|Other Names||Keratin, type II cytoskeletal 8, Cytokeratin-8, CK-8, Keratin-8, K8, Type-II keratin Kb8, KRT8, CYK8|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP8542c was selected from the Center region of human KRT8. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Together with KRT19, helps to link the contractile apparatus to dystrophin at the costameres of striated muscle.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Nucleus, nucleoplasm Nucleus matrix|
|Tissue Location||Observed in muscle fibers accumulating in the costameres of myoplasm at the sarcolemma membrane in structures that contain dystrophin and spectrin. Expressed in gingival mucosa and hard palate of the oral cavity.|

KRT8 typically dimerizes with keratin 18 to form an intermediate filament in simple single-layered epithelial cells. This protein plays a role in maintaining cellular structural integrity and also functions in signal transduction and cellular differentiation.
