Anti-cytokeratin clone OSCAR (CK OSCAR) demonstrates a broad spectrum of cytokeratin reactivity. In normal tissues, OSCAR is reactive with most epithelial types, including bile ducts and hepatocytes in liver, bladder epithelium, breast ducts, bronchial epithelium, endometrium, intestinal epithelium of stomach, duodenum, ileum, colon, rectum, pancreas, ovarian epithelium, pancreatic acini, pituitary acini, pneumocytes, prostate, thyroid, skin (positive on the basal layer and negative on the superficial layers of squamous epithelium), and apocrine and sweat glands. In tumors, OSCAR is reactive with most carcinomas, including breast, transitional cell (TCC), renal cell (RCC), lung adenocarcinoma, lung small cell, lung squamous cell, endometrial, prostate, ovarian, hepatocellular (HCC), colorectal CA, stomach and thyroid. It is negative in certain normal tissues, including brain, lymphocytes and all cells of hematolymphoid origin, muscle, brain, nerves, endothelium and in certain tumors including most melanomas, sarcomas, lymphomas, primitive neuroectodermal tumors (PNET)/Ewings and gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST). Positivity has been seen on some dendritic cells in lymph nodes, some endothelia, and some muscle cells.
