Western blot analysis of Lane 1: HeLa cell lysate, Lane 2: NIH/3T3 cell lysate, Lane 3: A549 cell lysate, Lane 4: Jurkat cell lysate, Lane 5: MCF-7 cell lysate, Lane 6: HepG2 cell lysate, Lane 7: A431 cell lysate, Lane 8: HEK293 cell lysate and Lane 9: K562 cell lysate with KRT18 monoclonal antibody, clone 4D11E4 (Cat # MAB12606).
KRT18 encodes the type I intermediate filament chain keratin 18. Keratin 18, together with its filament partner keratin 8, are perhaps the most commonly found members of the intermediate filament gene family. They are expressed in single layer epithelial tissues of the body. Mutations in this gene have been linked to cryptogenic cirrhosis. Two transcript variants encoding the same protein have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq
