DescriptionMouse monoclonal [AE5] to Cytokeratin 3/CK-3
This antibody recognizes the 64kD polypeptide (cytokeratin 3 / CK-3) of rabbit corneal epithelium. It also recognizes bovine snout and lip epithelium, as well as a rabbit corneal cell line. The clone number has been updated from (2Q1040) to (AE5) both clone numbers name the same antibody clone.
Species reactivityReacts with: Mouse, Rabbit, Cow, Human

Reproducibility is key to advancing scientific discovery and accelerating scientists’ next breakthrough.
Abcam is leading the way with our range of recombinant antibodies, knockout-validated antibodies and knockout cell lines, all of which support improved reproducibility.
We are also planning to innovate the way in which we present recommended applications and species on our product datasheets, so that only applications & species that have been tested in our own labs, our suppliers or by selected trusted collaborators are covered by our Abpromise™ guarantee.
In preparation for this, we have started to update the applications & species that this product is Abpromise guaranteed for.
We are also updating the applications & species that this product has been “predicted to work with,” however this information is not covered by our Abpromise guarantee.
Applications & species from publications and Abreviews that have not been tested in our own labs or in those of our suppliers are not covered by the Abpromise guarantee.

Tissue specificityCornea specific.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in KRT3 are a cause of Meesmann corneal dystrophy (MECD) [MIM:122100]; also abbreviated as MCD and known as juvenile epithelial corneal dystrophy of Meesmann. MECD is an autosomal dominant disease that causes fragility of the anterior corneal epithelium. Patients are usually asymptomatic until adulthood when rupture of the corneal microcysts may cause erosions, producing clinical symptoms such as photophobia, contact lens intolerance and intermittent diminution of visual acuity. Rarely, subepithelial scarring causes irregular corneal astigmatism and permanent visual impairment. Histological examination shows a disorganized and thickened epithelium with widespread cytoplasmic vacuolation and numerous small, round, debris-laden intraepithelial cysts.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the intermediate filament family.
