The authors investigated the presence and distribution of keratin in germ cell tumors using a rabbit-anti-keratin antiserum and a monoclonal antikeratin antibody--which is specific for keratin classes of 40, 50, and 56.5 kdaltons--by various immunohistochemical methods on frozen sections, alcohol-fixed, and formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissues.(More)
The effect of three proteases--trypsin, pepsin, and pronase--on the immunohistochemical staining of keratins with a broad-spectrum monoclonal antibody was investigated in paraffin sections of formalin and ethanol-fixed tissues by means of the peroxidase-antiperoxidase method. Both the length of exposure to the fixative and the duration of proteolysis were(More)
The authors investigated the expression of keratin, carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), and an epithelial marker derived from milk fat globule membranes in 12 mesotheliomas and 100 diverse adenocarcinomas with immunohistochemical methods. The authors employed a monoclonal antibody to keratin designated as AE1, as well as the following commercially available(More)
