The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use 7µl for 106 cells. ab171463-Mouse monoclonal IgG1, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.
Involved in the uptake of thrombin-antithrombin complexes by hepatic cells (By similarity). When phosphorylated, plays a role in filament reorganization. Involved in the delivery of mutated CFTR to the plasma membrane. Together with KRT8, is involved in interleukin-6 (IL-6)-mediated barrier protection.
Expressed in colon, placenta, liver and very weakly in exocervix. Increased expression observed in lymph nodes of breast carcinoma.
Involvement in disease
Defects in KRT18 are a cause of cirrhosis (CIRRH) [MIM:215600].
Belongs to the intermediate filament family.
Phosphorylation at Ser-34 increases during mitosis. Hyperphosphorylated at Ser-53 in diseased cirrhosis liver. Phosphorylation increases by IL-6. Proteolytically cleaved by caspases during epithelial cell apoptosis. Cleavage occurs at Asp-238 by either caspase-3, caspase-6 or caspase-7. O-glycosylated at multiple sites; glycans consist of single N-acetylglucosamine residues.
