    • Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence analysis of HaCaT (Human keratinocyte cell line) labelling Cytokeratin 6 with purified ab52620 at 1/1000. Cells were fixed with 4% PFA and permeabilized with 0.1% triton X-100. ab150077 Goat anti rabbit IgG (Alexa Fluor® 488) at 1/1000 was used as the secondary antibody. Nuclei were counterstained with DAPI. PBS was used instead of the primary antibody as the negative control.

    Customer reviews and Q&As


    Thank you for contacting us.

    The exact ab52620’s immunogen shares 40% identity with Cytokeratin 14 (UniProt: P02533). I would not predict cross-reactivity, but it is not guaranteed without testing.

    I hope this helps and if I can assist further, please do not hesitate to contact me.
