Target

  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in KRT5 are a cause of epidermolysis bullosa simplex Dowling-Meara type (DM-EBS) [MIM:131760]. DM-EBS is a severe form of intraepidermal epidermolysis bullosa characterized by generalized herpetiform blistering, milia formation, dystrophic nails, and mucous membrane involvement.
    Defects in KRT5 are the cause of epidermolysis bullosa simplex with migratory circinate erythema (EBSMCE) [MIM:609352]. EBSMCE is a form of intraepidermal epidermolysis bullosa characterized by unusual migratory circinate erythema. Skin lesions appear from birth primarily on the hands, feet, and legs but spare nails, ocular epithelia and mucosae. Lesions heal with brown pigmentation but no scarring. Electron microscopy findings are distinct from those seen in the DM-EBS, with no evidence of tonofilament clumping.
    Defects in KRT5 are a cause of epidermolysis bullosa simplex Weber-Cockayne type (WC-EBS) [MIM:131800]. WC-EBS is a form of intraepidermal epidermolysis bullosa characterized by blistering limited to palmar and plantar areas of the skin.
    Defects in KRT5 are a cause of epidermolysis bullosa simplex Koebner type (K-EBS) [MIM:131900]. K-EBS is a form of intraepidermal epidermolysis bullosa characterized by generalized skin blistering. The phenotype is not fundamentally distinct from the Dowling-Meara type, althought it is less severe.
    Defects in KRT5 are the cause of epidermolysis bullosa simplex with mottled pigmentation (MP-EBS) [MIM:131960]. MP-EBS is a form of intraepidermal epidermolysis bullosa characterized by blistering at acral sites and 'mottled' pigmentation of the trunk and proximal extremities with hyper- and hypopigmentation macules.
    Defects in KRT5 are the cause of Dowling-Degos disease (DDD) [MIM:179850]; also known as Dowling-Degos-Kitamura disease or reticulate acropigmentation of Kitamura. DDD is an autosomal dominant genodermatosis. Affected individuals develop a postpubertal reticulate hyperpigmentation that is progressive and disfiguring, and small hyperkeratotic dark brown papules that affect mainly the flexures and great skin folds. Patients usually show no abnormalities of the hair or nails.

Answer

Thank you for your enquiry.
Actually ab52635 has been tested succesfully for reactivity to tissue culture cells, we refer to this application as ICC/IF (Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence).
Regarding species specificity, thusfar we have found reactivity to human and mouse cytokeratin 5, but no reactivity to rat protein. Other species have not yet been tested.
If you wish to stain human or mouse cells, we guarantee the antibody to work in these instances. Unfortunately we can not guarantee untested species. Please see www.abcam.com/abpromise for more details regarding our guarantee.
Also we are not able to provide small sample sizes. We only have sizes available as noted on the online product datasheets.
I hope this is helpful. Please contact me again if you have any further questions.

Answer

Thank you for your enquiry.

I would like to reassure you that our antibodies have all been tested successfully and would be covered by our guarantee in the applications listed on the datasheets. Therefore, anyCytokeratin 5antibody tested in the species and application you are using should be suitable for your applications.

Also, although we produce many in-house antibodies, we obtain other antibodies from a wide range of sources. Therefore, comparison experiments will not often have been done.

If you wish to be more certain, I can suggest choosing the antibody that has been best characterized. By this I mean the antibody that has been tested in the most applications and has the most data available (on the datasheet).

In this instance ab52635 had the most abreviews and publications. It too is rabbit polyclonal and has been shown to work in IHC-Fr,ICC/IF,IHC-P,WB,IHC-P on mouse and human tissues.

Should you have any further questions please do not hesitate to ask.
