|Gene Full Name||keratin 18, type I|
|Background||Cytokeratin 18, together with its filament partner Cytokeratin 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, Jul 2008]|
|Function||Cytokeratin 18 involved in the uptake of thrombin-antithrombin complexes by hepatic cells. When phosphorylated, plays a role in filament reorganization. Involved in the delivery of mutated CFTR to the plasma membrane. Together with KRT8, is involved in interleukin-6 (IL-6)-mediated barrier protection. [UniProt]|
Anti-Rabbit IgG secondary antibodies;
Cancer Pathology Markers (SQ clones)
|Calculated MW||48 kDa|
|PTM||Phosphorylation at Ser-34 increases during mitosis. Hyperphosphorylated at Ser-53 in diseased cirrhosis liver. Phosphorylation increases by IL-6.
Proteolytically cleaved by caspases during epithelial cell apoptosis. Cleavage occurs at Asp-238 by either caspase-3, caspase-6 or caspase-7.
O-GlcNAcylation increases solubility, and decreases stability by inducing proteasomal degradation. [UniProt]
