VENTANA Basal Cell Cocktail (34βE12+p63) is an antibody cocktail of anti-p63 (4A4) and anti-keratin (34βE12). Anti-p63 (4A4) reacts with the p63 molecule in the nuclei of human prostatic basal cells and urothelial tissues. Anti-keratin (34βE12) reacts with cytokeratins 1, 5, 10 and 14, and stains the cytoplasm of human prostatic basal cells. This antibody cocktail may be used to aid in the differentiation of benign and malignant prostatic lesions. The antibody is intended for qualitative staining in sections of formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue.
