Cytokeratin 16 Information for Pathologists
Molecular weight of 48 kDa. Paired with keratin 6. Activated keratinocytes produce keratin 6, 16, 17, not normally present (Am J Pathol 1998;152:1133). Upregulated in benign keratinocyte hyperplasia, including psoriasis; prepsoriatic skin may be converted to a distinct adult tissue type resembling hard palate (J Investig Dermatol Symp Proc 2006;11:16). Also upregulated in stress incontinence in periurethral vaginal wall (Hum Reprod 2006;21:22), conjunctival epithelium in SjogrenÂs syndrome (Exp Eye Res 2003;77:17).
Common Uses By Pathologists:
No significant clinical use by pathologists. Positive staining - normal Esophagus. Hair, nail and glands of epidermis. Melanocytes (Am J Dermatopathol 2005;27:476).
