The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/5000. Detects a band of approximately 52 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 54 kDa).
Together with KRT19, helps to link the contractile apparatus to dystrophin at the costameres of striated muscle.
Observed in muscle fibers accumulating in the costameres of myoplasm at the sarcolemma membrane in structures that contain dystrophin and spectrin. Expressed in gingival mucosa and hard palate of the oral cavity.
Involvement in disease
Belongs to the intermediate filament family.
Phosphorylation on serine residues is enhanced during EGF stimulation and mitosis. Ser-74 phosphorylation plays an important role in keratin filament reorganization. O-glycosylated. O-GlcNAcylation at multiple sites increases solubility, and decreases stability by inducing proteasomal degradation. O-glycosylated (O-GlcNAcylated), in a cell cycle-dependent manner.
IHC image of Cytokeratin 8 staining in a section of formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded human breast adenocarcinoma*. The section was pre-treated using pressure cooker heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6) for 30 mins, and incubated overnight at +4°C with ab193094 at a working dilution of 1 in 500. DAB was used as the chromogen (ab103723), diluted 1/100 and incubated for 10min at room temperature. The section was counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX. The inset negative control image is taken from an identical assay without primary antibody.
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.

Western blot - Anti-Cytokeratin 8 antibody [EP1628Y] (HRP) (ab193094)
This blot was produced using a 4-12% Bis-tris gel under the MOPS buffer system. The gel was run at 200V for 50 minutes before being transferred onto a Nitrocellulose membrane at 30V for 70 minutes. The membrane was then blocked for an hour using 2% Bovine Serum Albumin before being incubated with ab193094 overnight at 4°C. Antibody binding was visualised using ECL development solution ab133406.
