What is this test?

Cytokeratin 20 is 46 kDa intermediate filament protein that has been identified with expression primarily restricted to gastric and intestinal epithelium, urothelium, and Merkel cells. Cytokeratin 20 has been shown as a unique type I keratin that is expressed in adenocarcinomas of the colon, stomach, pancreas and bile system. It is also expressed in mucinous ovarian tumors, transitional cell carcinomas of the urinary tract, and Merkel cell carcinomas. CK20 is essentially non-reactive in squamous cell carcinomas and adenocarcinomas of the breast, lung, and endometrium, as well as non-mucinous tumors of the ovary and small cell carcinomas. Cytokeratin 20 is often used in conjunction with CK7 and other antibodies in distinguishing colon carcinomas (CK20+) from ovarian, pulmonary, and breast carcinomas.

Also known as Cytokeratin 20 Immunohistochemistry Biopsy Tissue.
