Cytokeratin 18 Information for Pathologists
Molecular weight is 45 kDa. Pairs with CK8. Ethanol causes CK8/18+ Mallory body like inclusions by (a) causing oxidative stress, which (b) inhibits proteasomes that normally remove ubiquinated cytokeratins, which (c) causes accumulation of ubiquinated cytokeratins (Exp Mol Pathol 2006;81:191). Various CK8/CK18 mutations may increase susceptibility to liver disease (Gastroenterology 2005;129:885) including cryptogenic cirrhosis (J Clin Invest 1997;99:19). Is a marker of fetal mid-face (primary palate) growth and fusion (J Dent Res 2005;84:69).
Common Uses By Pathologists:
Serum tumor marker for breast cancer (Am J Clin Pathol 2005;123:66) and T3/T4 bladder carcinoma (Clin Biochem 2002;35:327). An airway epithelial cell autoantigen associated with nonallergic asthma; a possible serum marker (also CK19) for toluene diisocyanate-induced asthma among exposed workers (Yonsei Med J 2006;47:773). RT-PCR to assess sentinel lymph nodes in colon carcinoma (Scand J Gastroenterol 2006;41:1073) and lymph nodes of gastric carcinoma (World J Gastroenterol 2005;11:6530). Loss of expression in breast carcinoma may be a poor prognostic factor (Clin Cancer Res 2004;10:2670). Cleaved cytokeratin-18 is a marker of apoptosis (J Histochem Cytochem 2005;53:229).
