Cytokeratins in Nerve Cells
The only reported expression of cytokeratins in nerve cells is the expression of cytokeratin 18 in spiral ganglion cells of the fetal and human inner ear (Anniko et al. 1990b) using the antibody RCK106 (see Table 2). Moreover, the authors also found cytokeratin 10/11 reactivity, but could not show any biochemical confirmation of this finding. Additionally, coexpression of vimentin and NFs was noted.
