P08729 K2C7_HUMAN:

Expressed in cultured epidermal, bronchial and mesothelial cells but absent in colon, ectocervix and liver. Observed throughout the glandular cells in the junction between stomach and esophagus but is absent in the esophagus.

K7 a type II cytoskeletal keratin. The keratins are intermediate filament proteins responsible for the structural integrity of epithelial cells and are subdivided into cytokeratins and hair keratins. Phosphorylation of keratins at specific sites affects their organization, assembly dynamics, and their interaction with signaling molecules. Specifically expressed in the simple epithelia lining the cavities of the internal organs and in the gland ducts and blood vessels

Application: WB    Species: Human    Sample: ovarian cell

Figure 2. - Effect of KRT7 on HEY and OVCAR433 cell proliferation and colony formation. (A) Protein expression levels of KRT7 in ovarian cell lines were assessed using western blotting. (B) Overexpression of KRT7 in HEY cells was confirmed by western blotting. (C) Overexpression of KRT7 significantly increased the proliferative capacity of HEY cells. (D) Overexpression of KRT7 in HEY cells significantly increased colony formation. (E) Knockdown of KRT7 in OVCAR433 cells was confirmed by western blotting. Knockdown of KRT7 in OVCAR433 cells significantly reduced (F) cell proliferation and (G) colony formation. All experiments were performed at least three times. Results are presented as the mean ± standard deviation. **P<0.01. KRT7, keratin 7; sh, short hairpin RNA; NC, negative control; OD, optical density.
