Diversity in immunoreactivity of tumor-derived cytokeratin monoclonal antibodies.


The cytokeratins 8, 18, and 19, expressed in many normal and malignant epithelial cells, were purified from human gastrointestinal tumors and used as immunogen for hybridoma generation. The reactivity pattern of five of the generated ten monoclonal antibodies (MAb) was characterized biochemically and immunohistochemically. All of the generated MAb were… (More)
