Keratin clone AE1/AE3 is a broad spectrum cytokeratin antibody that reacts with many low- and high-molecular weight-keratins in a filamentous or membrane pattern in the epithelium of most organs. Diagnostically, antikeratin antibodies are usually applied as part of a panel to determine cell lineage of poorly differentiated malignant tumors. CK903 is a high molecular weight cytokeratin present in all squamous epithelium and their carcinomas. This antibody recognizes cytokeratins 1, 5, 10 and 14 that are found in complex epithelia. There has been no reactivity with cells derived from simple epithelia, mesenchymal tumors, lymphomas, melanomas, neural tumors and neuroendocrine tumors. One useful application is the identification of the basal cell layer in prostate tissue in the determination of carcinoma.
