Cytokeratin 17 Information for Pathologists
Molecular weight of 48 kDa. Basal type cytokeratin (also 34betaE12, CK5/6, CK14) of complex epithelia but not in stratified or simple epithelia (Eur J Cell Biol 1992;59:127). Rapidly induced in wounded stratified epithelia (also CK 6, CK16); regulates cell growth through binding to the adaptor protein 14-3-3sigma (Nature 2006;441:362). Mutations cause pachyonychia congenita type 2 (J Dermatol 2006;33:161) or steatocystoma multiplex (Br J Dermatol 1998;139:475). Uses by pathologists
Common Uses By Pathologists:
Distinguish pancreatobiliary adenocarcinoma (CK17+) from extra-pancreatobiliary nonmucinous adenocarcinoma (CK17-, Am J Surg Pathol 2005;29:359). Distinguish cholangiocarcinoma (60% are CK17+) from hepatocellular carcinoma (CK17-, J Gastrointestin Liver Dis 2006;15:9). Distinguish renal urothelial carcinoma (CK5/CK6+, CK17+, vimentin-) from collecting duct carcinoma (CK5/CK6-, CK17-, vimentin+, Am J Surg Pathol 2005;29:747). Considered a marker of or associated with the basal phenotype (also CK 5/6, CK 14) of invasive or in situ ductal carcinoma of breast (Mod Pathol 2006;19:1506). Sensitive marker of sentinel nodal metastases by RT-PCR in oral squamous cell carcinoma (Clin Cancer Res 2006;12:2498).
