Cytokeratin 7 Information for Pathologists
Type II keratin of simple nonkeratinizing epithelia; molecular weight 51.4 kDa (OMIM: 148059 [Accessed 14 September 2018]). Expression similar to but more limited than keratins 8 and 18 in simple, pseudostratified and ductal epithelium, mesothelium and urothelium. Essential features Membranous / cytoplasmic marker with expression in many normal epithelia and epithelial tumors. Despite wide distribution, useful as part of a panel in determining primary site of metastatic carcinoma.
Common Uses By Pathologists:
CK7 / CK20 profiles (general patterns, specificity varies):. CK7+ / CK20+: Extrahepatic carcinoma of the bile duct (majority) (Pathol Res Pract 2003;199:65). Gastric adenocarcinoma, subset (majority are CK7+ / CK20-) . Pancreatic adenocarcinoma, minor subset (co-expression associated with worse prognosis, however, majority are CK7+ / CK20-) (Cancer 2006;106:693).
