General Overview

NCL-CK17 reacts with the human cytokeratin intermediate filament protein (46 kD) identified as cytokeratin 17. In normal tissues, NCL-CK17 is reported to react mainly with basal cells of complex epithelia; basal cells of pseudostratified epithelium in the trachea, larynx and bronchi.

The antibody also reportedly reacts with myoepithelial cells in salivary glands and sweat glands.
