactions assessed by heterologous organotypic co-cultures (OTC). Heterologous OTC consisting of mice deficient for cathepsin L +/+ fibroblasts in collagen type I gels topped by normal human primary keratinocytes were grown air-exposed for 7 days. Paraffin sections were stained in haematoxylin and eosin (HE) or by immunohistochemistry for the proliferation marker Ki67 (Ki67, brown nuclear staining) and the differentiation markers cytokeratin 10 (K10, ab9026 1/100 dilution, brown staining) and transglutaminase (TG, brown staining). Bar 100 µm.

I'm sorry to hear you are having problem with ab9026. Spotting can be frequently caused by the blocking agent you use, I would therefore try filtering it and leaving on the membrane for 30min, then rinsing the membrane with TBST. Incubate the prima...

The exact epitope of Ab9026 is not known. I'm afraid you just have to try and see if your truncated protein is still recognized by Ab9026.
