|Summary and Explanation||Cytokeratin 5 is a type II cytokeratin found in squamous cell epithelium, myoepithelial cells of the breast and the basal cells of the prostate. Both Cytokeratin 5 and its corresponding partner, Cytokeratin 14, are essential for formation of 8-nm filaments.
Cytokeratin 5 is expressed in most Epithelial Mesotheliomas but not by most Pulmonary Adenocarcinomas and can be used to differentiate between the two.
