Cytokeratin 13 Information for Pathologists
Molecular weight is 53 kDa. Pairs with CK4. Marker of mature but non-keratinized squamous epithelium. Downregulated in squamous cell carcinoma of head and neck (Oral Oncol 2005;41:183) and other sites (Virchows Arch A Pathol Anat Histopathol 1991;418:249). Sensitive marker for retinoid bioactivity in skin warts of renal transplant recipients (Arch Dermatol 2002;138:61).
Common Uses By Pathologists:
No significant clinical use by pathologists. Positive staining - normal Suprabasal layers of non-cornified stratified epithelium, including squamous (non-keratinized) epithelia of cervix, esophagus, larynx, oral cavity, tonsils, urothelium, and respiratory-type epithelium. May be filled with mucoid material or foamy macrophages. Positive staining - disease
